Taipei Confucius Temple, Datong

4.2
Inspired by a World Heritage-listed temple in China, Taipei Confucius Temple ranks as one of the capital's most important religious sites. Marvel at the traditional architectural style of the temple, featuring upward-swooping rooftops, support pillars, and wood-paneled doors and walls. Admire the building's colorful decorations, which include dragons and other carvings along the top and edges of the roof. Afterwards, wander the complex grounds to see ceramic reliefs and decorative panels scattered throughout. You'll find a number of English-language informational plaques and displays detailing the history the temple. Plan my day in Taipei using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • We could not visit this temple, we say perhaps the best known, because it closed when we went. For this reason to be of help we enclose the photo with the opening days so you can be luckier:)

  • Beautiful Confucius temple in Taipei. The architecture is lovely and there's a lot of information scattered around the temple. There are also chibi Confucius statues, which are super fun to see.
  • The Taipei Confucius Temple was built in 1879 during the Qing era, after Taipeh Prefecture was established in 1875. During the Japanese era, the temple was demolished, but was rebuilt in 1930. The temple is modeled after the original Confucius Temple in Qufu, Shandong. Among the Confucius temples in Taiwan, Taipei's is the only one adorned with southern Fujian-style ceramic adornments. At the main hall of the temple one can see a black plaque with gold lettering which was inscribed by Chiang Kai-shek that reads "Educate without Discrimination." The temple features 4D theater which showcases the journey of Confucius and the history of the temple.
  • Great buildings with great architecture. There are a lot of Confucius stories inside the building.
  • Quiet place and the toilet is very clean!!!
  • Great place to know more about confucius. There is a move which explain a little more about(check the schedule). There are some guides in different languages (Spanish,English, Korean, Japanese, chinese and french)
