Even if you're not a culture buff, a visit to this majestic Taoist temple on Beverly Hills is one such unforgettable experience you could have in your Cebu trip. The complex is smacked right in one of the hillsides of Beverly Hills where the posh Beverly Hills Village is found. It is better to start your ascent to the top... More

I think travelers should also come here, religion set aside, because you have to be able to look, observe and see the magnificent differences yet the adorable culture and religion of the other people. And this is a really famous temple and attraction in the city.

It is 81 steps to the temple from the street (in the Beverly Hills section of Cebu!) and 49 more steps to the highest altar (numbers of central meaning to the Tao). It is serene and nice to see.

Provides a superficial insight into the Taoist religion.Chinese= business= money and therefore the temple is well maintained. Pleasant views afforded.

It's a very nice place to go if you want to remove stress and other problems. It's quiet, calming, refreshing and not far from the city proper. You can take time to relax and take a deep breath. You don't have to pay for entrance, they don't ask for any fees but the place is well maintained and clean.

The place would want you to go back in time. Arts and statues were all over the place. The atmosphere was calming and very relaxing.

This place houses the spirits which took care of the early Chinese who developed Cebu. Great views of the city and fresh air. Getting there is no problem but taxis try to rip us off when leaving. Best to walk the 5 mins down the road to the main gate and get a taxi there. Taxis picking up outside the... More
