  • Large temple beside Baoan. Really beautiful
  • Beautiful temple, located in quiet and relaxing place. One of the temples in Taipei, and Taiwan in general, that you must visit.
  • Quite relaxing place, full of interesting information about Conficious. Nice sections for kids too.
  • This is more museum than a temple. Which is good for tourists of course. You get to learn about the life and legacy of Confucius which is quite cool
  • Beautiful. The old part of the city surrounding the temple is full of hidden treasures and great places to eat.
