“Working Temple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

They have parking if you are bringing a car. Tricycles will also take you up until the gate if you do it via public transportation or you can walk up. The view from the temple is very nice.

“Feng Shui and The Sea”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Spent some time on this place with friends wanting to have a feng shui consultation with the local priest of the temple. Place was well kept, though some areas need serious repair. Quiet place with an excellent view of the south china sea on.

“Opportune time to light incense sticks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Our host friend was soo kind enough to bring us here. HOnestly didn't know how we got there, since we were also provided with the vehicle with driver. The Temple was sooo solemn and the ambiance was so airy since the side doors were opened with a great view, too. Taught my filipino friends how to light the incense sticks and pray and make their wishes. Loved the scent of those sticks, quite mesmerizing. My friends also had some polaroids taken, to which the caretaker obliged. Saw, too some filipino guests visiting and noticed a place under a big tree with a sign that says "Not for dating" hahaha. Since it was such a serene and peaceful place, my guess is, some lovers meet there. But, overall it's such a great place for contemplating and just talking to the one above, being a Chinese or otherwise :D

“Taoist temple”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Similar to those in Baguio and Cebu,it is a place to rest, relax, meditate as well as take photos and enjoy the scenic view. It is situated at the heart of the city of San Fernando, La Union. It has a small entrance along the highway and is very easy to miss. Not a very popular attraction of the city but I would suggest a visit if only to stop, rest and take a break from the long journey.

“Relaxing and scenic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

A nice place to visit in San Fernando. Once reached that steep roads end, a nice well maintained temple awaits you. The view on the town is excellent and its a great place to shoot pictures- either from that beautiful temple and of course from the town.
