  • Great place to see a great Chinese temple. This place is packed with worshipers and some tourists. There are several gods and it is interesting to see them how they show their devotion. I wish that they would put some English written guide when you go in the temple. The man made waterfalls is an interesting and a welcome sight.

  • Very popular temple in Taipei. Lots of tourists. Apparently there was a famous Taiwanese movie scene made here I think. A small token of appreciation is enough, save the large donations for those who actually need it.

  • The most famous temple in Taipei where both local people and tourists coming here to make a wish. After enter the main gate, you would find artificial waterfall on the right side, and fountain in the pond on the left side. Inside the temple, you will hear people praying continuously. It's great to see facilities for people with disabilities such as wheelchair ramp.

  • You can find internal peace in this temple even you’re not Buddhist. Friendly to tourist, there’s English version of fortune telling explanations. Highly recommend signing up for local walking tour that you can hear the interesting history of Long-Shan temple and understand Taiwan’s unique culture.

  • I enjoyed not only the temple but the surrounding Parks, old buildings and people. A taste of olden Taiwan.
