Qufu in Shandong Province is bounded on the east by Mount Meng, on the north by Mount Tai, on the south by Mount Yi and on the west by the curving rivers Yi and Si. The land is fertile here, with bumper harvests. Richly endowed by Nature, Qufu was one of the cradles of the Chinese race. Because an emperor in ancient times, Shao Hao, was supposed to have built his capital at Qufu the area was also known as “The Shao Hao Site.” Following the Xia (2070-1600 BC) and Shang (1600-1046 BC) dynasties, Qufu was the capital of Lu, one of the feudal states under the Zhou Dynasty (1046-256 BC). The State of Lu had the function of protecting the royal House of Zhou from the Yi barbarians in the east.
Qufu got its name (“winding hillock”) from its topography. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC) it gradually became a center of China’s cultural heritage, as it preserved the rites and music of the earliest times of the Zhou Dynasty. It was by means of this rich store of cultural relics that Confucius, the founder of Confucianism shaped the value system and spiritual creed of the Chinese people. Confucius, in fact, was an important representative of a pivotal era in world civilization.
