very crowded on a Sunday morning

I very much enjoyed visiting this temple, even though it was very crowded on the Sunday morning I was there.

If you are interested in traditional Chinese/ Taiwanese belief, living and culture, you must visit Long Shan Temple and its neighborhood. It's not as large and magnificent as the other Long Shan Temple in Lugang, but it's so exquisite and vigorous, still worth your whole afternoon taking photos or feeling the attitude of devotion. You can also find delicious local... More

Should you go to this temple, do not think of shopping there, no malls at all. Expect some crowds at the temple & you can see more of the old people there.

If you're not Chinese, you owe it to yourself to learn some things about the temple BEFORE you go. It would be too easy to miss out. For example, the great incense burner in front has little figurines holding up the top. They are Dutchmen, "punished" here for their part in Taiwanese history. This is not to mention the complex...

This is a nice temple, easy to access via MRT. Details are amazing, must have taken a long time to finish the temple. Beautiful coloring. I am always amazed by the details and the amount of details of these kind of buildings. Worth a visit.

It is a well-known tourist attraction. It is worth visiting even if you are not a buddhist. The building though old, is magnificant. There are food stalls nearby where u can grab a bite. Do not miss the famous Huaxi Night market, also known as Snake Alley. But fret not, the snakes are all in the bottles, mixed with chinese... More
