Confucius Temple, West Central District
A historical landmark of the Eastern philosophy and the first of its kind in Taiwan, Confucius Temple once acted as a central academy in the religion’s teachings. Opened in 1665 under the Koxinga dynasty, the elegant burnt sienna complex sits within a plush garden, with plenty of shady courtyards in which to relax. Make your way to the temple’s center, framed by two ceremonial gates leading to the Dacheng Hall and Hall of Edification, admiring Confucian calligraphy and tablets. Wander back to the central courtyard, where locals regularly practice Tai Chi underneath the Banyan trees, looking out over the sports field to a sea of colorful kites.

楽しみにしてましたが、回収中で工事シートで囲ってあります。WEBで完了日程を調べて訪問して下さい。孔子廟全体の入り口がとても狭く、危うく見過ごしてしまいますので、注意して下さい more »I was looking forward to it, but it is enclosed in the construction sheet in the collection. Please check the completion schedule on the WEB and visit. Please be careful because the entrance of the entire Confucius Temple is very narrow, and I overlook it very much.
Great place to learn more about this legendary scholar, but do your homework as it's currently under major renovation. I guess that's why it's free as i remembered having to pay to get in earlier. Toilet here is old squad style but surprisingly clean.
Well worth the visit a very relaxing place.to enjoy an hour or so soaking up ancient architecture. Do heck out the quaint nearby shopping streets.
