Appearance of the temple is very old and rustic with lots of intricate detailing. Nice place to visit even if you're not religious, but keep in mind a lot of people come here to pray, so be respectful of that whilst trying to take your selfie.

Longshan Temple was on my short list to visit while in Taipei and I made the right decision . It was crowded but manageable . Locals are lighting a lot of incense which could cause problems for some people . Locals are also praying so best to be respectful. You definitely feel the spirituality of this temple . I appreciate... More

Spend 30 minutes here then go to the adjacent market and mall (previously known as snake alley). Market comes to life in the evening whereas the temple is open all day. A worthwhile visit and it has a subway station right by it.

There are many temples on Taiwan or even in Taipei itself but if you visit Taipei then Longshan temple is a must. It's the top 3 temples in town and the day I went, they had a celebration so it was very crowded with locals and tourists alike but it was an experience, my husband is a Buddhist so he... More

The temple building itself is very mesmerizing. The floor, ceilings, roofs, is very detailed. And just by watching people praying and giving gifts to the gods is unique and makes me feel educated with their tradition. An awesome place.

Stopped by this temple while sightseeing in Taipei. Gorgeous details, many devotees offering up gifts and prayers, and large enough to wander around for at least 30 minutes. Centrally located right off the metro, a great stop on any sightseeing visit!

We went on a Saturday and the crowds were huge. But all good as they are praying and you get to soak in the atmosphere and the incense.

It has many very beautiful temples with typical boat-like structures. Being close to the Chinese New Year, the crowds were large ( for Taiwan ! not India ) ! but they prayed silently and quickly. It's like a beautiful, old time temple in modern Taipei. Do visit.
