The Temple is situated outside of central Cebu about 45 minutes from the down town. It's a serene and fascinating Chinese architecture site where you can see and gain a mild insight into the Taoist religion / culture. Exploring the immaculately groomed grounds and Temple buildings was very interesting, but the views from the peak were just as satisfying. Take... More

Cebu Taoist Temple was financed and built by Cebu's Chinese community in 1972. It sits on a hill nearly 1,000 meters above sea level and looks down over Cebu City and across to Mactan Island. It is built on three levels, and even when you come up here by car or taxi, you need a stamina to climb the stairs... More

It's much easier to start at the top of the hill and make your way downhill. It's not a very big temple but still a pretty one. If you are wearing shorts and revealing clothing, you will be asked to cover up with one of there sarongs before entering the worship/pray area. You can also get some great views of... More

Great for meditation and asking for answers. Hard to get to but still nice. It is advisable to get a van for transportation. Most cabs do not go all the way out here.

We came here by taxi we hired for an afternoon of sightseeing in Cebu city. It requires climbing a series of steps, not hard but definitely will get you out of breath to reach the top. Midway there are benches for you to rest. The temple on the top is small and no camera or picture taking allowed. You get... More

This place has never change since I was a kid, and after more than 20 years I get to tour here with my family, and they all enjoyed it. If you are a believer of prayer and wishes then you try the wish beans (I actually forgot how they called it) but its really cool. Old Chinese people will help... More

This temple is quite a site to see. I first saw it in 1966 and it still amazes me today. It is a well kept site and one worth the trip into the hills to visit.
