Unique Temple, very busy, recommend standing off to the side, out of the traffic queues and enjoy the ceilings and architecture. Impressive during the day, it's also well lit at night for a different view. Many vegetarian restaurant options in the streets around the Temple.
Very famous temple in Taipei Buddhism and Dao religion center. For sightseeing, good to spend half hour to visit and have your pray for getting best wishes. Most local people visit for pray to get guidance and good luck from gods, for getting rid of bad luck.
