The first Confucius Temple in Kaohsiung was the "Fongshan County Confucius Temple," built in the Qing Dynasty and located where Chiucheng Elementary School sits now. Today, only Chongsheng Shrine remains of the original architecture, though as the first Confucius Shrine in Kaohsiung, retains special meaning. Chongsheng Shrine was built by Fongshan County magistrate Yang Fang-sheng in the Qing Dynasty, and underwent several renovations during Qing rule. Today, only Chongsheng Shrine remains to worship five generations of Confucius' ancestors. The shrine's main attraction of is its roof design, featuring an intersecting structure of three beams and five decorative rafters at the building’s eaves. Ceramic dragons and gourd decoration on the rooftop add to its rustic charm. 11 stone monuments lie in the back, and have been properly preserved since Chongsheng Shrine was listed as a city monument after renovations in 1983.
