A nice temple with great views and architecture. Not crowded with tourists - so makes the visit even more enjoyable.

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 & walk towards Kulun Street passing by various small shops and eateries. Turn right at Dalong intersection and head straight till you see the Confucius Temple on the right side of the street.

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 get a fairly extensive education - a mix between museum and temple. This becomes apparent as I walked around the temple complex as people around me were praying, making offerings, etc. Signage in Chinese and English is excellent. Maps are provided to assist with following a logical walking tour. Displays are interesting and several are interactive. There is a 4-D movie (15 minutes long) that is both educational and entertaining (last showing is at 4pm). Combine this temple visit with the Baoan Temple across the street.
