Confucius Temple is also a must to see. This is one you have to pick. The best way to do it , is to book a tour.

This temple is in my top 10 of Taipei. I have lived in Taipei for five years. I know my classics. This is one of them! Try to get a guided tour or at least participate in the tea ceremony.

it's a bit of a walk from the nearest mrt station but it'll be worth it. there were a lot of devotees singing and chanting when we got there. they also give out some amazing chinese messages/calligraphy in red paper for free..

We arrived on a beautiful day, hardly any visitors. Quiet and sweet. The place offers traditional dance show as well as a weird animation film about confucius (be prepared, it's very low tech...). Don't miss the kind men who writes beautiful calligraphy on red paper!

fully used by the community, privately funded - a pleasant place. (The Temple of Literature in Hanoi and of course Qufu come close.) Gorgeous architecture, the best Confucius gift shop I know, 10 mins on foot from the MRT, 4D (!) movie theater, just great!...More

We went here after visiting the Bao’an temple and found it peaceful, elegant architecture and slightly simpler than the latter. Well worth the visit. There is also a cafe serving cold drinks and coffees, and specialised ices. A pleasant place fir a cool interlude
