Description

Mengjia Longshan Temple

艋舺龙山寺

Mengjia Longshan Temple is in Wanhua District. The temple itself was put up in 1738 by settlers from Fujian. It served not only as a place of worship, but also as a community gathering place. As such, a lot of early Taipei civic identity may owe itself to this temple, and the area immediately surrounding it. Like most Taiwanese temples, this one is devoted to a mix of deities from Chinese folk religion and Buddhism, including Guan Yu, Mazu and Guanyin.
