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.

    I and my daughters visited by July 2019, we walked from MRT are not far to visit..the temple provided us for the candle and we walked around to see the pagoda. we request something and expected to receive it. Interesting and surprising, we got it from our request after that.

    Beautiful Temple in the middle of Taipei

    2019-07

    A visit to Longshan temple was nice. It is a really beautiful temple in the middle of Taipei. There is a good amount of people but beautiful build and great to see.

    Fabulous temple

    2019-07

    Maybe it was just luck-and jetlag-but visited the temple shortly after 7am-and it was bustling. There was a lovely ceremony being conducted, all in song, with nuns leading the way. Even visitors like myself were invited to participate; unfortunately I don't speak or read Chinese(there were choirbooks in Chinese available) but fortunately, just like Gregorian chants, even the uninitiated are able to sing along(a little). It was a poignant spiritual experience for this visitor; it's a lovely place to visit.

    Very impressive temple -- well worth the visit!

    2019-06

    Longshan Temple and Mengxia Park are well worth visiting when in Taipei. There is an MRT stop nearby and the temple itself is very beautiful, with impressive architecture and beautiful colors everywhere. The ornamental gate across the street offers nice photo ops as well.
