This is a site that unless you have a guide, you will not understand the story and purpose of the site. It has a lot of history and I think it is best understood with a professional guide. Otherwise, it just looks and feels like a traditional Asian garden and temple.

originally a university for the happy few, it's a real jewel and oasis in full city center: stylish lavish green

I went there on a Saturday afternoon. It was not so crowded but the last place you can visit is a bit too touristic.

Beautiful garden and historical places.
A place to see anyway.

Regular tourists may not find it that way because they would visit in groups but the Temple of Literature on a quiet day would sending you centuries into the past. Every brick, every stone feel ancient.
