Taipei Confucius Temple, Datong

4.2
Inspired by a World Heritage-listed temple in China, Taipei Confucius Temple ranks as one of the capital's most important religious sites. Marvel at the traditional architectural style of the temple, featuring upward-swooping rooftops, support pillars, and wood-paneled doors and walls. Admire the building's colorful decorations, which include dragons and other carvings along the top and edges of the roof. Afterwards, wander the complex grounds to see ceramic reliefs and decorative panels scattered throughout. You'll find a number of English-language informational plaques and displays detailing the history the temple. Plan my day in Taipei using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • Travel to another dimension, the question of whether it is worth everyone to answer yourself. And this question should be asked myself before the visit. You can learn a lot about yourself, ie. Whether and who I am

  • It is located within a 10-minute walk from Grand MRT Station. But when I went there, there was not much people and I was able to look around slowly. Although not so wide, there are many gates and buildings, and you can enjoy the beautiful Chinese architecture and its decoration. Especially, the main hall of Taiden is splendid. There was a person who wrote the bill to the side of the exit, and it was written that it was FREE, and the paper which translated various wishes into the Japanese was shown, and it was told to choose it. When I chose home safety, I was free to write in Chinese on red paper. Thank you, I'm sticking to the trick.

  • Beautiful Confucius temple in Taipei. The architecture is lovely and there's a lot of information scattered around the temple. There are also chibi Confucius statues, which are super fun to see.
  • The Taipei Confucius Temple was built in 1879 during the Qing era, after Taipeh Prefecture was established in 1875. During the Japanese era, the temple was demolished, but was rebuilt in 1930. The temple is modeled after the original Confucius Temple in Qufu, Shandong. Among the Confucius temples in Taiwan, Taipei's is the only one adorned with southern Fujian-style ceramic adornments. At the main hall of the temple one can see a black plaque with gold lettering which was inscribed by Chiang Kai-shek that reads "Educate without Discrimination." The temple features 4D theater which showcases the journey of Confucius and the history of the temple.
