Longshan Temple, Taipei Reviews

  • Pretty good place. Chinese temple. Calm and soothing. Having a hectic time? Come here and calm yourself down! I felt rejuvenated. Worth giving it a try.

  • This temple is one of the most historical temples in Taiwan. If you come here, you can experience Daoism and Buddhism placing an important role in the Taiwanese people heart. Just come with true heart and pray, and experience the religious cultures of Taiwan ❤️ 臺灣歷史悠久的廟宇,是信仰的中心,來此可以體驗臺灣的佛道文化。心誠則靈。

  • A nice temple with plenty of history and becautiful design, but location is definitely pushing into one of the seedier parts of Taipei. It’s always hard to tell what’s weather and typhoon worn and what’s legitimately pushing the boundaries of safe...places selling porn on the street (one block off from the night market) are not usually what we call “family friendly”. My understanding is that Wanhua is not the neighborhood you wander at night if you’re not on the prowl for certain paid services.

  • Intricately detailed temple with attached waterfall. The decorations are beautiful but the temple always has tourists and worshippers regardless of the time of day.

  • Longshan temple is one of the places in Taiwan where locals come for worship and to pray for the soul of their departed ones. Its a nice place, with artificial waterfalls inside. Worth the visit!
