» Longshan Temple «

Longshan Temple was built in 1738, one of the oldest and famous Chinese religious temple in Taipei. It was established by immigrants from Fuijian and has been the center and house of worship.

Without further ado, our trip started in visiting Longshan Temple (龍山寺)Longshan Temple is a station away from Ximen station if you will ride in MRT Bannan Line or Blue Line. 

There were few people worshipping and providing their offerings when we visited the place. We strolled here around 30 minutes.

There's a beautiful water falls at one side near the entrance. There were few people taking photos here, too.
