Lungshan Temple 艋舺龍山寺

Anchor point
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 the heart of the city!


    Beautiful temple but as other reviews have said, rather crowded. The details of artwork and sculptures in the building architecture are stunning. The temple is directly across from the metro exit so it is very easy to locate. Make sure to take some time and visit the multiple nearby night markets in the area (only a couple streets over)!

    awesome place.


    Definitely, the best temple to visit in Taipei. Just because it is much more happening than the others. there are many ceremonies going on and you could learn about them through electronic interactive displays. It can be easily reached via the Longshan MRT station. They sell lots of fresh flowers around the temple.

    I have been here a few times and it has always been busy, a lot of locals worshipping. I spent only a few minutes here.

    Another Chinese Temple


    Same same as all Chinese Temples. When you have seen one you have seen them all. Nothing different. Extremely busy when we went.

    Awesome Cultural Expression of Belief!


    Our guide Claire from My Taiwan Travels took us to experience a local temple and see how people of Taiwan practice their spiritual guidance. It was truly a beautiful building and grounds and the atmosphere really set the tone for what to expect and experience inside the temple area for prayer and offerings. A must see in the city.
