Longshan Temple is located in Wanhua District and is Taipei’s the oldest temple. Built in 1738 by the settlers from Fujian, China. It serves as a place for worship and gathering place for the early settlers. It was destroyed by earthquake and also fire and was also part of the temple was destroyed during the Second World War. It was rebuilt again by the Taipei resident after the war.
I was able to get there (again reachable by MRT) and it is only a stone away from the MRT station.
This is the MRT station which I got off.
I was lucky as on that, as they were having some offering to the God as you can see the food on the table.
An old lady clearing the candles…..
Next stop will be the Night market (haha..again); Huaxi Night Market which is a walk away. =)
Some great photos here 🙂 What camera do you have? I particularly like the one of the table with food and the flowers. How did you capture photos with the colour at the centre but not the edges…. or is this photoshop?
Thanks for visiting my blog and the compliments. I was using my Nikon DSLR camera to take these shots. I did some touch-up using Picasa. =)
Thanks… I have just got a ‘Bridge Camera’ for Christmas…. just learning the multitude of possibilities available to me! So exciting 🙂 I also need to know what software to use, preferably free!
No problems. Nowadays, the smartphones camera are in fact quite good and with the software such as Snapseed or Camera+, you make wonders to your photos. Most of my recent photos in my blogs are taken using my 4s and edited on the smartphone itself and uploaded instantaneously.
Reblogged this on RD Revilo.
I had an excellent, though much raunchier time in Taipei as well. Glad to see you enjoyed the city. Which Camera app would you recommend btw? I don’t like pudding camera or instagram or camera 360
Thanks. Taipei and the rest of Taiwan is a wonderful place to visit. I am using Camera+ or Snapseed to do my photo editing if the pictures were captured using my Ip4s and if captured on my DSLR Nikon D5000, I will use Picasa 3 for some minor editing.
