This temple is located next to a subway station. It's not very big yet many people go there to pray and make offerings. It's well organised and clean. There is a free water machine for drinking as well. You can see everything within 30 mins. This temple was around before WWII.

We went in the evening when the sun had gone down and the candles and temple were gorgeous. It's one of the prettiest temples I've ever seen, and it was great to see that it's very active as well, with lots of people praying and worshipping. It's a lovely cultural experience, particularly at night when it all lights up.

This temple is hundreds of years old – supposedly constructed in the early 1700’s. Since that time it has been rebuilt regularly due to earthquakes, bombs, fires, etc. Just the sheer resiliency of the temple is amazing. From the outside view, there are two temple roofs – making the structure more impressive as you approach it. The temple is primarily... More

It is one of the oldest and largest Buddhist temples of Taipei. It is always crowded with locals and tourists. The temple is comprised of front hall, main hall, rear hall, right wing and left wing. It is easily accessible by MRT. One can have good look at Taiwanese cultural beliefs.

Longshan temple was described as a must-see by our local friend and we're glad that we went. It's easily accessible from the metro stop and features a series of building adorned with beautiful dragons on the roof and incense bowls. The temple was packed with people praying and leaving food-based offerings - it was really fun to be an observer.

Come for the Ornate carvings and fittings in this temple. The sights and sounds of this temple are soothing, although you might want to avoid peak timings. Go late afternoon, when it's quieter. It's beautiful!
