This temple is on the top of a mountain, you can see the cebu city from the top of the temple. Very beautiful and calm. If you take a meter taxi they will drop you there. For returning from the temple wait at the car park. When another taxi comes there you will get the taxi. The security in the... More

The Taoist Temple is a very tranquil place to visit. It's very serene and has some nice views of the surrounding hillsides. The temple itself is a functioning temple, so you need to be courteous to the members and respect their rules around the worship areas. This is not place to visit if you have any issues with climbing stairs,... More

A great place that's just a little ways away from the city proper. It's an easy way to leave all the hustle and bustle that Cebu is known for. The table is serene, well maintained, and has a great view overlooking the city. The best part, it's FREE!

This is a great place to visit with family and has a great view over Cebu city. It is very peaceful and well worth the effort to get here. Tip. Approach from the top and avoid the 99 steep steps up to the Temple. There are many souvenir items for sale in the small shop at reasonable prices too.

A little outside the city center, but well worth the trip. Taxi from Ayala was about 180. The views from the temple lookout over the city and deserve the taxi ride itself. But set up a taxi before or download "grabtaxi"

Travel to Cebu is not complete without visiting the Taoist temple. Before heading to the airport, I make it a point to drop by. You not only capture a great view, you also absorb the peace and calm of the temple. It's like recharging yourself before you head on back to the rigamarole of life.

A place Chinese-Cebuanos go to to pray, go to the temple. Feel the Chinese culture when you visit the Taoist Temple.
