Introduction

The Lungshan Temple houses hundred of statues of Buddhist, Taoist, and Confucian deities. The temple mixes traditional Chinese siheyuan ("four-building courtyard") with palace architecture in its design. The temple is divided into front hall, main hall, rear hall, right wing and left wing. Painting of vivid creatures grace the temple walls, and stone statues of mystical creatures guard the temple grounds. The joining of wall and roof did not use any nails or braces made of metal. Covered by overtapping tiles, the temple roof is decorated with figures of dragon, phoenix and other auspicious creatures. The figures are decorated with porcelain, clay, and shards of colored glass. They represent the pinnacle of mosaic art in Taiwan. The temple has been declared a Secondary National Heritage Site.

    Beautiful temple in Taipei. I recommend going at night. The lighting is really beautiful and it is right next to a night market.

    Good place to soak up the atmosphere

    Taipei’s most famous temple was built in the first half of the 18th century and is one of the best places in the city to witness the locals worshipping, offering food and gifts to the gods and burning incense sticks. No matter what time of day you visit you can always expect it to be crowded and its location right next to a subway stop also makes it easily accessable. While there are definitely more impressive temples in the country, it is still a great place to soak up the atmosphere.

    Temple popular with the Taiwanese

    2019-09

    Visited the popular LongShan temple on a weekday morning and was surprised to see many Taiwanese elderly here to offer their thanks, pray and participated in the chants. Many people were seated around the inner court and visitors diligently respect the space. I took some time to absorbed in this peaceful atmosphere, and drew a lot (which turned out to be a lucky 🍀 fortune!).

    Worth a visit!

    We went there at 8pm on our way to the nightmarket/snack street next to it. Having seen a lot of temples so far but I found this place very nice as it has a great openness atmosphere, free entry and I highly recommend to go at night because of the beautiful lights and illuminations. It is located directly at the same called metro station.
