Worth a lookAlthough it was under reconstruction, it was a nice temple to see. It is also the oldest Confucius temple on the island.
Beautiful temple, detailed roof statuesProbably the nicest thing about this temple is that it is used: you see people coming in and going out and having their little worship of the day. The temple is not very large but it is set in quiet surroundings, an Oasis from the busy streets outside. There is an overall friendly atmosphere, the locals let you do as you wish, taking pictures is not a problem and there was no entrance fee to be paid.
Weird plaveDidn’t understand what was here to see. They had a large garden and a running track. The main building was shut for renovations. Not sure what is usually there. One section where you can light incense sticks was open. Can avoid.

The first Confucius Temple in TaiwanUnfortunately the temple was under construction due to the earthquake they had couple of years ago. The two gates in the front garden are probably the only places that are worth taking photos at this point. This temple is in the old district of Tainan and it it worth walking around.
Pooular templePopular spot, now requires an entry fee but only $25-50. Historical site worshipping one of the greatest scholars in history.
