Longshan Temple is one of the central places of worship to the Buddhists of Taipei. It is a reverential place and though they encourage tourism, this is certainly not just a tourist attraction. After you pass through the main gate, there is a wide open...More

I went here last February and it was crowded. Apparaently, it was Chinese New Year at that time. The temple is full and everybody is praying while smoking incense. There were also lanterns lit at night.

I think there was an event when I visited since there were tables of food offerings and plenty of people praying/burning incense sticks. It was a nice experience to watch and learn.

Hi, I am changing planes on Saturday 24th September. Arriving at 05:25 Terminal 2 Taipei/TPE and flying out at 13.15pm from Terminal 1 This means I have good 5 Hours time to visit a Temple not to far from the Airport. I am a senior lady and would need an English speaking guide. What can you suggest?
