Although this temple is smaller than I expected it is non the less very beautiful. The people there are very welcoming to tourists. When I arrived a gentleman handed me a brochure and explained some of the history. It's very easy to get to, only a short 5 min walk from the MIT station. Well worth a visit.

The temple features local deities. Check out the temple shop. My friend bought a clay figurine of a monk in blissful meditation. If the pineapple seller is still plying his business from a van outside the temple, have a pineapple peeled for you right there. It is so sweet and tasty that you might consider buying another to bring back... More

Stop by at the temple because it was suppose one of the most visited temple in Taipei. Honestly it's one of the most well preserved temple I've seen. It looks like I've travel back in time. Every structure of the temple looks so well preserved. Came here in the evening when prayers was going on. I was surprise to see... More

This temple can get crowded with tourists, but if you have time to see only 1 temple in Taipei, make it this one. Free admission.

The peace and love you feel when you enter if you allow yourself to just breath! We saw monks praying and everyone there welcomed us, even when it was apparent we knew nothing. We acted respectful to what was going on and we were welcomed

It's a beautiful temple, very interesting atmosphere and esp when it's busy in the evenings, it's great to just sit down for a bit on the side and observe.

Just one block from the metro station. I wanted to visit a temple and this was an easy journey. It is old and was somewhat crowded. It gave me the sight that I wanted to see. It is in a busy area and a bit rough on the edges.

Longshan Temple is amazing. I like the waterfalls on the right corner of the structure. Temple is open from 6am until 10pm. I like the location as it near the night market bargain shops.
