Despite the overflying airplanes on their landing way to the nearby airport this is a quiet and peaceful place to visit. The temple is relatively small and has a beautiful architecture with few ornaments. Very few people when we visited it. Note that It is just opposite the Bao An temple which also deserves a visit. Would recommend combining the... More

The place is like a park and very organized. There are signs and instructions all overvthe place which are very informative and helpful to first time tourists like me.We were able to watch a film about Confucius which was easy to understand because it was presented in cartoons (with english subtitles)in their free 4D theater.

If you are into educational history, this is the place to see. During the time my family visited this place, there were not to many tourist and that was great as we enjoyed to place to ourselves.

A beautiful and informative temple. The 4d cinema show was excellent and well worth seeing first so you can understand the history of the temple. It's an amazingly tranquil place in such a busy city and only 10 mins walk from the MRT. Great little souvenir shop too.

We came here accidentally. We were riding the bus when our daughter said she had to pee. So we got off and ended up at the bathroom of this temple. And it was a perfect place to walk around. The brochure & signs were helpful. Some of the interactive displays were broken, but we were more interested in the architecture... More

This temple is a cool place. The location is a bit weird, near the airport so you can see airplanes coming all the time which is an experience on its own. There are also a bit seedy quarters around but don't let them scare you away. The temple is beautiful with many things written on the walls. Read them carefully,... More

I loved the tranquil asthetics of the Confucius Temple. It wasn't overly decorated like others, but was still very beautiful. There was a monk making (free) calligraphy scrolls with Confucian sayings. In the alcoves were modern educational exhibits about Confucian beliefs and philosophies that were lovely. (And directly across the street from the much more ornate Bo'An Temple).

It's kind of far away from the city centre so don't go out of your way to reach it. You could combine it with a trip to The Grand Hotel and National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine, but it's still 1-2 km of walking. Closest MRT station is Yuanshan. The temple itself is not very big and you'll probably only spend 5-10... More
