The Confucius Temple is definitely a place which should be included on the visitor’s Taiwan travel itinerary. It is the oldest temple in Taiwan and a testament to the style of old Chinese architecture. The halls of this sacred place are set in front of a vast park filled with banyan trees, where people can walk around, fly kites, paint, or simply enjoy the moment. This is a perfect place to spend a sunny day when the temple’s pink walls contrast against a deep blue sky. Only a short walk along the Nanmen Road from the Confucius Temple leads to the Great South Gate. The massive double gate stands as a reminder of Tainan’s military past, and also it is one of the most photographed attractions in the city.
