The Taipei Confucius Temple is modeled after the original Confucius Temple in Qufu, China. In keeping with the sober spirit of Confucianism, the building is appropriately austere. Visitors also won't find the spring couplets common at other types of temples. Some say this is because it would be rude to display the writing of another in a temple dedicated to the Sage. Among the Confucius temples in Taiwan, Taipei's is the only one adorned with southern Fujian-style ceramic applique. At the main hall of the temple one can see a black plaque with gold lettering that reads "Educate without Discrimination." Every year on September 28, a grand ceremony with traditional music and stylized dancing is held at the temple in honor of Confucius.

    Beautiful Confucius Temple


    The Confucius Temple is located right by the Baoan Temple, making it extremely suitable for visiting both at once. There are tons of street food right across the temple and the MRT isn't too far away. Bonus: You can also walk over the Dadaocheng area, which is also a fun area filled with historical significance.

    Nice temple but not crowded


    We took the metro and walked here from the nearest station. The temple was rather quiet when we came, unlike the nearby Bao An temple which was crowded.

    Scholars seek good fotune


    Confucius was a scholar and a teacher. He is venerated as a sage, but he is not a god. Most Confucian temples are not very exciting -- there are no gongs, no insense and few, if any, statues. Confucian temples are for scholars. Students occasionally visit to seek good fortune in exams.

    Confucius says .....


    This is a beautiful temple with ornate figurines and carvings. The pagoda like architecture is quite striking. It is a quite and serene place to think and for introspection. Plan on spending 30-60 minutes. There is a small gift shop near the entrance.

    Taipei Confucius Temple


    We took bus route 304 from National Palace Museum then walked 5 minutes to Taipei Confucius Temple. The Taipei Confucius Temple was built in 1879 during the Qing Dynasty. The temple was quiet, as there wasn’t many visitors, making it easy to get great photos. Not only is this a great attraction, it is also a free one as well! We arrived on Friday late afternoon at 4:45PM and stayed for 30 minutes before heading to the night market.
