Lungshan Temple 艋舺龍山寺

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.

    Great at night


    The reason why I recommend this place at night is because the night market is just next to it. Also night lighting allows better pictures and it’s a great place to finish your tour!

    Visit to temple


    Many Taoist gods to pray to. Would be beneficial to foreigners if there are more English descriptions but it might probably dilute the Chinese culture in this holy site. Would still be a good place to visit when finding the place of worship.

    Very old temple in Taiwan


    This is one of the oldest Chinese temple in Taiwan . Located in the busy city and Hua Xi night market . Many pilgrims come here to pray for wealth, study, sickness, marriage and career. Packed during the weekend and you allow to bring one joystick to pray thru out the Temple for cleaner air and less wastage.. make sense . Lots of tourist and very accessible by train at Longsan temple station right opposite. Lungshan Temple of Manka is a Chinese folk religious temple in Wanhua District, Taipei, Taiwan. The temple was built in Taipei in 1738 by settlers from Fujian during Qing rule in honor of Guanyin.

    After 3 months travel on SE Asia it is interesting seeing Taiwan temples They are a cross between Indian Hindu temples and Buddha temples Longshan was busy but not heaving. A bit rough around the edges but felt authentic. Found ourselves there just as a service started and all the locals stopped and participated There are some very interesting details around eg the water features in the outer courtyard Also some leaflets and boards in english which were very useful

    A must visit temple for Taiwan trip


    Came during the last day of my Taiwan trip. It was packed no matter what time you come over as it is claimed that this temple is a must visit place as it usually grants wishes of those prayers. Whoever are looking for a better change in their lives, can give it a try here.
