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.

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.
