Beautiful temple with interesting information pamphlets in a variety of languages. Very peaceful- when I was there, a traditional orchestra was preparing for Confucius Celebrations in prep for a performance next month. Tranquil and a good place to reflect after the fast pace of Dalong St Market. Good gift shop for present ideas too!

You enter through a beautiful garden with a small bridge. The temples are nice decorated. All information in English and you learn the story of Confucius. Informative and peaceful.

That is a great temple. Also I believe that this is the most meaningful temple. A place that must be visited. And also easy to go by MRT, and a short walk.

Wonderful attraction I arrived to hear 40 children playing various instruments at 9 am - there is a lot to see and hear, the clacking of sticks as the devotees go around the inner quad twice nit yo be missed, and the video of the special events was slow however very informative

The history of Confucius is enlightening. The history of this intellectual understanding, the magnificent architecture, and the quiet solitude all demonstrate the power of this philosphy. A worthwhile experience in bustling Taipei.

This might be one of the most informative and interactive temples, if not the most, I've been to. Is it anything on scale compared to other temples I've seen? No, but they do a good job of educating the visitor on the life of Confucius as well as how the principles were incorporated in society or how parts of society... More
