This temple is a must-see in Taichung. The Temple’s buildings are maintained in good condition, the garden maintenance is not so good. During my visit a group of women played on musical instruments and flute and this gave some special atmosphere to the visit. Before you go there just check the opening hours.

This temple is very traditional. It has an incredible level of details and you could spend hours enjoying the hand-crafted work which it took to construct the temple. The gardens are nice and very symmetrical. They have events there at time. Not on the day I visited. I simply walked around and rested my mind to the peacefulness which this... More

All of the temples within this complex are interesting, and the place isn't usually too busy. The doors are usually open to the public, though you aren't allowed in the area past the bathrooms despite that door sometimes being open, too.

The beautiful temple behind the walls is really a surprising number of buildings put together in a peaceful garden setting. What a nice break in the middle of the action in North District.

Well, it wasn't that far but it was 97% humidity the day I went so it felt like it. I was looking forward to this place but although the main building is nice I actually preferred the gates on the main junction and left somewhat disappointed. It was good to see the place being used though with classrooms of women... More

Had a walk there in the morning before leaving Taichung. It is not far from Taichung Park and it has a beautiful garden and bridge that lead to the temple. It honours Confucius so it doesn't have a lot of people and incense smoke etc. But if you are praying for good exam results, this is the place to come... More

Beautiful temple and very serene environment. It was difficult to find, since not in a touristic area and taxi drivers not speaking/reading any English. Nice to just walk around or read a book.

My family and I visited the Confucius Temple during Chinese New Year, which means there were more volunteers that usual there and they offered some special activities. My grandchildren had taken some art classes at the temple earlier in the year, so were anxious to show the classrooms surrounding the temple itself. As we were entering the temple through the...
