Well worth a visit, it was such a nice pretty place - got some great photos. Good to see something old still in the city.

We caught the MRT to Longshan station. Easy walk to the temple which has a lovely entrance and pond. We were lucky to see it on a day when a ceremony was taking place. Very busy and colourful. Listening to all the people sing their chants was special. Well worth the visit

Longshan Temple is worth a visit. Beautiful temple with accessible location, right outside Longshan MRT. When we came on a weekday morning, it wasn't too crowded. There's a sense of calmness and "divinity" as you see the people offering and praying. My friends and I just had to buy some lucky charms :) A short walk from the temple is... More

The Lungshan Temple is certainly worth a visit. There are great streets nearby to visit, walk down and take pictures and the temple has great meaning (that mostly you would only know if you go with a guide). The whole area is worth a visit and stopping into the temple to walk around and praying to any god that can... More

I visited the temple just before it closes. At night there were lesser people. Buy the joss sticks (comes in a pack of 7) and go from the right side of the temple. There are 7 ash urns so you can place your joss sticks at the different urns. There are clear labels to indicate which deities you are praying... More

每次去龍山寺都會覺得心裡很平靜 聽說月老很靈驗,而我跟未婚夫也親身體驗到月老有多神 所以我們有心事都會跑去跟菩薩說喲! 祈求能保佑我們大家平安順遂 拜拜完之後總是會去旁邊的夜市吃完飯才算ENDING咧! I feel peaceful while we were there every time. The Chinese Cupid is really efficacious, me and my fiancé all think so. We also visit the night market next to the temple before going home.

This is very nice and peaceful place but you have to visit it in the morning and on weekday. The best way to get there use MRT and then short walk.

This is a very nice temple, although it was very crowded when we went there in mid afternoon. You can observe the rituals and if you so desire burn an incense stick yourself. Taipei does not have many tourist attractions per se, but I would include this in a trip there. Close to MRT.

The temple is one of the oldest around and kept in a very good condition. The temple is easy to get to by subway, def worth a visit. Also a corner within the temple of free books which you can take.
