The Taipei Confucius Temple is modeled after the original Confucius Temple in Qufu China. In keeping with the sober spirit of Confucianism the building is appropriately austere. Visitors also won #39;t find the spring couplets common at other types of temples. Some say this is because it would be rude to display the writing of another in a temple dedicated to the Sage. Among the Confucius temples in Taiwan Taipei #39;s is the only one adorned with southern Fujian-style ceramic applique. At the main hall of the temple one can see a black plaque with gold lettering that reads quot;Educate without Discrimination. quot; Every year on September 28 a grand ceremony with traditional music and stylized dancing is held at the temple in honor of Confucius.
