A place to visit for tourist visiting Cebu, the Taoist Temple is part of the attraction tourist go to when they visit Cebu. If youve seen it once, you wouldnt want to see it again

Found in a private village up north, you van get here via cab or Uber. Once here, make sure you muster all you (leg) strength so you can climb the stairs to reach the temple(s). It is not that high or many steps. It could be a good stop just right before any meal... climb up, get down feeling tired... More

The temple offers great views of Cebu City and is really worth the visit. It is surrounded by beautiful green nature - a great place to breathe some fresh air and enjoy some quiet, far from the usual noise and traffic of the city

Wonderfully maintained Taoist temple. We got there by private-hire car, otherwise must be a tough walk during daytime through a tough neighborhood. Take water with you. Take a lot of photos, ask questions from the gods if you are brave enough :)

it was nice for pictures. But this taoist temple is out of the way. And you need to ask the taxi driver to wait for you, otherwise you have to walk down like 1KM for the taxi.

We love how peaceful the place was and it just invites you to reflect and say a little prayer or two. We will definitely visit again.

Naturally you can get a tour of this place either privately or with a taxi. We decided to visit ourselves and walked from our hotel. It is however a fair walk in the Philippine heat. Although a steep climb isn't really forthcoming until you reach the private housing area called Hollywood. There are quite a few steps to climb towards... More

It's one of the highlights of our city tour. What I liked the most is the serenity of the place and they don't require an entrance fee unlike in other temples in Cebu. The only downside is that it's far from the city, so you need to rent a cab just to go there.

The place was pretty much empty which made the visit very nice. The view of the bay is splendid as is the painting on this well maintained temple. We loved the turtles and giant frog in the fountain below. The multiple levels and many dragons make the walk interesting. I wish we had known more about the history before we... More

After all the churches it's a nice change to see Taoist temple. I have certainly seen much nicer and bigger ones. However, in Cebu it's not only the temple itself that is nice. It's also the location - a quiet place above Cebu on the way to the mountains.
