Longshan Temple

Longshan Temple is a famous establishment in Taipei. It is said that whatever you pray at this temple, it will come true so do give it a try. However, arrive before lunch hour because as the crowds come later in the day it may not be so safe with small children and dozens of lit joss sticks all around.

Tips

Metro: The Longshan MRT Station is an easy way to get to Longshan Temple. Exit 4 is a one minute walk from the temple but it is slightly hard to find. You must first walk out of Exit 1 at the MRT station, turn right into the Longshan Underground Mall, walk to the end and ascend up the escalators to leave the mall at Exit 4. There are clear signs hung overhead along the way.

Walk to discover: There is much hustle and bustle around Longshan Temple and Bopiliao that is within walking distance. There is no need to take a bus to visit the other famous temples in the area or to find a playground at the local school for the kids to play. If the kids complain that it is too hot, walk into one of the many convenience stores to buy a cool beverage and sit down until they are ready to explore again.


Character: The area around Longshan is affectionately known as Monga (i.e. Bangka) to the local people. Since Monga was the first developed area of Taipei, it has its own character that visitors should take a moment to understand. Much activity happens outdoors under the sun because the locals enjoy the ability to interact with one another in easy proximity. That is why you will see some restaurants with tables out on the sidewalk.
