Hsinchu Confucius Temple opens on Wednesday to Friday from 8AM to 5PM. It is right next to Hsinchu Zoo and holiday flowers market so you can visit them altogether. The Temple was first built in 1817 at Wuchang Street (武昌街) by a local official, Xue...More

This temple was a challenge for us to find (we actually walked right by it more than once without noticing). There are maps on the street in the surrounding area (as the Vision Hall, Glass Museum, and Hsinchu Zoo are all in this vicinity), but...More

This Confucius temple is big in community. Out front there is a huge square where the community interacts in social harmony. Children play in the playground, adults converse under banyan trees and on park benches, teenage boys do tricks on their bicycles, and seniors socialize...More
