The temple was originally built during the Qing Dynasty but was subsequently demolished during the Japanese occupation. The temple as it stands today was erected in 1930, though it briefly served as a Shinto shrine during World War II until Taiwan was given back to the Republic of China government in 1945.
Each year on September 28, the temple hosts a festival commemorating Confucius’ birthday with music, chanting, burning of incense and a large feast. If you’re interested in attending the event, buy your tickets early as they always sell out.
