Introduction
About Longshan Temple

 

The Longshan Temple houses hundred of statues of Buddhist, Taoist, and Confucian deities.  The temple mixes traditional Chinese siheyuan ("four-building courtyard") with palace architecture in its design.  The temple is divided into front hall, main hall, rear hall, right wing and left wing.  Painting of vivid creatures grace the temple walls, and stone statues of mystical creatures guard the temple grounds.  The joining of wall and roof did not use any nails or braces made of metal.  Covered by overtapping tiles, the temple roof is decorated with figures of dragon, phoenix and other auspicious creatures.   The figures are decorated with porcelain, clay, and shards of colored glass. They represent the pinnacle of mosaic art in Taiwan.  The temple has been declared a Secondary National Heritage Site.
