The art, architecture, the peaceful atmosphere, the scent of incense, the people, the sounds, the night market adjacent to the temple.... Just go.

This temple has crowds of people praying and delivering offerings. It's close to the main station and the Metro takes you right near the main entrance.

We didn't spend too long there as it doesn't need to. We went by night and the light did put the beautiful buildings in a nice perspective. I witnessed different prayer custom that I would normally see in mainland china so that was interesting. Go there after your visit of Huaxi Rd night market, it's just next door.

The MRT is just opposite to the temple. It is cheap and easy to access via MRT. The building is colorful, lots of locals praying as well as tourists visiting. There is nothing really spectacular. In the underground on your way in or out of the MRT, there is a huge selection of fortune tellers,massage op's and small shops.

Been to many other temples in Asia, I find Lungshan is just another temple. Went there in the morning before 10am, the underground shops were not opened.
