Confucius Temple, Taipei, Taiwan photo
Confucius Temple, Taipei

The Confucius Temple of Taipei traces its origins to 1875 when the Qing court established Taipei as a prefecture city for Northern Taiwan and in 1879, construction began in Taipei City.

In 1881 the Da Cheng Hall, Yi Gate and Chong Sheng Shrine were finished, followed by subsequent additions, until the Taipei Confucius Temple was finally completed in 1884.

It was torn down by the Japanese in 1907, to make room for the Taipei First Girls High School, and rebuilt from 1925 to 1939.
