Though built in 1730s it does not look old but looks peaceful and makes you pray for something. Just follow the small crowd in praying. Close to a MRT.

The temple is pretty old and one of the most beautiful I visited in my life (and I've seen a lot of temples). Around the temple there is also a nice night market.

Just one station after Ximen MRT, drop off at Longshan MRT and take some steps out of the Exit. The temple attracts a lot of locals and foreigners. The design and its name proves.

Hi, I am changing planes on Saturday 24th September. Arriving at 05:25 Terminal 2 Taipei/TPE and flying out at 13.15pm from Terminal 1 This means I have good 5 Hours time to visit a Temple not to far from the Airport. I am a senior lady and would need an English speaking guide. What can you suggest?
