Taiwan Trip 2015 - Day 3 - Confucius Temple Tainan

The Confucius Temple in Tainan was built in 1666, it was the first Confucius Temple, before the end of Manchu Dynasty, it was the location of the highest official institute of higher learning in Taiwan. The Taiwan Palace of "Confucianism Study", it owned the incompatible position of culture and education, and was called "The Highest Institute". Read more from source.

If you can really walk, is really a short walk from our hotel but as we were quite tired after the first few sightseeing, we decided to get a cab , does not cost much, forgot the fare though.

There were lots of squirrels running around in the garden.

There's a shopping street opposite the confucius temple but was wondering why so many shops were not opened. Due to the rain? Sigh.
