Beautiful temple but as other reviews have said, rather crowded. The details of artwork and sculptures in the building architecture are stunning. The temple is directly across from the metro exit so it is very easy to locate. Make sure to take some time and...More

Same same as all Chinese Temples. When you have seen one you have seen them all. Nothing different. Extremely busy when we went.

The temple complex is beautifully decorated. Many people go there to worship. Looking around the area is also interesting: it is not touristy, so you'll see many pensioners waiting for food distribution, small local shops and other interesting aspects of local life.

This is a lovely historic and traditional temple situated in a modern city. Everything from the smell of incenses to the chatter and even the rich decor will captivate you.

Yes, there are 2-3 a few blocks from Longshan Temple on the left, right, and behind. Can't remember their names, but one of them is the famous 'Snake Alley' night market.
