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.

Lovely space with excellent signage full of educational content. Great use of multimedia including 3D video clips and calligraphy writing. Beautiful, peaceful and thoroughly enjoyable.
Not so old a construction as Baoan Temple, but remains beautiful and peaceful! Great place to know something about Confucius and the philosophy.
