Dalongdong Baoan Temple, Taipei Reviews
Learn about Taiwan’s Chinese culture by visiting this wonderfully restored temple and the Confucius temple next door. The detail of the Baoan Temple is amazing. Look up or you will miss a lot of it.
My favorite temple in all of Taiwan. 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).
Amazing how the carvings are still intact. Surreal. A look at the past. Check out the myths the murals painted in the wall
Please go to this Temple! It's beautiful and a great way to experience a bit of Buddhism's practices. It's open to the public and fellow worshipers will gladly walk you through the practices, thus Westerners can participate in ceremony too.
Remarkable temple, beautiful art. Close by there is the street food area serving delicious food. Great experience!
