Lungshan Temple 艋舺龍山寺

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.

    Great temple, lots of history


    While in Taiwan my in laws took me to this temple, its worth a visit. Theres lots of history. The only down side was that it was very busy and difficult to move around, not very big either. Worth a visit I would recommend.

    Love the details on the ceiling/roof


    There is something quite unique about this temple. I also like the fact a lot of people come in to worship. There were beautiful bouquets of flowers which were offerings. The details on the roof and ceiling are also beautiful. There were many visitors but it did not feel crowded. This is a must visit in Taipei and it is also quite accessible by the MRT; it is also near the Bopiliao ancient street and the Huaxi snake market which is popular for snake dishes.

    Very unique


    We went here with an night tour of Taipei. I appreciated the tour guide sharing the different perspectives and ideology of this temple. The temple itself was beautiful and extremely busy. This is a worthwhile addition to any visit to Taipei.

    Beautiful, busy temple


    Busy Central temple with lots of worshippers performing ceremonies and asking for blessings. The temple itself is beautiful, but it's the real life aspect that is interesting
