Lungshan Temple

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.

    It's free. Beautiful temple. Lot of colors. Lot of detailed arts. A bit too crowded for me. Between 30 minutes to 1h of your time.

    There is more to this temple than meets the eye so its a must to be part of a tour to fully appreciate this Temple -we saw it at night which added a different dimension to it.

    Best of both worlds


    It is a beautiful temple. The campus is not very large but worth a visit. It's a famous religious place amongst locals. I visiter at night, the view in lighting is much better. Just outside the temple there is a busy modern street. You can get a shot of historical temple and modern street in the same picture. A cross the raod is a local food street. Snake and turtle meat shops..Worth taking a walk though. There are some other local street food stalls with great food.

    An old temple


    Though built in 1730s it does not look old but looks peaceful and makes you pray for something. Just follow the small crowd in praying. Close to a MRT.

    Longshan temple a place to visit in Taipei


    It is most well known temple in Taiwan, built in 1738. The temple has stood the test of time and lasted through several natural disasters and wars. Longshan Temple is one of largest and oldest temples in Taiwan. Entrance is free, but donations to maintain the upkeep of the temple are accepted It is located next to Long shan Metro Station. The surrounding night market can also be visited to have cheap local food.
