The Second Hall of the Confucius Mansion was a place where the descendants of Confucius received fourth-grade officials and handled official affairs, so its layout was more like a public hall, with some copywriting and other things, and some tablets written by special pearls.
The second hall is where Yan Shenggong meets with bureaucrats above grade 4 and is entrusted by the emperor to take examinations of ritual and music students for the court every year. There are seven imperial stone steles in the house, including the "Fu Shou" stele written by Emperor Daoguang of Qing Dynasty, the word "Shou" written by the kindly empress dowager and the picture of Songhe.
I feel the heaviness of culture, and I need to learn more
Because the Confucian Mansion was built by later generations, in fact it has nothing to do with Confucius himself. Because of Confucius's identity there, the construction standards are very high. All dynasties and dynasties have to pay attention to culture and reading. This is definitely their focus. In addition to the interior view, the entire back garden of Confucius Mansion is actually very good, and it is also worth browsing carefully.
The second hall is also called the back hall. It has a large area. It is the place where Yan Shenggong meets officials of Grade 4 or above, or is entrusted by the emperor to take examinations of ritual and music students.
