I went Sunday morning just to see what has to be one of the nicest places I have ever seen in the middle of a city, very calm and quiet, even though it was teeming with people it was strangely calmimg

This temple is not to be missed. An easy stroll from the MRT station and a place of welcome calm and serenity despite a constant stream of worshipers. I was fortunate to hit a time when the "congregation" were intoning their ancient chants (+ gong and drum) led by ancient robed ladies in front of the main altar area -... More

Eastern religion will forever be a mystery to me, a Westerner. However, the quiet and the calm of the Taiwanese people must come from somewhere good, so it is to be respected. Let your eyes feast on all the beauty and observe the respectful Taiwanese. Take a lesson from them.

We arrived about 6pm and the place was full of people and really buzzing with atmosphere. There is no entry fee to this temple and is worth a visit even if your not into Buddhism. The colours, detail and atmosphere make it worth your while. Just be careful there is a lot of insense burning and it can become quite... More

You can just train to LongShan Temple Station (龙山寺站) & follow the sign stating LongShan Temple which is around 5-8 mins walk. You can shop and walk which is along the way, the feeling of this place is like chinatown where they sell stuffs for older people and clothes are not that fashion for youngsters, there is even shops where...

Very interesting and an opportunity to see one of the oldest temples in the city, still in use. Lots of incense being burned and very busy with worshippers.

Beautiful and calm. If you are into taoism, go there. In Asia, Taoism and Buddhism are intertwine. This is such a place.

Unless you're big into temples I don't see what all the fuss is about, worth a visit if you have nothing better to do but don't go out of your way for it.

This temple is really easy to reach by MRT (metro) since there is a station right there. You cross a park full of medium-old aged chinese staying around and you can easily see the temple. Wonderful wooden carvings and a very spiritual atmosphere (only a bit broken by tour guides explaining out loud ...). You are very close to the... More
