This temple is an imitation of the architectural style common during the Song Dynasty. Solemn and majestic, it is Taiwan's largest Confucian temple. Beside an arching bridge is a bronze relief of China's most influential philosopher.

The temple is also the site of the annual Teachers' Day celebration held on September 28 in honor of the birthday of Confucius. To the east, you can see the jagged left side of Mt. Banping, which looks chopped off, rising up in the background.
