3.5/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • Another temple not very special. You have to pay to get to the inner part of the temple. It is not very interesting. The tower was closed, so in all not really worth a visit. 
  • 地方小小的,當時是下午造訪,現場有滿多居民坐在某區欣賞表演,但我不太清楚表演者的來歷。裡頭裡有一間小廟,需要買門票進入,價錢不貴。 
  • Also Temple of Confucius in a variety of cities in Taiwan are here pretty good! Standing in one of the oldest in Taiwan, park-like acre. So as well as tourists, and visited by many local people, is becoming a place of rest. Just when the concert or something like that was done. 15 all in one building and is full of interest.
