Foreign envoys from more than 30 countries as well as officials from the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization gathered in Qufu, Jining, East China's Shandong province on Sept 26 to appreciate traditional Chinese culture.
The event was part of the ongoing China (Qufu) International Confucius Cultural Festival and the 7th Nishan Forum on World Civilizations, which are taking place in Qufu from Sept 27 to 28.
A book that compiles hundreds of pictures about the landscape, culture, and history along the Yellow River was displayed during the activity. The book has been collected by over 40 libraries across the world.
The event also offered Chinese and English explanations of the main ideas in The Analects of Confucius, which helped the foreign guests gain a better understanding of the Chinese classic.
