I have been to many temples in Asia, this is by far one of my favorites. Architecturally it is interesting and also appears to have an active religious life. If you go around 2:30/3pm you might be lucky to be there for afternoon prayers!

We really enjoyed this temple. It was my first one and I found it very interesting to see the offerings on display. The architecture is lovely, too. It seemed welcoming to tourist and takes about 20 minutes to see unless you are taking a lot...More

Beautiful temple but can get very busy. The temple itself is gorgeous, with the intricate designs (dragons!) that I'd come to expect of Taoist temples. The temple grounds are quite the sight, with large statues by the entrance, mini waterfalls to the right of the...More

Visited on a weekend, so it was very crowded. And it was a hot day. With young kids, so not much time to understand and appreciate the temple. Nevertheless, it is beautiful and worth a visit.

Right across from the MRT exit, Blue line. Praying temple. Many people with shorts, so it doesn't appear to be policed with dress code. I think it's more out of respect that you don't wear shorts. You can have 1 incense stick for free to...More

We visited in the evening. The temple is easy to reach on the MRT. The temple was busy with activity, and I was amazed by the craftsmanship. There also is a nearby night market, which I enjoyed.

Longshan is one of Taipei's busiest temples if not the busiest one. We stopped there twice and on both occasions there were a lot of people so don't expect to find a quiet serene temple like many of the others in Taipei. As you enter...More
