    Really well-maintained small temple in Taipei
    Although this temple didn’t come as highly recommended, we would definitely recommend it. Hidden away on a quiet street, it had immaculately kept grounds, beautiful architecture, and a nice gift shop (right outside) to buy some locally made goods. Overall, definitely worth the visit.

    I went in the evening (just before it started to get dark) and as the skies turned gloomy, with the setting of the temple, it was just stunning. Quiet so you could really appreciate the architecture, the setting and the history. The darkness and peaceful atmosphere added a mystical element to my visit! Read up before you go or take one of the leaflets as you enter which will highlight the key areas to look out for. Well kept. Lovely grounds. Important. There is a gift shop and toilets on the premises. You need maybe 45 minutes at the most. Dalongdong Baoan Temple is opposite so you can do both together.

    Immaculate non-religious temple
    Located near to the Baoan Temple, this non-religious temple is a haven of tranquillity. It focuses on the teachings of Confucius and there are several rooms which explains in detail the principles involved. Unless this is a particular interest the main attraction is the architecture and general peace the surroundings exude. Unlike other temples it was very quiet with relatively few visitors. It is worth picking up the free brochure from the visitor centre which explains the highlights of the temple.

    Worthwhile Stop
    We stopped here after visiting the Dalongdong Bao a Temple which is basically across the street. This temple isn’t as elaborate as Dalongbong but is very interesting. The people working there are friendly and there is a lot of informative English signage. I recommend visiting both temples if you’re in the neighborhood .

This lovely temple is dedicated to Confucius, an education centre for the man and some history about science in ancient Chinese. The main temple is the outstanding Da Cheng Temple with the dedication to the philosopher. Exhibitions on the Shidian Ceremony to commemorate Confucius, the life of Confucius, archery, calligraphy, mathematics including cubic equations. The temple isn’t as busy as the nearby Dalongdong Baoan Temple, but here you’ll learn so much more.

A very nice temple complex dedicated to Confucious and his teachings. Nothing over the top but I enjoyed making the effort to visit.

Confucius is not a God. Confucius is venerated as a Sage. His teachings are studied as a guide to ethical action, particularly in governance. Confucian temples are usually plain, like Protestant churches. Confucius' Birthday is celebrated as Teachers' Day in Taiwan. Teachers are upheld as moral exemplars.

Taipei has many temples, big and small. This temple is unlike others in that it isn’t religious, except to the concept of learning and enlightenment. Vivid colors dotted with history of Confucius and his disciples. A beautiful temple in the heart of a bustling metropolis.

Confucius is venerated in China as a great Sage. He lived in Shandong from 551-479 BCE. He is commemorated at the Taipei Confucian Temple every 28 September with an elaborate ceremony with stylised dancing and traditional music. The Taipei Confucian Temple is modeled on a temple in Fujian, mainland China, Students often call at the Temple to pay their respects before important exams. Confucianism is one of China's three great belief systems. In popular usage, it is often mixed with Taoism and Buddhism. Confucianism is not a religion, it is an ethical and philiosphical belief system. Confucian temples are unadorned and are quite plain compared to most temples. The Taipei Confucian Temple is easy to find, it's a short walk from Yuanshan Station on the Taipei MRT Red Line.

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.
