A/V Record for Ceremonial Rituals At Taipei Confucius Temple
Illustration of  the Confucius Ceremony As the entire ceremony takes as long as 85~90 minutes, further revision was proposed by the Taipei City Association of Management of the Confucius Temple. Between 1975 and 1976, 2 trials were conducted on a 60-minute session and the new practice became the popular exercise we all know as of today. (Protocol by the Taipei City Association of Management of the Confucius Temple) .

The modern ceremony practiced in Taiwan suggests slight difference from the one conducted in the Qing Dynasty. In the Taiwan version, feast is not required before the ceremony, the practitioners offer bow 3 times rather than kneeling down. The dance is conducted by 6 rows of boy dancers, no martial dances; only vegetarian offerings are made. The modern ceremony is conducted as a show and it is arranged for easy performance and viewing.
