An exhibition featuring a complete set of ancient articles used during worship rituals of Confucius (551-479 BC) is now on display at the Beijing Confucius Temple and the Imperial College.


The cultural relics are from the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties. They include around 30 sets of musical instruments, and were selected from a collection of around 2,000 articles from the institution. Visitors can touch the antiques and play ancient musical instruments.
