The temple was beautiful but was too crowded on the day we visited. There are better temples in Taipei.

easily accessible place and walkways for elderly people present... my only complaint is you have to go down a full flight of steps to get to the restrooms, but at least they EXIST in this place. Still a great experience visiting here.

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.
