Confucius Temple, Tainan
(3.5/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • 可能為一次景點吧 能夠帶孩子來接受古禮薰陶 但第二第三次會稍顯無聊 附近老街很多小吃逛 不太好停車 要注意防曬中暑 
  • 如果不是考試前來許願,周末也可以趁天氣好的時候來野餐,但要記得噴防蚊液,這裡的小黑蚊非常多,特別是帶小朋友出門,一定要注意!
