Confucius Temple, Taipei

4.2
Inspired by a World Heritage-listed temple in China, Confucius Temple ranks as one of the capital's most important religious sites. Marvel at the traditional architectural style of the temple, featuring upward-swooping rooftops, support pillars, and wood-paneled doors and walls. Admire the building's colorful decorations, which include dragons and other carvings along the top and edges of the roof. Afterwards, wander the complex grounds to see ceramic reliefs and decorative panels scattered throughout. You'll find a number of English-language informational plaques and displays detailing the history the temple. Plan my day in Taipei using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • The temple has me as far as well liked and there is something else a Confucius Temple times. For the interested, there's more brochures, where more accurately describes one of the temples. Everything in the all a worthy photographic subject.

  • This is a beautiful spot to sit and read about the temple and reflect upon the amazing design. The gardens are also lovely - and many families were enjoying the day.  more »

  • A quiet spot in the middle of an bustling area. Children playing in the afternoon while mothers are chatting. Elderly are having a nap. Nice place.
  • Great place to see traditional architecture of a Confucius Temple and also to learn about Confucius and his training of the 5 arts including archery and calligraphy. The temple is really well signposted and has many interactive displays for visitors to appreciate the Confucian arts and history of the place.
  • The Confucius Temple, without doubt has to be one of the best temples I have visited. By all means, it is not the prettiest, or best designed but it is more than just a temple. There are different activities that help to further your learnings e.g. Calligraphy. This temple is not one of the most popular as you can tell by the limited number of tourists that go here but I would really recommend people to take time to visit here. I also got involved in the free activities such as creating a hanging decoration for Chinese New Year and getting my own card with Calligraphy by an expert. They also have a 4D movie, which is a bit of a touristy gimmick but this gave a different experience and also taught me some more things about the history of the temple.
  • Not the best temple I had seen but for a foreigner who don't know much about Confucius the place is amazing, though. If you are nearby pay a visit.
  • Get to know another Confucius Temple in Taipei. Free Entrance for all,
