I have traveled in a number of Asian countries but this was the first temple I visited dedicated to Quan Yin. The state of the female Buddha was truly beautiful.

Unlike the other two temples we visited in TaiPei, Lungshan Temple has a large number of people who are there for actual religious observations...it's very crowded on a Sunday afternoon, but beautiful. The incense was VERY intense - you may want to be cautious if you are sensitive.

The temple is beautiful to visit and it is a calm and serene place to visit. It is well connected through the MRT network so easy to reach even if you do not know how to speak Mandarin.

I've been fortunate to see temples in most asian countries including china so this one was pleasant but really just another temple.

As a Buddhist it was a had to go Temple. Certainly Culturally beautiful very different from other Buddhist temples around the world. Very Busy During Buddhist ceremonies and special occasions. Incense smoke and the burning of various Buddhist items fill the air of these devoted followers of Taiwanese Buddhism. Amazing sight to behold.

Nice structure and very crowded. Easy to find and access by MRT (just opposite the Longshan Temple MRT stop). The best part is you can visit the bustling night market around the temple. The night markets have many good local food. There are also some specialties (e.g. snake meal) for those more daring.

A bit crowded though. Very picturesque at night. Worth to see on a holy day which is Saturday. Great atmosphere. But chose the time when less visitors.

Beautiful architecture and great work of art I would say. I would recommend visitors to visit the place around 4pm and by the time when you finish the tour of the temple. You can visit the night market. The temple itself also looks great in the night when the lights are up.

This buddist temple is a must see. It is very beautiful! It is an easy walk from the metro stop. The park across is a nice place to relax and people watch.

This place was bustling. Right in the middle of the busy city sits this 17th (?) century Temple. The architecture is beautiful. I am told that this kind of temple is difficult to find on the mainland because of the Cultural Revolution. We felt an almost mystical sense of the history and spirituality here. The roof carvings are exquisite. Crowded... More
