Another view from inside the Hall of Edification looking at the delightful gates. This building used to be a school, in fact it was the first Confucian school in Taiwan.

“Hall of Edification is a common title for auditoriums and the one in the Tainan Confucius Temple is no exception. The word ‘Ming Lun’ refers to erecting the social order that stands for the human relations governed by the religion and the law and awareness the Confucianism bears about the community. The religious and legal system was meant to erect family ties in the early stage of the community before it turned institutionalized and solemnized. It includes honoring the senior, caring the relative, respecting the virtuous and setting rules for both men and women. Confucius believed that a community must be built on order and friendliness and respecting the respectable must support social order and honoring the senior, and caring the young is the driving force of the society.” (http://confucius.cca.gov.tw/)

Hoping you will enjoy this slightly different view to yesterday’s up-load..

Have a pleasant evening,

Jean-Noël

Beautiful-looking buildings. I love what look like bonsai trees in the tubs outside.
