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.

    Interesting place


    An interesting temple in the midst of a semi built up area in Taipei. Not large, but the fact that it is open to the air does mean that there is less of the overwhelming incense atmosphere which is common is some places. Beautiful carvings inside, but don’t miss what is on the roof as well. We went at night so the atmospherics were somewhat more mystical than seeing it during the daytime.

    early morning 6.30am


    If your flight out of Taipei by scoot is at 3.30 odd afternoon a good morning wake up call and off to this temple is perfect . I stayed at Daan shangri la hotel (Far East shangri la) so by taxi and back was perfect the particular cab driver was obliging as I said he could also take me to the airport . great morning though there was a slight drizzle in October the cab driver told me this is an indication of change of weather ... I made a mistake actually of not visiting this area earlier so the cab driver drove me around the neighbourhood .morning prayers in the beginning of lunar calendar meant seeing a lot of devotees at the temple .

    Walking tour here


    Went here as part of a walking tour and they gave great insight into the 3 main gods worshiped here and how to get answers from the stones. Very beautiful place with lots of meaning ❤️

    Very popular temple in Taipei


    Very popular temple in Taipei. Lots of tourists. Apparently there was a famous Taiwanese movie scene made here I think. A small token of appreciation is enough, save the large donations for those who actually need it.
