  • The place is very nice. Just a little walk from the city center. The caretaker & guard were very accommodating. A solemn place for people meditating. There was even music being played throughout the compound. A must-place to visit in La Union 👍🏼
  • They say, OFWs visit here before going abroad to pray for luck and strength. This should not be missed as a side trip when you're in La Union. Aside from the overlooking view of South China Sea, you'll really feel like you're in China too. Open during weekdays; from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., no entrance fee required.
  • If you're visiting the San Juan surf spot, you should definitely try to visit the Ma-Cho temple as a side trip. Only a few minutes away from the beach area, there's also parking available. Entrance is free, although they accept donations. You can try to light incense to thank the sea goddess for the beautiful weather and nice ocean.
  • This Taoist Temple is located on a 70 foot hill overlooking West Philippine Sea and was constructed on Sept. 11, 1975. People come and pray for change of luck from Ma Cho, a Chinese diety.
  • This place is so solemn and please maintain silence at all times, People from the temple are very accommodating
