Taipei Confucious Temple. I wanted to visit a few temples in Taiwan but most unfortunately were way too busy to be able to take any decent photographs. We even tried visiting a couple at 3-4am but even them some were really busy but one of the prettiest temples but also the quietest was Taipei Confucious Temple.
Built in 1879 this beautiful temple was modeled after the original Confucius Temple in China. During the period where Japan colonised Taiwan they tore down the temple only for it to be rebuilt following WW2. Built in a really pleasant part of Taipei but in contrast to the extremely busy Dalongdong Bao-an Temple, this beautiful temple is relatively peaceful and provides excellent opportunities for taking photos.
