Lovely temple

Lovely peaceful temple, despite being crowded with many devotees as well as tourists at the weekend, but well worth visiting. Great for photographers, too.

It is easily accessible via Lungshan Si Metro Station and the temple is just right in front of the metro station. The renowned old temple was built more than 200 years and you could see here the beliefs of the locals including the Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy, Buddhist, etc. I could see the influence of the Buddhism, Taoism and...

It is easy access by train, stop at long shan si station. Go early to avoid crowd and heat. Good photographs opportunity. Old temple and can see impressive crafting on the wall and the building. No entrance fee.

Nice mixed budhist-tao temple just a very short walk from the MRT station. The temple is more interesting at night as the candles and lights give a special atmosphere. Go to snake-alley afterwards (night-market) which is just across the street.

Lungshan Temple is an amazing temple to visit. Take your time to walk around the whole temple and take in the place. Truly beautiful. Be mindful that this temple is still used by devotees, so be respectful of the codes of conduct. Can get crowded on the weekends, so if you have the opportunity go on a week day.

An absolutely great temple to visit while you are in Taiwan. It's a functioning temple that is extremely picturesque where you can take lots of images of patrons performing all types of rituals. There are quite a few tourists but there were a lot more people doing serious religious rituals. No one minded photos and everyone was very businesslike. Highly... More

We visited the temple in the evening with lights up. It's a beautiful temple with many sincere devotees from all parts of the world. It is conveniently located near Longshan Temple MRT station.

This is an old temple. Its worth the trip. Its also by a night market a few blocks away for some surprisingly good eats in an unexpected area. There are many trasiant and homeless around here. Never had any problems but if your the sensitive type may wish to avoid at night. Also beware working girls are legal in this... More

Got a taxi here to view this very predictable temple . Seen much better in other cities and the new structures pushed right up to the old temple walls are a disgrace. The whole surrounding area needs cleaning up . Very disappointing
