I visited Taipei Confucian Temple just as the sun was setting and therefore missed much of the activity that would have been taking place had I arrived earlier. I nevertheless enjoyed exploring the Temple, reading the inscriptions and getting a feel for Confucian ideals as...More

A lovely temple centrally located. Relatively big complex it's easy explored by foot. In general, you'll find no one speaking English to help you out with some explanation so might be worth considering walking city tour.

This is a beautiful and elegant temple. I love the color and the structure of the temple building. It worships a scholar, so things are quite different from the other temples in Taiwan. Worth a visit! You will enjoy the quiet and seclude atmosphere here....More

The temple is adjacent to Baoan temple so you are hitting two birds with one stone. The temple has a maze like layout, they do give out maps (trivia: this was the first stage of the 19 series of the amazing race). The temple grounds...More
