As its name implies, Wujiang Academy used to be a school. Established in 1780, it's the last remaining academy out of four old similar Kinmen institutions. 
Wujiang Academy
The neat orderly rows of wooden desks almost make you want to sit down and study…or at least write a postcard.
Wujiang Academy
The statue in the classroom is of Zhu Xi, a Song Dynasty philosopher who was also a public servant in the Mainland Chinese county of Tong An which governed Kinmen. It's believed he visited Kinmen twice and had a significant impact on its literary and academic scene.
Wujiang Academy
At the back of the academy, there's a shrine dedicated to Zhu Xi in appreciation of his influence. It's now a national monument.

    You need to walk along the corridors of this historical site to soak in the atmosphere of the good old days and imagine school children attending lessons.
