A little bit away out of the main touristy area, this is a beautiful temple to visit both during the day and night.

I think there are two Long Shan temples in Taiwan. One is at Taipei and this is at Lugang. This is older and impressive nevertheless. The building has a very elegant feel. You feel at peace here. Old trees, nice decorative ceilings. Really nice.

There are many Taoist temples in Taiwan, but Buddhist temples are maybe less. Longshan temple is an authentic Buddhist temple, which is among the important national ancient cultural sites. The entrance is free. The ceiling of the gate is remarkable.

The expansive 10,000sq. meter complex includes impressive entrance gates, large halls featuring exquisitely carved stone dragons, beautifully crafted wood latticework and brightly painted beams and walls. There is an interesting exhibit (in English and Chinese) that details...More

I enjoyed my visit here, but it was less impressive than I had expected (after reading about it in guidebooks). I had made a special visit to Lukang to see the temple, and was a little disappointed. It's old, certainly, and I would certainly go...More
