Was not aware this was done, but this temple is for the worship of three diets, buda, tao and confusius. Beautiful gifts of flowers and food fill the tables before the alters. The incense, sights and sounds were memorable.

Having walked from Di hua Jie all through the districts to reach Long Shan Temple, I was pleasantly surprised with the large temple. People at temples are much more respectful and quiet than those you find in Mainland China. Its got many rooms for you to walk around and peer into. Right nearby is a great lunch spot for Mee...

A must see attraction of Taipei. Longshan temple is a small yet beautiful temple with some stunning architecture. It can get crowded but this adds to the appeal in many ways as it's a good place to see locals attending their worship. It is in a good location to access Snake Alley too.

I quite liked the longshan temple. Budding with tourists but gives you the space for your prayers. You can see the rituals , have a sea salt coffee in the market near by and also enjoy some street performances. I recommend this for trip to Taipei.

I wish that i'm here with local guide. It would be better to know more how do they build and any story behind else it would be just beautiful Chinese temple. It's the oldest chinese temple in taipei!!

Wasn't expecting much from this place but there was a fantastic energy I couldn't describe. I loved how it was a living temple and Taiwanese in work clothes, casual clothes and everything were there praying before going to work. Definitely the best temple I went to in Taipei!

It is a little confusing because it's listed as a must see attraction, and its a beautiful temple but it's really small and no sign so getting out the metro station you walk along some market style shops, then you go up the escalator and get to a busy street, crossing this street there is this small temple, this is...

I went with several questions for Gwangyin Pusa. Watching the locals there believing so passionately and respectful to all is meaningful. If you are foreigner, please go and watch, listen and read. Notice the gifts of flowers, food, toys, clothes (all new) from people giving thanks for providing guidance, peace, calm, good things to remember...
