Located in Wanhua District, Lungshan Temple is a very accessible temple to visit when you are in Taiwan. I was planning to dine to Huaxi Night Market, so I just dropped Lungshan Temple on the way. It was only in walling distance. So, I suggest you visit Lungshan as well when you go to Huaxi. Lungshan Temple serves as the place for worship for the Chinese folks living in Taipei.
It is very convenient to visit this place by MRT - Longshan Temple Station. Longshan Temple is a national second-level historic site. It is dedicated to the Guanyin Bodhisattva and represents one of Taiwan's important religious beliefs. #wintergetaway
The Longshan Temple was built in the Qing Dynasty for three years and has always had a lofty social status. Different from the clear attributes of other temples, the main hall of Longshan Temple is the Guanyin Bodhisattva, but it also enshrines the Taoist gods Mazu and Guandijun. It is said that this is because Taipei has immigrants from all over the country, in order to balance the beliefs of each region. Here are the gods.
In addition to praying for the world and making good friends, the most noteworthy thing about Longshan Temple is its exquisite temple architecture. Longshan Temple follows the traditional architectural style of southern China. The flying horns, the carved beams and the faades are stacked, especially the algae wells and chic stone carvings of the front hall and the main hall structure, which makes people instantly pass through the distant Qing Dynasty.
When the first light is on, it is the most beautiful moment of Longshan Temple. The dragon symbolizing good luck is like a flying dragonfly. The beautiful and gorgeous patterns and carvings fill the whole beam. The moon's charming and charming Longshan Temple is also dwarfed. .
Lungshan Temple is also known as the Lungshan Temple of Manka. It is a famous ancient temple in Taipei. The temple comprises a front hall, an apse, eastern and western treasures, and the main hall at the center. The structure represents the Chinese character "Hui". There are many statues being worshipped in the temple. The main divinity is the Goddess Guanyin. Each year during the holy days from the 15th to the 19th on the Lunar Calendar, the temple holds a grand memorial and a lantern exhibition.
