Beautiful and calm. If you are into taoism, go there. In Asia, Taoism and Buddhism are intertwine. This is such a place.

Unless you're big into temples I don't see what all the fuss is about, worth a visit if you have nothing better to do but don't go out of your way for it.

This temple is really easy to reach by MRT (metro) since there is a station right there. You cross a park full of medium-old aged chinese staying around and you can easily see the temple. Wonderful wooden carvings and a very spiritual atmosphere (only a bit broken by tour guides explaining out loud ...). You are very close to the... More

An impressive structure with artistic carved roofs and eaves. Best view in the morning around 6 am and in the late afternoon around 5 pm when the sun cast its rays on the golden decoration. The temple houses the Goddess of Mercy and many other deities. Busiest times to visit is on the 1st and 15th of each lunar month... More

I'm not a fan of temples but this is one of the five Lungshan Temple in Taiwan. It is a landmark in the Wanhua district in Taipei so I reckon I would pay it a visit. Fans of Taiwanese cinema will recognize this place as one of the locations where the movie, Monga was filmed.

It was one of the must visit sites but to an uninitiated me, it was just another temple. The local area was a bit more interesting - old streets with old buildings with shops selling herbal plants including huge aloe vera leaves.

Not sure how old this temple is but looking at the architectural and craving design this is definately OLD. This place is crowded with buddist doing their prayers. Visit? Yes.

This place is easy to go as just take train. We didn't spend much time there. Probably max one hour. A lot of locals and tourists. It is famous temple in Taipei. Love to see local culture and tradition there. Can visit this place if you have spare time.

We were really lucky to visit when a service was taking place. It was a moving experience to witness all the people praying and singing, though I wondered if we weren't disruptive as tourists going around and taking pictures. The temple itself is small, but lovely. We had come from Japan, where the temples are typically plainer and so we... More
