“Opportune time to light incense sticks”

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

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.

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.

Macho temple is a great place for people who want to witness chinese culture and religion.

it is also a great place for having photoshoots because of its east asian ambiance.

There is no entrance fee, all they wish is to maintain silence in the vicinity.

My husband is Chinese, we lighted insence sticks. The place is not attractive, quite dull but it's a place of worship. We had to look for it because my husband will not go home without paying his respect.
