It's kind of far away from the city centre so don't go out of your way to reach it. You could combine it with a trip to The Grand Hotel and National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine, but it's still 1-2 km of walking. Closest MRT station is Yuanshan. The temple itself is not very big and you'll probably only spend 5-10... More

There are many Confucius temples in Taiwan to praise this great teacher and philosopher in Asia. Confucius is an important symbol in Chinese culture and philosophy. People like to pray for their wisdom and student like to pray for their exams in the temple. The memorial ceremony is held annually, which is an interesting activity for visitors.

Taiwan's Confuciun Temples aren't nearly as decorative or as impressive as the other temples you'll find almost on every street. The main Confucius Temple in Taipei is well worth seeing, but if you visit the Baoan Temple just around the corner, it's going to look very boring by comparison. The attraction here is that there's a much stronger sense of... More

We had the pleasure of wandering through the gardens here before seeing the temple and, though incredibly kitsch, they are delightful, with dragons shooting water, cranes hiding near caves and holy men debating. The temple itself is truly beautiful, stunningly intricate, outstandingly bright and colourful. A wonderful place.

Along with the nearby Bao An temple, this was one of my favorite things to see in Taipei. Nicely restored, peaceful, interesting - well worth a visit.

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.
