'Three Confucian Sites' burst into vibrant colors during winter
A strong cold front sweeping Jining in East China's Shandong province has brought freezing cold temperatures. Even so, the Temple of Confucius, the Cemetery of Confucius and the Kong Family Mansion – known collectively as The Three Confucian Sites, are displaying a sense of vitality with vibrant colors.
