a glimpse of Taiwanese religiosity

We visited on a busy Friday afternoon and there were various activities on the temple grounds. Locals were praying, making offerings and singing.

This temple is extremely beautiful. It is extremely interesting. The various faiths all sharing this temple were astonishing. The feeling was respectful and showed that people of all faiths can exercise their beliefs together in peace.

The temple is crowded everyday with many local and foreigners. They had chanting everyday and selling many accessories from the temple for blessing. This temple is famous and many Taiwanese will go there to get the blessing

Easy to reach on metro, get off at Longshan Station on the Blue Lin. Nice cultural place especially on the weekends, good place for photos but be respectful as there are many people praying. Overall nice experience.

Situated in heart of Taipei city & one of the most popular tourist attractions. Lovely Buddha deities & old architecture makes the place exceptionally beautiful. Environment inside the temple is amazing with rituals going around, candles lit & devotees chanting mantras. Highly recommended.

Oasis of calm within Taipei. There was gentle chanting and incense burning. It's not a massive building but the architecture is lovely. It is close to its own MRT station so easy to visit. You don't have to pay but you can by incense to burn.

The temple is an intreging building and a fascinating insight into chinese religion which is complemented by the surrounding markets and restored Japanese buildings. A must see but give it plent of time to see and to take in the surrounings
