For us Westeners it takes a while to understand the way of paying. I was told that in any temple you will find your GOD to pray to. So go there not as a tourist and do your prayers. At the same time you may admire the beauty of the building or immerse in the shops around and breathe just... More

If you are into learning local cultures. Longshan Temple is a must see then. There are three big famous temples in Taipei area and Lung Shan Temple is one of them.

Great temple to visit. Not really designed for tourists as locals heavily use it, but very accepting of tourists nonetheless. Sit inside the courtyard and soak up the atmosphere.

I went there for prayers just like any other temple, it's almost the same as other temple just that it's a bit crowded, but still can go:)

Ancient temple in Bungka old estate area. Lots of followers and old shops in surrounding the temple. Worth a visit in the day!

Just like any other temple and it's quite small. Less than 10 minutes exploring and you'd be done. It's located right next to the station. There must be a better temple to visit in Taiwan and this isn't it.

I return to this temple (and the surrounding neighborhood, which includes two other beatiful old temples) every year. Each time I return I am struck by the detail and the beauty of the construction.
