Very warm caring society, this is the only place that I find it very warmth that's full with local silver and golden ages group of local people, less touristy, cos I can see that the local senior citizens love this place so much that they gathers together here everyday. They are enjoying themselves, playing chess game, chit chatting and etc.. I can see that there are a lot of sharing of stories among each other. Some hidden spot underground which needs to be highlighted, the fortune teller underground zone and artsy area. Worth check it out!!
Longshan Temple is one of Taipei's most important, and is very busy with worshippers day and evening. It's located in the Wanhua district, and even ha its own metro station! Established in 1738, Longshan is also Taipei's oldest. Located in front of Mangka Park. Also nearby is the Guangzhou Street NIght Market, perfect to stroll up and down after a visit to Longshan Temple.
One of the most well known temples inside Taipei city. The temple's architecture is absolutely gorgeous and the religious atmosphere is even so present, at night, the festive displays lights up in an impressive manner. Even in the depth of night, there are many people who comes and pray to the old gods of China. My friends who brought me here explained to me the significance of each god or goddess and the occasions in which people pray to them. It was an fascinating and interesting lesson on religion.
One of the more famous temples in Taipei. On a normal day, I probably wouldn't have given it 5 stars because there's not much that you can do at a temple. However, this was during Mid-Autumn Festival, so there many tables overflowing with offerings, people in black robes, and there was a constant collective singing from the people who came to pray and give offerings.
