Lungshan Temple

Lungshan Temple is dedicated to Kuanyin, the Goddess of Mercy. It was built in 1738 by Fukienese immigrants as a branch of the original Lungshan Temple in Fukien Province and took five years to complete. Due to natural and man-made disasters, the temple has been repaired and renovated on numerous occasions. It faces south, with halls to the front and back and a central hall surrounded by protective dragons. The two bronze dragon pillars in the front hall, the four dragon pillars in the central hall, and the wooden carvings are all exquisitely crafted. The well and shrine in the front hall are particularly outstanding. The temple columns, inscriptions, and plaques are also worth a look.
