Confucius Temple, Tainan

(3.4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
A historical landmark of the Eastern philosophy and the first of its kind in Taiwan, 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.

  • 走一趟臺南孔廟,深刻感受到文化的保存與傳承,學生時期歷史課、國文課的教導立刻鮮活了起來,充分體現了古城臺南的儒雅氣質。 
  • 台南文化之旅哦,剛逛完林百貨就到這邊來看一下孔廟。 男友一進廟就找孔子像,沒有。因為他到過北京孔廟,覺得這邊的太小了,不過我覺得就休閒的過來逛一下也是蠻好的了。就拍拍照,逛一逛,感受一下就好了。 
  • 不枉全台首學的美名!位於市區內別有一番洞天,頗有鬧中取靜的意境……加上園區內古色古香的感覺,讓人置身於濃厚的文化氣息內!!非常建議大家來體驗一趟文化之旅……
