  • Temple dedicated to Confucius, the place is fascinating. Although it has been rebuilt identically from two temples destroyed mountainside, it remains a major work of art. Preceded by a gigantic Portal who let you see three temples built according to Chinese traditional architecture to the bright colors including statuary is remarkable. A gray stone boundary wall winds through the mountain and is covered with remarkable reliefs telling the epic of the unification of China. The view from the top of the Temple on the Lake of the Sun and the Moon is majestic.

  • Even if you are "templed " out this is a temple is worth visiting. There are a lot of steps if you climb to the top level but there is plenty to see at lower levels with wonderful views over the lake. 
  • Great clean and less crowded temple after visiting Sun-Moon Lake. Right across from a local hotel with spa in each room. Highly recommended. Not so expensive souvenir shop next to temple too
