  • This is a magical place - definitely my favourite temple in Taipei. It is an incredibly peaceful and beautiful space. If you have to choose one temple to visit while you are in Taipei, I would strongly recommend going to Longshan Temple. Regardless of the time or day of the week, it is one of the most incredible spots in Taipei

  • Can be very hot but very beautiful Temple. The bathrooms have ac with both squat and sitting toilets. The toilet paper is outside at entrance and you need to grab before you enter the bathroom. There is one free incense per adult. Crowded inside and outside in front of Temple. Station exit very close to Temple. Lovely Temple.

  • This beautiful historical temple is very well-preserved. The inside is clean, visitors are respectful of it being a place of worship, and most importantly the bathroom stalls are super clean!! You can also refill your water bottle here.

  • Beautiful temple with lots of history. Amazing to see the past right next to the present and pray for the future while you're here. Loved it.

  • Even though the place is usually packed with people, it's still pretty calm. It's a nice experience for outsiders to learn more about Buddhist culture. But please be respectful, stay at the sidelines and try not be intrusive.
