Longshan Temple

Longshan Temple is a famous old temple and historical site in Taiwan. From Taipei Main Station take the Bannan line (the blue line) towards Yongning. Get off at Longshan Temple Station. When you exit, there will be signs outside the station directing you to the temple. There is no entrance fee and the temple is open from 6:00am until 10:20pm.

Stroll around the temple and take in the sights and sounds. The grounds are beautifully decorated and visitors can relax by ponds filled with large, colorful fish.
