Taoist Temple, Cebu City

3.8
Perched on the top of Cebu’s classy Beverly Hills, Taoist Temple stands as an impressive modern place of worship built by the city’s Chinese community in 1972. Entered through a replica of the Great Wall of China after 81 symbollic steps, the temple offers an insight into Chinese folk religions. Standing at an elevation of 300 m (980 ft), the temple's grounds serve as a great platform to relax with a scenic view of the city. Admire a statue of a long green dragon outside the temple garden, or stroll around the complex and simply enjoy the scenery. Volunteers will help you take part in rituals for good luck.

  • It is located inside a posh subdivision with strict guards and quiet atmosphere. They don't require an entrance fee. When you enter the temple, you'll see the whole Cebu City overlooking through a paid telescope. The place is very tranquil and there are guards who will remind you to minimize the noise and which side is off limit and no picture taking allowed.
  • A popular temple that tourists and locals visit, picturesque with sweeping views of Cebu City. Because it's in a hilly portion, stairs are steep. Saturdays can be crowded with visitors and the parking lot can get filled easily. Visitors should follow rules in the temple.
  • Second visit to this tourist attraction in several years. It is a clean extension of China in Cebu City. Has a mini great wall, the dragon, and many prayer halls. After having been to Beijing a few years ago, it just seemed a little less fun than our first experience. That being said, once is enough for a wise man. It is free, has facilities, eats and drinks, and souvenirs.
  • there is few local people at the temple. you can see chinese culture. it is calm and we can see great view of cebu city from the temple. we can draw paper fortune. it is free. it cost your feeling for chip
  • This was a truly interesting place. It exudes reverence, tranquil and peaceful. It also offers a gorgeous vista of the city of Cebu...
