Like most places around the world when one place is rated the top local attraction, it turns out to be totally hyped up. That is the case with Longshan Temple as well.

This is a beautiful and atmospheric temple and a good place to begin to understand the customs and rituals involved. Unfortunately, it rained very heavily during my visit and it was really crowded with tourists as well as people worshipping so it would be better to visit at a quieter time. But definitely not to be missed and there was... More

The neighborhood made me feel like I needed to be a little more guarded but as a solo female traveler I tried to stay within the busy areas. There's a small market across the street... More

You should visit the temple to wish for a good trip. The atmosphere there is very peaceful when people worship in silence.

A beautiful and old temple. Despite tge crowds it was atmospheric and authentic. I recommend going at night for a beautiful feel and for less tourists. Lovely.

Beautiful temple buildings, many people doing what they need to do, space to observe and respect. Worth a visit, right across the street from MRT station easy to get to.

Decorative and cultural experience. Easy to get to as the metro is called longshan temple. This temple has a number of gods which can be worshiped in side halls but is dedicated to the bodhisattava of mercy.
