Had a lovely time attending this beautiful old temple, Our tour guide was so lovely and informed us so much about this temple. With so many gods to pray too, I noticed all the girls were praying to the god of cupid for good fortune in LOVE :) A must while visiting this beautiful City. Happy Travels Shannen :)

it was very easy to reach the temple as there is a MRT stop nearby. the temple is very beautifully decorated with wood carvings and iron work. i visited it during the evening when it was prayers time and it was crowded but manageable. very interesting as i managed to see the various rituals. there is also a night market...

The temple was very busy but only took 10 mins to cover. Worth a look but don't expect too much. I was a bit disappointed.

This temple was nothing special, it's overly commercialized and relative to other religous landmarks, not very interesting. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, go ahead and stick your head inside for a quick look, but don't go out of your way for it.

We stopped off at the temple during our private car tour of Taipei. The architecture of the temple it quite beautiful and the attention to detail was definitely worth the visit.

It is very crowded with worshipers during some celebration. Chinese New Year is a big no if you want to wandering around this temple as it will be very crowded. Don't make a special trip here unless you have extra time for your vacation.

Not that impressive, the Confucius and Baoan temples are better, I'd visit there instead. The Lungshan template was just average and the area seemed to be for older folks.

We started our tour of Taipei here, and it's a good introduction. The riot of colours, sound and smells is quite an assault on the senses, but in a good way. Please be restrained when taking photos, The shrines and buildings are fine, but the locals consider it very bad manners to have a lens shoved in their face !!... More

We enjoyed wandering through the small temple, which was quite crowded with worshippers. It was interesting, but don't make a special trip just to view this temple.

Taipei's hottest temple is Lungshan Temple. It has everything - dragons, fires, and bottle offerings. What are bottle offerings? It's that thing when, in accordance with Chinese tradition and culture, you offer food and drinks (such as bottled water) to your ancestors. This is a highly spiritual and cultural location. Lots of foreigners in there with DLSRs, snapping away. Taipei's... More
