Structure (Post#13) : Longshan Temple – Taiwan’s Famous Old Temple

Longshan Temple is visible in my tourist map that I was holding on while walking in Ximending. Not realizing how famous the temple, I decided to visit the structure after finishing my walk in Ximending. When I reached the temple, just discovered the crowd that visits the temple, proven that its famous to Buddhist alike. These photos are part of Taiwan Experimental Travel Adventure Photo Collection January 2017.

I found the temple while walking away from the shopping streets of Ximen as I was looking for historical sites using the map that was given to me from the accommodation that I was staying at that time. These photos are part of Taiwan Experimental Travel Adventure Photo Collection January 2017.
