彰化孔子廟 Changhua Confucius Temple

Confucius Temples in Taiwan are a stark contrast to the beautifully designed Taoist and Folk Religion temples that you'll come across as they place more importance on simplicity rather than overloading your senses with design.

The simplicity exhibited in Confucius temples throughout Taiwan and the rest of Asia is meant to be a show of respect to Confucius as well as the importance of his philosophical views of education and his influence on Chinese culture and history.

One of the common features of all Confucius temples is that there is no imagery or statues of Confucius. This is a rule that goes back almost 500 years to the Ming Dynasty (明朝) when the emperor decreed that all Confucius temples should be uniform and only havie "spirit tablets" (神位) rather than images of the sage




所有孔廟的共同特點之一是沒有孔子的形像或雕像。這條規則可以追溯到近 500 年前的明朝,當時皇帝下令所有孔廟都應該統一,只有"神位",而不是聖人的形象。
