Beijing Fuxue Hutong

There is one quite extraordinary hutong in Beijing, which boasts many cultural relics and epitomizes Beijing culture; unfortunately few people have been there! Now we will unveil the mysterious yashmak of this interesting hutong for you. It is Fuxue Hutong near Nanluoguxiang. Fuxue Hutong lies between Dongsi and Nanluoguxiang. Though inconspicuous as it is, it is adorable due to its profundity of history and modern fashion stores while taking a stroll there.

Bathing in the glorious sunshine in an early winter afternoon, you seem to travel to the past time by rambling in this quiet hutong. The hutong is very secluded, hundreds of meters long and three meters wide. It stretches from Dongsibei Avenue in the east and Jiaodaokou South Street in the west. It’s an important street in Dongcheng District because of a lot of cultural relics and monuments there, such as Shuntian Academy and the Prime Minister Wen’s Temple.

Almost all the houses here face south, and on the other side of the road there are all tall back walls of the houses. During the Ming and Qing dynasties, it was the place for scholars to study and take examinations. Only students who "graduated" from this hutong will have the opportunity to go to Guozijian for further study.

Therefore, many tourists will take a tricycle tour to the hutong, listening to the story of Fuxue Hutong told by the old man. Old, serene, peaceful, the hutong is like an old man waiting for his best friend to come.

What to see in Fu Xue Hutong
1. Shuntian Academy
Entering from the west of Fuxue Hutong, you will be attracted by a magnificent gatehouse. The gold characters "Lingxing Gate" on a blue background is gleaming. It is the gatehouse of Shuntian Academy, and one of the landmark buildings of Temple of Confucius on the central axis.

2. Memorial Hall of Prime Minsiter Wen
Take a few steps eastward from the gate of Shuntian Academy, one reaches the Memorial to Prime Minister Wen, which has become a tourist attraction (5 yuan for tickets) now. From time to time, some rickshaw pullers drive tourists to the Prime Minister Wen's Temple and tell the story of Wen Tianxiang.

3. Former Residence of Emperor Chongzhen's “mother-in-law”
Mysterious as it is, No.36, Fuxue Hutong is a luxurious Siheyuan (courtyard houses). Actually it is the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Cultural Heritage with long history and numerous stories. Since it is not a scenic spot, visitors can not access to.

4. Special No.34, Fuxue Hutong
The No.34 at Fuxue Hutong is extremely special. The gate is simply vermilion, and the number of decorative cylinder also shows that the owner of this house was in a lower status in the past. However, unlike the gate elsewhere, there is a couplet hung on it, which means “kindness is the best treasure in life; the good quality needs to be cultivated from generation to generation.”
