The Hsinchu Confucius Temple was the official temple during the Qing Dynasty.
Traditionally there are door gods placed to protect the temple, but in this case, a special door was designed with spikes placed in front in lieu of the gods.
It is transferred in Hsinchu in 1957 after the Japanese colonization and restored.

Inside the Temple is the Da Cheng Hall and it is housed by spirit tablets.



Above the tablets, there are two large plaques with calligraphy
The black plaque is Analects of Confucius means "Education for everyone no matter what their background" and a blue plaque which refers to Confucius as a "model teacher for all time."
