Easy to get to by MRT. Go to Yuanshan then signposted, about 10 minute walk.Lovely uncrowded setting, beautiful architecture. Devotees parade round in synchronization bout 9.15 stopping at certain points. Watch local groups exercise so fascinating .Across the road is the Baoan Temple small temple with quiet gardens.

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
