The temple is beautiful with a little waterfall at one end. Despite the number of worshippers during the evening, it had a calming effect on us. One of the temple officials approached us and provided us a brochure about the temple and even helped us to take a group photo.

The Longshan temple is one of my favorites temples in Asia. It is in the middle of the city of Taipei, and it is like a portion of heaven in earth. Very spiritual ans special place.

This is one of many temples in Taipei, but it is also one of the largest and most scenic of all. I happened upon it on a rainy day and spent a couple of hours admiring the architecture and carvings as well as the ever abundant flow of tourists and worshippers who meld easily together in the large temple.

It's a nice temple. Very peaceful and filled with devotees who offer their prayers. It has Buddha and mainly their God of the sea which is a favorite among them as Taiwan is an island and many people came here by sea

This temple was absolutely beautiful. We couldn't get over all of the beautiful flowers around. It is definitely very picturesque. There were many people giving their offerings on the day we were there.

Although I went during a regular weekday morning it was already packed with worshippers. The devotions of these worshippers were palpable. Nuns can be seen sitting In the corners or sides with their prayer beads. Smoke from burning candles and joss sticks permeated and polluted the air making the unaccustomed like myself wanting to leave just so to breathe. The... More
