Peaceful visit
May 2019 • Family
Changhua Confucius Temple is just a few hundred meters from the base of Bagua Mountain making it unmissable if walking to the mountain. I’m not sure if the structures purposely look aged, or if it’s due to lack of maintenance, but the complex looks more weathered than most temples in Taiwan which actually adds more character to it. The dragons on the rooftop of the main hall were especially impressive. It’s a nice quiet enclosed area to spend a half hour.

Venerating the sage
Jan 2019 • Couples
Confucius was not a god, but a real man, so he is not worshipped but venerated. He is known as the Sage. He is the patron saint of teachers. Confucius' birthday on Sept 28 is celebrated as Teachers' Day in Taiwan with an elaborate ceremony. Get a ticket if you can, though they are hard to find. Confucian temples lack the noise and haze of other temples instead promoting learning and harmony. Students often go to pray there before exams. This temple is well-made, but it lacks the architectural extravagance of other Taiwanese temples.

Beautiful Chinese construction
Sep 2018 • Solo
There are many temples and shrines in Taiwan, but nothing is so beautiful than Confucius temple. From that, we can understand how Taiwanese people respect Confucius. This temple in Changhua is also worth visiting. It is not really big, but it is a perfect model of traditional Chinese construction.

Humble City Temple
Mar 2018 • Solo
Upon entering this temple complex I was surprised to find it empty except for a sole caretaker. I spent about 30 minutes here admiring the several buildings. The architecture is what you would expect to find in most temples. Unfortunately, the inside of the buildings were empty except for one particular room that contained student desks and chairs. It was interesting to see how the city had grown around the temple - which is about 1/3 smaller than when it was originally constructed.

Temple visit
Aug 2017 • Solo
This was a well laid out series of buildings with loads of trees to rest under to escape the heat. Some interesting history attached and you are encouraged to have a good look around. I wouldn't call it supercharged, but there was a definite feeling of peace and harmony here.

Authentic Confucius temple
Jul 2017 • Family
Temple isn't very extensive, mostly one hall, the rest has not been renovated in a long time. Great to see if you are in the city center, but nothing outstanding.

When i passed by here there was nobody around and the temple seemed to be closed. I heard that the town is not so interested in its upkeep

Confucius really hates me
Sep 2016 • Solo
I tried to see the Confucius Temple in Taipei, but it was closed because of rain. I saw the Confucius Temple in Tainan, but it was dull and uninteresting, despite having to pay to see it. The Changhua Confucius Temple is supposed to be open until 5:00pm each day, but at 2:00pm on the day I visited, it was closed as they were preparing the complex for Confucius' birthday a few days later. So again, I never saw it. The buildings look fairly nondescript from the street, so maybe I didn't miss much.
