Dalongdong Baoan Temple, Taipei Reviews
My most favorite temple in all of Taiwan (so far). Super clean and well-cared-for example of ancient Chinese temple architecture. Go at night for a step back in time: Glowing red lanterns, temple incense, and judicial use of modern lighting accent the highly detailed artistry and excellent craftsmanship. A must see is also the 4th floor of the rear adjacent temple addition: You get a mesmerizing view of the temple rooftops. It is often missed by most tourists. The Baoan Temple Gardens across the street offer a relaxing change of pace: you can view a large koi pond, dragon fountain, and stroll amidst old trees and man-made paths. Bring a little dog food to feed the fish (much better for them than white bread). Note to Baoan Temple Management: I love your temple. It is a jewel of Taiwan. Could you please post descriptions in English about each of the gods at each section? This is the best way for me to learn about and appreciate your temple more.
Nicest temple in Taipei in my opinion. Old but uniquely decorated, quiet and solemn place. A must see if you are into temples.
Best preserved temple in Taipei. The drum and bell towers (see photo) were originally designed for defense against attack by rival linguistic groups from Fujian
