Tamsui Longshan Temple
Although it carries the same name, this temple should not be confused with it's much larger counterpart in Taipei city proper. Tucked away just off from Tamsui Old Street, it is a lovely example of an older style of Chinese temple architecture.
Many of the buildings constructed in this style did not survive the mainland's Cultural Revolution, and this one is one of the lesser known examples. It was originally built over the course of the 1850s but burned down a few decades later. The monks tending it are quite friendly, though it is recommended you follow religious etiquette when entering.
