Mengjia Longshan Sanctuary (Chinese: 艋舺龍山寺; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Báng-kah Liông-san-sī) is a sanctuary in Wanhua Area, Taipei, Taiwan. The sanctuary was implicit Taipei in 1738 by pioneers from Fujian, China. It served as a position of love and a social event place for the Chinese pioneers. The sanctuary has been demolished either in full or to some degree on various seismic tremors and flames.


Amid World War II, on 31 May 1945 it was hit by American assault aviators amid the Strike on Taipei, who asserted the Japanese were concealing weapons inside. The primary building and the left hallway were harmed and a lot of people valuable antiquities and works of art were lost in the following flame.

Taipei occupants have by and by reliably reconstructed and redesigned it, and did so again after the end of the Second World War a couple of months after the fact. Longshan is seen as a symbolic case of Taiwanese established structural engineering, with southern Chinese impacts ordinarily seen in more seasoned structures.

Like most sanctuaries in Taiwan, the Sanctuary venerates a mixture of Buddhist, Taoist, and people divinities.

The temple is accessible within walking distance North from Longshan Temple Station of the Taipei Metro.
