Located next to a seedy night market one must be careful if going at night. The Temple is historical and lovely as well as busy so see it only during the day and avoid the potential of any bad influences . A guide is helpful

Although it is an active temple, tourist are welcome to visit and take photographs while worshippers are praying. The entrance to longshan temple MRT station is just in front of the temple.

The oldest temple in taipei, crowded but orderly. Spent maybe 10 mins tops there unless you are there to pray. Must walk around the temple to try the food stalls nearby. Authentic local food.

Go early to see the locals worship. I really liked visiting this serene mark in the middle of all the busy streets. Pretty much a place you'll see locals. I suggest you read about this temple before you go in, as there is little opportunity...More

This is a nice and calming place to be, even when busy - Taipei can be busy but the temples can be a quiet oasis with just enough activity to keep it interesting. The detail in the temple is exquisite, and there is lots of...More

Yes, there are 2-3 a few blocks from Longshan Temple on the left, right, and behind. Can't remember their names, but one of them is the famous 'Snake Alley' night market.
