Really nothing more special other than it's a big temple with lots of visitors. It could be the fact I've been taken to numerous temples since my youth and don't really find this one special. But if you rarely see a Buddhist Temple this will be a good place to visit.

If you are into traditional architecture and art you'll love Longshan temple. A bit smaller than I had expected but beautiful nonetheless. The pillars are exquisite. So are the dragons on the roof. The waterfall is also quite lovely and the koy are huuuge!

Visiting this place gave me an insight into Taiwan's religious side. Even from afar, you can see that this place is teeming with worshippers. Have a look inside and just be careful not to be too close to worshippers and be discreet and don't use flash when taking photos. I recommend going in the morning and then take your breakfast...

It's a pretty cool temple that is heavily used by the locals, so it gives it a nice energy that a lot of temples don't have. It's still a temple, so it's only good for a minute visit at the most, but it's a nice stop if you pass by.

This temple is an interesting place to go to because of its history and intricate architectural details. If you love taking photos, this is the spot to definitely bring your camera.

A huge temple within walking distance from the station. There is quite a number of deity in the temple and it is quite crowded in the premises. On the left side of temple, there is a section for public to purchase of their amulets for various purpose for selection.

We visited around noon and it was packed with people and so much activity. People were offering food and singing. Other temples I have been to has been much quieter. The temple itself is very nice. If you are interested in temples I suggest you visit this one.

艋舺龍山寺,也稱萬華龍山寺或臺北龍山寺,簡稱龍山寺,位於臺灣臺北市萬華,是中華民國直轄市定古蹟,也是旅遊宗教勝地。 在台北最推薦的廟宇, 交通方便, 搭乘MRT在龍山寺捷運站可達 the most beautiful traditional buddhist Temple in Taipei, where is next to Ximending shopping area.
