「confucius temple tainan」的圖片搜尋結果The Taiwan Confucian Temple ( 臺灣孔廟), also called Tainan Confucian Temple ( 臺南孔子廟) . It is  also well known or  called the Scholarly Temple. It was built in 1665 during the Koxinga dynasty, when Zheng Jing (Koxinga's son) approved of the proposal by Chief of General Staff Chen Yonghua to construct the Temple on the right side and the National Academy. Ming-Lun Hall (明倫堂; Hall of Ethics), built as a place for instructors to offer lectures and cultivate intellectuals. On the west(right) side was the sanctuary called Ta-Cheng Hall (大成殿; Hall of Great Achievement), housing the mortuary tablet of Confucius, as well as those of his distinguished disciples. The Wen Miao (文廟) and Guo Xue compound, the first of its kind in the history of Taiwan, was thus called the First Academy of Taiwan.
