I loved reviewing the culture, and even though I got there later than the tour, just walking freely around with my travel buddy was easy to navigate. I wouldve have liked to hear the guide go over the different artifacts and history, so if you go try and get there before 4pm. Also across the street is a beautiful garden... More

When I was planning our trip to Taipei, this was the first on the list of places to visit. I've always loved Confucius' works and while this is just a replica of the original temple in China, I still wanted to see how the wise man lived and wrote his teachings. - The information online says that this is a...

What a great place to visit! The 4D film was a big hit with my kids (be sure to see the adventure in the temple version with kids, great fun!), the interactive displays were a great way to learn something about why Confucius is so influential, with ample English for Westerners. The garden across the road is also worth visiting... More

Until a jet swoops in above your head on its approach to Songshan Airport. It is just a lovely spot to spend the afternoon. While this temple has some ceramic adornments (unusual for a Confucius Temple). it gives the foreign visitor a good introduction to and contrast with the Taoist Temple across the street

Just a few steps from the metro you find this temple where people come to pray, surrounded by gardens and fountains. People come, light incense sticks, bow and perhaps add some flowers. There are colorful murals, statues, all in a park like setting. Very good

It was so much fun to go and see the different people doing Tai Chi on the grounds. There is also a lot of beautiful architecture and scenery to look at if that is more of an interest for you.

There is a peacefulness to this historic site and the park adjacent to it that I always enjoy. If you go early enough there will be people practicing Tai Chi in the park. The people taking fees at the door seem a bit random in terms of whom they charge as some people walked right in without paying.

Unlike in our visit to Lungshan Temple, we got here early in the day and were able to enjoy the peace before too many other people showed up. It's a beautiful temple located on a large spread. My wife and I found we could relax and meander through the many doorways and rooms. It's a lot simpler than the Daoist... More

Visit this beautiful temple and you can soak in the rich history and culture of teachings of Confucius. There is so much to learn and see here, from the temple architecture and aesthetics to a multimedia exhibit, which teaches the six arts of Confucian times: archery, charioteering, rites, calligraphy, music and calculation. Don't miss the gifts and souvenirs boutique where... More

Was lively and quiet when we visited, I don't think many if any people come here to observe religious practice's. Good English translations helped to enjoy this temple, really enjoyed my visit here.
