I visit Taiwan every year around the time of the Lunar New Year. Longshan Temple is one of the first places I visit. If you can, visit around the Lantern Festival (the 15th Day of the First Moon). The Lanterns are some of the best that you will see.

Nice place but you don't need more than an hour to walk around. Buy some joss stick and offerings then head out to get food.

Through the incense smoke I could hear beautiful singing which added a mystical atmosphere as devotes made offerings and prayers. The most wonderfully bizarre decoration (to Western eyes) adorns every panel and the rooves are a riot of colourful... More

Just another Chinese temple. Probably because I have seen many Chinese temples in my life living in Singapore. Good temple to check out for those who have not really seen Chinese temples. A nice water feature inside for you to check out. The park nearby has elderly men playing chess, etc. Tip: Nice small eateries around the corner. Near the... More

Because it was the end of the Chinese New Year, there was lot going on at this temple, especially as it was the weekend as well. It is easy to find, and very interesting
