I walked around this lovely temple on a walking tour. So was good to learn about this lively old temple with so many people coming into pray. There is the train station opposite and markets and red light district nearby so it's a busy area!

A real beautiful temple, with great decoration on its front entrance. After we visited it we walked around the streets nearby, and saw an area where they prepare massive amount of food for the monks, which was also a nice thing to watch.

Yes, there are 2-3 a few blocks from Longshan Temple on the left, right, and behind. Can't remember their names, but one of them is the famous 'Snake Alley' night market.
