This beautiful temple offers prayers to 7 gods and is always crowded, when i went during chinese new year, it was very crowded. even though it was crowded, the chanting and humming creates a sort of a relaxing atmosphere.

I followed my Taiwanese friend and family to the temple on day one of Chinese new year. It seemed to be must-go on this special day. Very crowded but great atmosphere: locals praying sincerely for a good year ahead while tourists like me busy with taking pictures. Walking under the giant animal of the year lantern is also one popular... More

Beautiful temple. We visited at Chinese New Year so it was extremely busy, but I think that made it even more interesting to visit.

My wife and I visited many temples in Taipei - starting with this one. Getting off the subway (Lungshan stop) and walking out into the square near it, there was a reek of urine and cigarettes; a lot of (harmless and actually a little friendly) homeless people stay near Longshan. That odor was soon replaced by incense coming from the... More

We visited here on a cruise ship stop at the end of a day touring. I did not feel like getting off the bus another time to see just another temple. I am SO glad that I did! in the late afternoon, there were so many people there chanting and the sound of it just lifted me away. We walked... More

With the divine and tranquil air this is definitely a place in Taipei where you could get yourself a little calm air to leave behind all the exhaustion and restlessness. The atmosphere is peaceful and divine. Get down at the temple station (lungshan) to get here. The architecture and the temple itself is beautifully made and the ornate adornment adds... More

Just a short walk from the Longshan Temple Metro stop, you will smell the delicious incense as you approach the building and the delicate chanting of the worshippers. The temple is highly decorated with ornate cornices and brilliant colors. Expect crowds from midday onward - it's probably the most famous of all Taipei's temples.

Join in the noise and bustle of a very active devotional temple. Never boring. If you only visit one site this should be it. Go around 4-5 in the evening and catch evening service. Than take MRT to 101 to catch the sun set!
