  • This site is not far from Lotus Pond, and worth a diversion. The building is impressive and we always enjoy the architecture in these places. Love the detail in the roofs.  more »
  • There was no entrance fee, though we were asked to sign in a register just so they know how many people, from where, who visited the temple. It's not a praying temple per se, but a palace like structu...  more »
  • It may not, is located north of the Lotus pond Temple of Confucius, but Taiwan cities is always one one, so interesting for tourists. And no images of God.

  • This is my first time seeing the inside having passed by here twice while staying with relatives in the neighborhood. A volunteer docent greeted me at the entrance and told me they are open 6 days a week, as long as they have enough volunteers to staff and run the facility. It's not really a temple, per se. The government built a series of shrines around the country honoring Confucius and his teachings, and his code of morality. It's both a history museum and contains replicas of items used during his day. They do hold special events in the courtyard for certain anniversaries, like his birthday. The displays are in Chinese and English. There were school groups here on my visit. It's a beautiful and peaceful space. The intricate detail of the painted ceilings and eaves are amazing to look at.

  • If you have the time to spare and while away sometime, the courtyard is suprisingly tranquil. There is a cafe/teashop off to the side where you can spend a quite afternoon with cup in hand. #traveltalktea
  • Beautiful and quiet temple. Great for a leisurely stroll around and for some nice photos. I visited at 12pm and there were no other visitors to be seen.
  • Beautiful and quiet. Free entrance. Theres a small cafe nearby at the lakeside.
