This temple complex is quite beautiful, and definitely worth the effort to come and see along with the other temple next door. A visit to both could be done in an hour.

this is just beside Baoan Temple so you would definitely see this. Not that touristy temple unlike Longshan, you will feel relax, very silent and clean. We were amazed because of the squirrels roaming around the ground. The inside comfort room is clean. This is...More

The Confucius Temple was approximately 15 minute walk from the Yuanshan station. It was a nice temple and very quiet since not a lot of people were visiting. Throughout the temple there were different exhibits detailing the history of Confucius, his followers and his teachings....More

Confucius is the teacher of teachers. A friend of mine invited me to this temple. It was very interesting. At the end of the visit, we had a tea ceremony. I didn't understand everything of what was going on because the guide talked only Chinese,...More

A more quiet and peaceful Temple. Free entrance, and the guides will happily give you a map and explain the course thru the temple. It is not very big and easy to do. Take note of the tops of the buildings. Not only are they...More

Visiting Dalongdong Cultural and Historical District should be part of your itinerary when you're a first-timer in Taipei. It's easy navigating the city's main transport system going to tourist spots. Here you just ride the MRT Red line 2 to Yuanshan Station. Take Exit 2...More

One of the most educational temples in Asia--perhaps a combination of a temple and a museum. Great illustrations. Dignified architecture. Peaceful. Visitors can take free souvenirs--my faves were the ones from their in-house calligrapher.

The compound where the temple is big, clean and refreshing. Aside from the temple, there is also an interactive Glyph history room. You can also have your intentions/wishes written in Red Cards by an old man in the temple.

Of all of the temples I’ve visited both here in Taiwan as well as around the world, this one ranks at the top of my list. Why? Because not only does the visitor get to immerse themselves in the teachings/religion of Confucianism, but we also...More
