  • I think it is good to visit the Confucius Temple and the set. It was felt that the shoden surrounded by the corridor was profound, and many offerings were offered before that, and it was revered.

  • Taipei City, the second ancient, the main name for the Life of the Great, the ancient elegant grand guard is the representative of the taiwan's YuJian. Hami Street is a symbol of the origin of the history that began to unfold in the Great Come en-shea. There's a wall in the security room.

  • A living museum with a sacred atmosphere. Everything is so serene and quiet. I suggest to visit this temple during the prayers in the morning, with women singing accompanied by deep-bass drum and bells.
  • I was out walking at night when I came across this beautiful temple and went in for a quick visit! It was crowded with people praying but it was still pretty peaceful and nice to see all the people praying. The temple is very beautiful and inside it's very clean! Go and visit you to!
