Must visit in TaipeiA temple which more than 100 years Night Market & Local Restaurant in 5 minutes walk Especially the seafood stall
Intricate & ornateAs Taiwan's oldest temple built 280 years ago in 1738, this is one temple we had to include in our itinerary when we visited Taipei. The temple is in honor of Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy. It comprises a few buildings and is located conveniently across the Longshan Temple "Blue Line" Subway Station. The architecture, intricate craftsmanship and ornate carvings are sights to behold. Although the smoke from burning joss sticks had darken and dulled the detailing, regular maintenance has allowed the details to be visible and enjoyed by visitors. During our visit, we saw foreigners sitting on the stone steps and admiring the temple. A few art or architectural students were drawing sketches of the temple's facade and decorations. It must have been difficult, given the great amount of fine details involved. Whether for historical or religious reasons, Longshan Temple is a highly recommended visit.
Wonderful architecture with cultural eventsWe were there on our last day in Taipei very early in the morning before our flight in the afternoon at 4.35pm. It was very easily accessible with a designated MRT station using the same name as Longshan Temple. We happened to encounter the ceremony and procession in the temple as early as 7am plus in the morning. It was an interesting cultural event that we managed to witness the mass chanting among the prayers in the temple and procession embarkation from the temple. Very impressive architecture and we have learnt that this temple has been identified by the ministry of culture to be one of the cultural and historical places in Taiwan since 12 November 2018.
Crowded, slightly disappointingQuite a lot of tour groups and certainly not the most impressive or interesting temple in Taipie. I found Bao'an Temple far more worthwhile.
One of the most popular temples in TaipeiThe temple is not very big and it visited by a lot of people, most come to pray and few tourists. The place is very friendly and has impressive decorations, even without knowing the local culture you can feel the spirituality of the place. This is a great place to start understanding the local culture and religion.
