  • Taichung Confucius Temple

This large and colorful Confucius Temple was built to imitate a Song dynasty square-shaped palace. Every year on 28 September, the birthday of Confucius, the main door (Lingxing Door) is opened, and a dawn ceremony is held to commemorate the sage.

A short walk away is the Martyrs Shrine, dedicated to the fallen heroes of China's wars. The impressive gateway and the traditional Chinese palace-style architecture make this an impressive neighbor to the Confucius Temple.
