Definitely worth the slight excursion. It isn't crowded with either tourists nor worshipers. This latter was a plus as I'm always uncomfortable gawking at something while someone else, who lives there is in the midst of mindful prayer. Splendid paintings, etc. Two parts to it....More

This temple has very delicate art work and detail all over. An incredibly peaceful and cam place in the busy-ness of Taipei. There is much to see although it is not as active for local prayer as Longshan Temple. It is easily accessible via MRT...More

Without a doubt, Baoan Temple was the highlight of my trip to Taiwan. Originally, the group I was with had only intended to visit the nearby Confucius temple, but since Paoan Temple was so close-by we decided to visit it as well. I'm glad we...More

Temple is known for its fanciful woodwork and and spectular wooden dragons. The colors of the roofs were very interesting. This was a very serine, peaceful place. Not overly crowded. If you're in the area, it's worth going to if you haven't seen other Temples.

A smaller temple with a lot of people visiting. It's very nice and beautifully designed so I'd say it's worth a visit if you're in the area. Be respectful of the people who's there to do pray and worship.

This temple is worth visiting just for its architecture and decoration but even more so because it is very peaceful and not crowded like the better known temples in Taipei. The major shrine area is surrounded by many smaller shrines that I understand are dedicated...More

There are some accommodations close to this place but I must say i never tried them. There is metro station ( red line) Yuanshan aprox. 500 meters from the temple and also the bus stop like 200 meters from there.
