  • Nothing really special bout this place. It is just a Buddhist temple. They say it is one of the biggest one in the country. It also has a school at the back of the temple. Pictureque!

  • On our way back to Magallanes Residences from the car shop, Medy and I visited the Lon Wa Buddhist Temple along Cabaguio Avenue. We were impressed by the size of the temple. We were told that it is the biggest in Mindanao and is one of the largest in the country. The temple was established around 50 years ago. I used to see it as a child but I never ventured inside the compound. One Buddhist monk and a (Buddhist) nun reside in the temple which holds religious services in Mandarin. It houses a main place of worship and I saw at least two side chapels. The temple also runs a Buddhist school and up to recent years was a Shao Lin Kung Fu center. It is an interesting and welcoming place to visit with the security guard serving as the tourist guide! 2014.06.25 About a month ago, we revisited the temple with Medy's friends who were in Davao for a tour. This time, the lady monk invited us to join her and the male monk for very hot tea and mandarin orange candies. She had been in Davao for a while so she spoke Visayan fluently. She said they had two services a week. She invited us to join them in next Sunday's service and to the vegetarian lunch thereafter (we were not able to do this because of conflicting schedules but we will attend their services in the near future). We did buy some prayer beads and she taught us how to pray the Buddhist way.
  • 我在这个寺庙学到了很多,里面还有一间学校。记得名字不是lon wa 是longhua temple。学校的名字是Philipine academy of sakya Davao Inc.
