Longshan Temple

Longshan Temple was built in 1738 by Fujianese immigrants as a branch of the original Longshan Temple in Fujian Province. It was started in 1738 and completed in 1740. During 200 years the Mt. Longshan temple has gone through many construction works and renovations. The main entrance opens only during the festive celebrations therefore usually all enter from the temple gate – right side gate.

Entering the temple it’s worthy to look at many Buddhists making an obeisance and offering reverently something to sacrifice, while saying the sutra prays to Buddha. In the courtyard just on the left from the palace you can see an incense burner that carries an interesting sculpture – “gruff lifts the temple angle”.

Both sides of the courtyard there are also a bell tower and a drum tower. Early morning you can hear gong strikes, in the evening beating of a drum and taking sutras are the Buddhist meeting reminder. While arriving to the palace and leaving, you can see on the right wing of the palace very many Buddhas sculptures. Some people say that the numerous gods are gathering to the Mt. Longshan temple for an office meeting. It’s a very pure and good place. So why not come here?
