It is one of the oldest and largest Buddhist temples of Taipei. It is always crowded with locals and tourists. The temple is comprised of front hall, main hall, rear hall, right wing and left wing. It is easily accessible by MRT. One can have good look at Taiwanese cultural beliefs.

This is one of the best temples I visited. The temple is example of Taiwanese classical architecture. Yo get to know a lot about the rituals and beliefs of local people.

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!

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 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.
