Established in the fourth year of the reign of Emperor Yongzheng of the Qing Dynasty, the Confucius Temple in Changhua played a significant role in the educational development of Central Taiwan and was therefore classified as a national historic landmark.
After Confucius had died, he was declared the greatest sage and teacher, so all the main traps of the Confucian temples are dedicated to Confucius and are called the Hall of Great Achievements (Dacheng Hall). In front of the main hall, there is a section of the imperial path, which is reserved exclusively for gods or emperors and reflects the high status of Confucius.
Today’s Changhua Confucius Temple is a reconstruction from 1978, based on historical documentation. It is only 2/3 the size of the original temple, but it has retained architectural styles from the Qing Dynasty.
