I was only here about 20 mins walking around and taking a few photos. It is a very lovely looking temple with some really lovely statues and decorations including some panels on the door etc. I wanted to see a bit of the Taiwan culture (as so much of it is Westernised buildings and malls etc) and was recommended this...

People are doing there weird fortune telling stuff in the temple which is amazing. The surrounding area is full of old prostitutes, it's where the old folks go to get some loving. Also entertaining

This is a really good temple. I've been to plenty and they kind of look the same, but this one is distinctive. I'm not even into Buddhism and it's still cool.

Longshan temple is one of the first temple built by immigrants from China in 250 years ago. So this is a proof of the relation between Taiwanese and Chinese, for the past 500 years. Most major temples in Taiwan, are always facing water (rivers, ocean...etc), because most of Taiwanese are moving from China, by boats. It was quite danger during... More

This is the BIG TOURISTY temple in Taiwan. It is a great intro to Buddhism. It definitely stands out from many of the other major temples I have seen in China and Korea.

The Longshan Temple is one, if not the most, of the popular temples in Taipei. It has a lot of "altars" for your specific requests, as describe by our tour guide. Remember to enter through the right-most door, and exit is usually at the left-most door. No explanation :p The middle door is used by the "gods".

It is worth to go there to see the historical temple in Taipei with families since there are not many historical scene to see there, it would become a good choice.

It is a very interesting temple with various deities, including mazu. You can choose a stick in front with a number to tell your fortune. There is only Chinese and Japanese explanation. Many people around praying for their own wishes. Worth a one or two hour visit.
