The Red colored temple with beautiful Chinese dragon sculptures and Chinese Gods is very impressive which shows the roots of their culture. The only thing which was quite strange for me (may be because I am an Indian and we go inside temple without shoes or any footwear) I saw almost people were wearing shoes inside the temple and even...

Come to see the crowds, come to get blessed, come to enjoy the rich cultural vibe that takes place here. Not as much incense burning as before, as eco-friendly rules are now in place. But Lungshan is a place you MUST see! Convenient location, easily accessible.

I took a quick stroll through this temple after my visit to Snake Alley. I was pleasantly surprised by how many local people were burning incense and making offerings to the gods. The temple has good public restroom facilities and a beautiful waterfall/fountain in the front entrance. Incredibly accessible by MRT.

It's a beautiful temple in the center of the city but I get lost after get off the MRT. It's quite far from MRT but worth to see. Beautiful, valuable, faithfulness can be found there.

Our tour guide from My Taiwan Tours took us here and explained the meaning of the entrances (dragon and tiger) as well as the temple's rich history, especially during World War 2. We were told about the different gods to which people prayed depending on their needs as well as how to interpret ancient rituals. Please remember to step over... More

I will recommend visit two temples in Taipei if the time is limited. One is Lungshan Temple which is crowded with local people and tourists all the time. Second one is, either Dalongdong Baoan Temple or Master Hsuan Kung Temple. These two temples with less tourists but are religious central in the area. Both are historical structure.
