It is great to visit this temple, it is not only the temple itself but also the great view over the city Cebu. It is a little out of the way but with a taxi who wanrs to wait during visit, it is well worth

This Taoist temple is quite a fine temple with ornate and interesting architecture both, inside and out. You can spend hours roaming the grounds and taking-in every sight available here. Even the gardens are a splendid spectrum of colorful decoration as well. When in Cebu, you cannot miss out on this place.

Walking thru the stairs, it's like an exercise for us but the place was so majestic. I imagined myself in some Chinese movies back there.

The construction is definitely a "generic" Chinese. Although not old, it seems to be also a social gathering place of Chinese descents. Perhaps, the gardens gives you an extra perk that makes you visit worth.

We visited together with my sister, nephew and niece. My eyes are greatly appreciated with the structure of the temple and the overlooking view towards the city. It is nice to seat down, breathe in and relax.

Hard to find on your own, without a GPS. No guides when we was there, don't know if they got some eighter, and since we did not go there for eighter praying or meditation, notoo much to see or do, except getting some nice pictures.

This is one of the largest temple that we have seen. It is huge, well maintained and organized. It is situated on a hill.
