台南孔子廟 Tainan Confucius Temple, Tainan

3.9
A historical landmark of the Eastern philosophy and the first of its kind in Taiwan, 台南孔子廟 Tainan Confucius Temple once acted as a central academy in the religion’s teachings. Opened in 1665 under the Koxinga dynasty, the elegant burnt sienna complex sits within a plush garden, with plenty of shady courtyards in which to relax. Make your way to the temple’s center, framed by two ceremonial gates leading to the Dacheng Hall and Hall of Edification, admiring Confucian calligraphy and tablets. Wander back to the central courtyard, where locals regularly practice Tai Chi underneath the Banyan trees, looking out over the sports field to a sea of colorful kites.

    this place was beautiful, and even though it was nestled in the city, you couldn't hear the traffic too well. There was a small street band of classical/jazz musicians playing, and many locals and tourists enjoying the music and great scenery. It's across from a weekend market, so it's a great place for a walk in the city for some culture.

    Lovely temple and grounds, great for people watching. The inner area has a small 50 ntd entry fee, but aside from the inner buildings has some interesting artifacts and information about the temple history well signed in English.

    It's a pretty cool place. It was actually kind of quiet for a Sunday, not sure what was going on there! The temple itself costs 25NT to get in, which is absolutely reasonable. The area is very well maintained. Towards the left of the Temple there is also 'old street' that you can amble down. They sell lots of food and trinkets, prefect for a little stroll.

    So beautiful and quiet place to go. We have visited a couple of Comfucius temples around Taiwan. This one is small and modest but worth a visit.

    One of the most famous Temples in Taiwan. The temple grounds are somewhat sprawling and have a few banyan trees and other greenery that make for a relaxing atmosphere.
