A semblance of culture amidst the chaotic city life surrounding it, Taichung Confucius temple was built to imitate a Chinese Song Dynasty palace and worship the ancient philosopher Confucius. Make sure you visit on Sep. 28 for Confucius’ birthday where there will be celebrations, free calligraphy classes and more. You may also want to visit here on Teacher’s Day when students from across the city ask and give thanks for success in upcoming examinations. Pay a visit to the excellent service center in the East wing of the temple to pick up a very detailed free English history of the temple. Also of note is the Martyr’s shrine a short walk away.
Opening Hours: 09:00 am – 05:00 pm (Closed on Mondays)
