Lungshan Temple

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

    2017-11

    Beautiful and busy temple. We observed many people offering incense and praying. Occassionally i would see some dropping stones on the floor, as part of their prayers, i think. It was interesting to watch from the sides. Outside the temple is a wall with cascading water and a small pond/pool; quite a relaxing spot. There was a small store within the area selling amulets and charms for your specific intent (wishing for good health, success, etc). My 60 yr old mom hung out there during our visit and had fun buying tokens for family and friends.

    A historic chinese temple

    2017-10

    The temple is one of the most popular temples in Taipei. There are many visitors no matter it is day or night. The sculptures and the decorations are very authentic. It worth a visit for any people who would like to see an authentic chinese temple in Taipei. Moreover, it is located just next to the Metro station..

    Impressive temple

    2017-11

    A very nice temple and it is well worth visiting. It is not as impressive as the Bao’an Temple. Next door to it is a small alley where medicinal herbs are sold.

    Pretty Temple

    2017-11

    This is a very pretty Temple but it was very crowded. We made the obligatory circle around the temple and we were done within 15 minutes. We made it quick because of our young kids
