Introduction

Emerging from the clean, spacious, air-conditioned metro station of Long-Shan Temple, the unwitting traveler is immediately plunged into sensory overload, for this district of Taipei City is a heady mixture of the old, the new and the downright kitsch. Amidst the flashing neon lights, ethnic food, prostitutes and their aged female pimps, dwells the Temple of Long-Shan, an architectural blend of the ornate, the garish and the traditional. The temple is frequented mostly by the elderly, slumbering, murmuring in hushed and not-so-hushed voices and restlessly wafting fans to expel the oppressive heat. With an irreverence only afforded the old, they pay scant attention to Time, squandering it in idle gossip, nonchalant about its inevitable conclusion, They look on with bemusement and fascination at the foreigners and day-trippers who make a pilgrimage to the temple, jostled along by the crowd.
