The location is more than perfect. Right outside the metro station, this temple seemed like a benign structure from outside. Wait till you step in. You'll be greeted by a waterfall, incense and lots of colour. The place is great for architecture lovers. The temple is a tourist hotspot, so don't expect a quiet time to pray.

We visited during Chinese New Year and it was very crowded. No-one seemed to mind that I was not there to worship - just a foreign visitor observing and taking a few photos. It's worth a visit as a tourist and there are other places of interest nearby - particularly shopping and eating.

We prayed hear years ago to the God of fertility (I think that's what they were called) for children. It seemed only fitting to bring our kids back with us to the temple this time. They loved walking around and seeing the temple as well as looking at the fish in the ponds. It's a great temple for pray or... More

Honestly, if not for my pious mother, we would have passed on entering the temple. It was the first day of Chinese New Year, so being unfamiliar with the Taiwanese traditions, we visited not expecting the swarms of people that were actually there. Once there, we walked around the massive compounds admiring the architecture and attention to detail. Temples in... More

It's not a big temple, but it is very crowded, especially during festive seasons, like the Lunar New Year. Visitors like to toss the "Jiao" and draw lots to tell their fortunes, so expect the front part of the temple and counters explaining the lots to be congested.

We were here by Dec 2015. This is a famous temple among the local, 100 years old history, as I know. Can easy access by subway, Longshan station. A small temple took about 30min for visiting.

Easily accessed through MRT. The temple is nice not very big, it seems to be ok to take photos without interfering the worshippers.

This is a famous and major temple area in Taipei. Will it leave your jaw agape? Nah. But it is a cool temple with a good vibe and the shops around are very interesting.
