Longshan temple was described as a must-see by our local friend and we're glad that we went. It's easily accessible from the metro stop and features a series of building adorned with beautiful dragons on the roof and incense bowls. The temple was packed with people praying and leaving food-based offerings - it was really fun to be an observer.

Come for the Ornate carvings and fittings in this temple. The sights and sounds of this temple are soothing, although you might want to avoid peak timings. Go late afternoon, when it's quieter. It's beautiful!

This temple is unlike any I've been to. It has a lot of energy and almost feels like a cross between a temple and a marketplace. People weave in and around corners with their incense sticks while others write fortunes on lucky paper and carefully place their offerings in the central square. Among the worshippers are the tourists who are... More

I would recommend going with a guide as there are so many items to be explained if you are not familiar with Buddhism.

This is worth seeing but not as quaint as some of the others. Neighborhood is a bit dirty and somewhat come down.

This is my first visit to any temple and I was gobsmacked at the amount of work that has gone into the architecture or the buildings and landscaping. It was beautiful!! It was interesting watching the local (and visitors) paying their respects to the various deities - how they pray with burning incense... just beware that you don't get poked... More

Just another heritage temple full with local prayers. Take metro train to long Shan Shi and follow the signboard to exit. Suggest visit time is: 30min to 1 hours.

If you see any temple in Taipei - make sure it's Longshan so you can watch the incredible, ancient rituals of their culture.

As a free attraction this is worth a look. As temples go it isn't the most elaborate I've been to however is was interesting to visit and experience locals at prayer

Been there few times already. I personally love the atmosphere of this temple. This time I explore nearby streets and found a lot of interesting places. You can spend whole day to see old part of Taipei around the temple.
