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.

    Amazing Cultural Immersion Opportunity

    From the landscaped grounds with waterfalls and fountains to the interior statuary and architecture, Longshan Temple is a must-stop while in Taipei. I learned so much about Buddhism!

    We were in Taipei for a vacation that ran over Diwali. We decided to visit this temple for blessings for the new year as it was close to our hotel. Definitely should be in the list to visit!

    traditional old temple

    2019-11

    Very old temple and very busy on a sunny afternoon. I walked in, admired the architecture and craftmanship and lit a stick of incense and said a prayer. Then I stood awestruck as the crowd started to sing what sounded to me like an ancient prayer.Very much worth a visit if you're in Taipei.

    Entrace = Free (Opens every day from 6:00AM-10:00PM) You must go to this Temple when in Taipei. It's a Beautiful temple with an impressive decoration. It is the most famous temple in Taiwan. Built in 1738, this temple is the home of Buddhist, Taoist and folk religious deities like Mazu (the sea goddess) and Guanyin. I would suggest to come here at night, so you can see the amazing lights the temples has. If you want to avoid the crowds then get here early. The pleasing chants of praying devotees, and the overall peaceful atmosphere of this temple, make it a must go place when visiting Taipei.
