The temple is beautiful and busy. I liked the waterfalls in the entry park as well. Close to many other nice spots.

Lovely inside, very restful and beautiful. The waterfalls at the entrance were nice and the décor was amazing. Great to see so many worshiping, young and old. I think it is better to visit at night, the lighting on the building is beautiful

While in Taiwan my in laws took me to this temple, its worth a visit. Theres lots of history. The only down side was that it was very busy and difficult to move around, not very big either. Worth a visit I would recommend.

We went here with an night tour of Taipei. I appreciated the tour guide sharing the different perspectives and ideology of this temple. The temple itself was beautiful and extremely busy. This is a worthwhile addition to any visit to Taipei.

Busy Central temple with lots of worshippers performing ceremonies and asking for blessings. The temple itself is beautiful, but it's the real life aspect that is interesting

Historic and a living place of worship. Hundreds of locals pass through, burn incense and offer gifts. A moving experience to watch a group of locals with head bowed in pray with a chanting monk. Close to subway and easy walk to close street markets.

I have never had a more wonderful cultural experience than I did at the Longshan Temple. Full of sensory experiences—people everywhere—movement, colors, smells, sights, sounds unique and thrilling. There were tables everywhere full of offerings of all sorts—food, flowers—all beautifully arranged. Large incense burners scattered...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.
