It is not a temple of worship as such but a detailed description of the life of Confucius, the greatest teacher in Chinese history and the six arts taught by him namely, Rites, Music, Archery, Chariot riding, Calligraphy and Computation. It is very educational, and its use of multimedia displays and hands on educational tools made one's tour even more interesting. Personally I was most interested in the birth of the Chinese characters and the origin of computation. It is definitely worth spending some time here when you visit Taipei. But be reminded that this attraction is closed to the public on Mondays. For transport, it is within walkable distance to the Yuanshan Metro Station (MRT Tamshui/Red line). It is also right next to the Baoan Temple.

We may have been lucky but when we turned up it was very quite and we were able just to chill with only the slightest traffic noise in the background. The temple is as you would expect a Confucius temple, and it is well cared for. As others have said its so close to the Baoan temple it really is worth a visit, and if the gates are open to the adjoining gardens they are a must.

We sort of stumbled onto Taipei´s Confucius Temple after visiting Baoan Temple and other sites nearby and we were very glad we did. It was towards the end of a 2 week stay in Taiwan and we were experiencing something like low-grade temple burn-out...but we got over that quickly when we came here and saw the place. The temple is quite a feast for the eyes with its beautiful symmetry and blue color and adds just enough variation of detail to make it stand out in one´s mind from some of the other temples that we had seen. They also have a very nice gift shop with better quality souvenirs, if you´re feeling like getting rid of a few NT dollars.

Better to choose any day other than Monday to visit. From the outside it's still possible to get some glimpses of the temple buildings: the nearby Bao'an temple (which is open on Mondays) looks a lot more impressive.
