The area
Neighborhood: Luzhou / Sanchong District
There are many temples surrounding Luzhou district. Baoyo Temple is a wooden temple built during the early establishment of Luzhou. The annual Royal Chifuwangye tour and blessing activity are alive and boisterous with drums, while the Yonglian Temple worships the venerable South Sea Guanyin Buddha. It began as a modest monk house which grew into the resplendence of today. If you enjoy visiting relics, do not miss the Luzhou Li Family Historical House. Preserved in the century-old residence are many precious artifacts. In addition, the oldest market in Luzhou dating back a hundred years, the Luzhou temple night market boasts traditional family recipes worthy of taste. As for Sanchong district, it is filled with sports and leisure parks such as picture and check-in hotspot- Happy Waterpark, the wide-spanning city green land- Taipei Metropolitan Park are both places to go for leisure. The vintage atmosphere of the Sanchong air force first village takes a peek at the time of dependant’s village. The vibrant Chongshin Bridge tourism market and Sanhe Night Market are best choices for seeking out various daily necessities and enjoying great food.

Over built
Nov 2019
I grew up in this town before I moved to the US. When I was a kid, the temple was so very simple and small. However, over the years, i saw more and more constructions around the temple and more "Gods" moved into the temples. I still prefer that the temple stay the way it was -- not a lot of money but a good place for people to reflect.
The temple has a lot of art works that are nice though.

Beautiful & ornate

I visited the temple in the evening while at the Luzhou night market. It is beautiful and the smell of the incense in the air is something I will always remember.

Lots of details, but do temples need to be built like this?
Nov 2018 • Solo
I grew up in this township and have witnessed this temple starting from a small one, with more of a peasant exterior, expanding to its current scale. Though the nice decorations appeals to the eyes, I would prefer that the money used for the "nice-to-have" decorations and such actually goes to the poor and those in need.

I personally do not make monetary contributions here.

Multi-Level Temple
Jan 2018 • Solo
Located in the middle of a busy street market, this temple is a bit off the ‘tourist’ route. In fact, unless you are looking to see as many temples as possible in Taipei, you probably won’t come out this way. If, however, you make the effort, you will be rewarded. The temple is quite large considering it sits in the heart of a residential neighborhood - not to mention surrounded by a traditional street market. Yonglian Temple possesses all of the familiar and wonderful aspects of Taiwanese temples - brightly painted interior and exterior, intricate wood carvings, numerous prayer rooms featuring dramatic religious figures, etc. One of the highlights here are the multi-levels. From the top, you can look out onto the chaotic market street scene below as well as peer inside several areas of the temple. To get here, take the MRT to the Sanmin Senior High School stop and follow the signs to the temple - a five minute walk (with lots of places to eat delicious Taiwanese snacks along the way).

SUPERB TEMPLE WITH LOCAL FLAVOUR MORNING-NIGHT MARKETS
Dec 2017 • Couples
We stayed near St Ignatius Subway station which is a 10 min walk from this temple. This is not a tourist infested area, come and see the locals, in the morning the streets surrounding. leading to, the temple turned into a wet markets and morning food stalls. Great occasion to discover many local delicacies and see a magnificent temple inside and outside. You ll notice the locals coming to pray at the temple. Here many stalls offer samples so you can taste before buying. In the evening the morning fruits and vegetables give way to the typical night market with a wide array of stalls offering foods, cloths, souvenirs, etc. On the street beside the temple we had excellent curry noodle and spicy noodle bowls, Here the bowls are huge compared to normal Taipei bowls, my friend could not eat all. Extremely friendly people, willing to help.. Thanks.
