Visited the Confucious temple first and this temple is literally just across the street through a small but pretty garden like park. I am used to colorful temples but this temple has a black façade but the designs are intricate. There were some visitors and...More

I'll be honest, after a couple of temples, they all start looking the same. This is a large one though, but hot. It's nearby the Confucius Temple, which was more unique. We came upon this Paoan Temple after visiting the Confucius Temple.

Definitely worth the slight excursion. It isn't crowded with either tourists nor worshipers. This latter was a plus as I'm always uncomfortable gawking at something while someone else, who lives there is in the midst of mindful prayer. Splendid paintings, etc. Two parts to it....More

This temple has very delicate art work and detail all over. An incredibly peaceful and cam place in the busy-ness of Taipei. There is much to see although it is not as active for local prayer as Longshan Temple. It is easily accessible via MRT...More

I learned of the temple when researching best night photo opportunities for Taipei and was so glad we visited. The temple was peaceful with very few visitors when we arrived around 20:00. We were able to take our time inspecting the beautiful intricacies of the...More

There are some accommodations close to this place but I must say i never tried them. There is metro station ( red line) Yuanshan aprox. 500 meters from the temple and also the bus stop like 200 meters from there.
