Friday:18:00 - 22:00




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.

    #1 Temple we visited .....


    We were fortunate to visit at the tail end of the Lunar New Years holiday season. The exterior of the temple grounds were decorated with hundreds of yellow lanterns and the interior also contained extra decorations. This was our favorite of all the temples we visited in Japan, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Okinawa. It was filled with many worshipers, flower arrangements, offerings of candy, fruit, flowers etc. Religious services were being conducted by monks. There were many worshipers praying and seeking guidance in their lives and many asking fortune tellers to predict their future. The grounds were beautiful including a waterfall at the entry. DO NOT MISS THIS TEMPLE

    Active temple


    This is an active temple in Taipei and it was very interesting to see people bring offerings and praying. The temple is fairly well cared for and offers some interesting photo opportunities. Need about 1 + hour to visit.

    An Ornate and Welcoming Taoist/Buddhist Temple


    Worth a visit to admire the well carved or built religious figures. Also admire the architecture and roofs of the buildings. One can ask for fortune tellers or throw your fortune stick. You can buy interesting charms/amulets too for all occasions - babies, luck, marriage etc. Nearby are interesting shops for food or selling all types of goods. The metro station is just in front and along busy bus routes too. A welcoming toilet is available.

    Vibrant and Fascinating Temple


    I currently live in Japan and am amazed by the temples here, but the temples in Taipei are so vibrant and have so much character, Longshan Temple is no different. The colors, architecture, and style make this truly unique. I came here on a weekend evening and it was pretty busy with tourists and locals. I did not partake in anything, I simply loved walking the grounds to look at the fascinating temple. I wish I knew more about the history and practices here since it is so fascinating. The temple is easy to get to and is close to some night markets and other attractions.
