  • I went for the first time. I went on a weekday morning, but fewer people. So during the week I'm? But I wanted someone more morning new year's off. Was surprised very close to flying the plane. Not above, but little surprise. Photos are attached to pray where the management is terrible. Once you register, the following have separately or filling out a registration phone numbers when speaking. Lungshan Temple location, atmosphere and originally did not like, but I think here. But the plane come to mind. Here and places like Taipei's Xingtian Temple

  • 大龍峒保安宮主祀保生大帝,每年農曆七月中旬均舉辦中元普渡。釋教儀式在香港較少見,台灣紙紮也與香港有異,可自由觀賞。 
  • 因戶外寫生而來到保安宮,目前列為二級古蹟的保安宮,內部建築為重新修整後的樣貌,但仍保留了一些舊時的雕刻及壁畫,是很值得造訪的台北市景點。

  • One of the most beautiful temple in Taipei. My favourite anyway. The area of Datong around the temple is quite cool with food stalls.
  • Beautiful temple. Normally quiet, not a lot of people. Great view from the top. Definitely suggest to visit.
  • Very nice building that worships the god of medincine along with other 10 or so gods, across from the temple is its garden, also elegant and cozy.
  • Beautifully designed, a gem to walk through and quite quiet. Look at all the care and consideration that is given to all the various gods and deities.
  • One of the best temples in Taipei, no doubt.
