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.

    It is a religious place and to respect the devotees, Gods the same way you respect on our individual religions and faith I would recommend to wear decent clothes no "shorts shorts". Recommended to visit this temple in the morning if want to experience their chanting, prayers and singing etc. It was a relief and kind of relaxing hearing the devotees chanting and singing, although I don't understand Chinese.

    Loved Longshan Temple. Even though it was crowded it was very serene. One of my favorite things in Taipei. Stayed about 30 minutes.

    Another Temple to Visit

    2019-03

    We had a short stroll around the Longshan Temple on two occasions 30/03/19 & 07/04/19. A vibrant temple attracting many locals & visitors & to show respect in other cultures & religious believes.

    An ornate and vibrant temple

    2019-04

    We visited this highly ornate and vibrant Temple with one of the best guides we’ve ever had. She explained that there is a main god and several lesser gods with their own shrines. She explained each of the shrines around the centre, such as the one where you asked for help with passing exams. The matchmaking god was an interesting one. If the god answers your request it’s apparently customary to take a thank you gift which, if food, once offered, you can take home and eat or give to the homeless.The temple which is nearly three centuries old is nowadays in town, surrounded by buildings but it is, nevertheless, impressive.
