The temple is nice, located right next to the subway station. The structure is very impressive with typical taiwanese style. Remember to buy some lucky charms inside. The staff speak English to get what you'd like to pray for. If you have time, the vicinity also has a market, shops and restaurants

We visited the Temple on a Sunday, it was very busy as you would expect. The incense was sometimes overpowering due to the number of people worshiping at the Temple.

Although it fill up with tourist but still worth a visit to pray for a safe trip. There are many fortune teller outside the temple who can give us a word of advise. (Real or not, depend on yourself, how much you willing to believe) many vegetarian stall as well, there is a bun stall that is nice as well.

Most Taiwanese are Buddhist. This is a well kept, detailed temple. The colors and design is mesmerizing. After exploring, go across the street to the night market. Try Huzhou Bian. Just walk through snake alley and find stall 156 in the second part of the market. In the stall front, you will see two clay ovens which look like bamboo... More

Chinese temples normally are small and full of details (Dragons!), this temple has a waterfall and a gate after the main door which makes the entry something special. For me was a good tranquil and relaxing experience, you could feel the power of the prayers. This temple is a mixture of buddhism, Chinese gods and demigods, so they are several... More

Suggest to visit a temple at night time. Beautiful and ancient. I feel so calm to be here. The management is so good and there is a small night market next to the temple.

Lungshan Temple is located in the district Manka of Taipei. It was founded in 1738 and dedicated to the buddhist goddess of Mercy. Lungshan Temple of today is no longer in the original buildingd constructed in 1738. It was rebuilt in 1919 and completed in 1924.

Make sure you read up on some of the history of this place and rituals of the devotees. This temple is absolutely stunning and will take your breath away. It's also crowded and you'll see a lot of people there practicing. The other areas around this temple that Taipei is promoting as tourist attractions are not worth it.

Compared to some Buddhist temples I've visited around Asia, I found Longshan to be different in the sense that it is a "working" temple which is actually used by the community. Was fortunate enough to visit while services were being held teeming with locals and tourists alike.
