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.

    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.

    Ancient Temple but no joss stick offering


    Serene place and on weekends, there is a traditional dance performance around 11am. No longer have joss stick offerings here. No activity except seeing a booth on calligraphy.

    Beautiful Temple


    This is a beautiful temple, it is quiet, tranquil and a relaxing place. The architect is quite lovely. There are videos about the history of Confucius and calligraphy. It is worth a visit.

    A must see to understand more of Confucius


    I saw many temples in Taipei, this was my favorite, probably because it was more of a teaching temple. The temple had displays and history and lessons about Confucius and his teachings and the impact he had on Chinese thought. I found this one of the highlights of the trip.
