The temple is adorned in wonderful carvings and paintings. It is also an extremely peaceful place where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of Taipei...that is until a plane passes overhead. Easy to get to from the MRT and well worth a...More

We came here on our final day, and nearly didn't because we were worried we may be 'templed out'. I should not have been concerned because this was a real highlight. Beautiful buildings in a peaceful area. Combined with the nearby Confucius temple, you can...More

This place is almost magical. Definitely worth a visit if you have the time. It's best to go during off-peak hours to avoid the crowd.

I visited three temples in Taipei (Paoan, Confucius and Longshan). Paoan and Longshan are similar in layout, size, architecture, and artifacts. Confucius is bigger. Paoan and Confucius are located almost next to each other and within a short walk from the Yuanshan Station (R14). My...More

This temple was my favorite of the ones we saw in Taipei. It has a very interesting garden across from it with a dragon fountain and several statues. The temple itself was very lovely and decorated in intricate detail. There were hardly any people there...More

I really loved both the courtyard (actually across an alley from temple) and the temple, although completely different in style. The courtyard had four or so waterfalls, in a complex system of old bridges and rocks made of stone that children would love to crawl...More

I'll be honest, after a couple of temples, they all start looking the same. This is a large one though, but hot. It's nearby the Confucius Temple, which was more unique. We came upon this Paoan Temple after visiting the Confucius Temple.

There are some accommodations close to this place but I must say i never tried them. There is metro station ( red line) Yuanshan aprox. 500 meters from the temple and also the bus stop like 200 meters from there.
