I love Asia temples, so the chance to do this one as i was only about 20 minutes away was to much to resist, the place is only small but the views from the top were outstanding, obviously you're restricted from taking photos inside the main temple, but the fact its free is in itself a good reason to go

Situated up in the hills overlooking the city this is a very garish example of Tao culture and personally speaking I thought the whole enterprise remarkably tacky, no real history associated with it and it reminded me of the rather feeble dinosaur park in Crystal Palace! There are cosiderably better views to be had at 'Tops' without the slog!

This is a great cultural experience while in Cebu. It is a short drive from the city, but worth it. Be prepared to walk a lot and climb many stairs.

The start of the visit was the 100 or so steps to the temple, a bit of a challenge for us of "more mature years". Taking it steadily and having protection from the sun, the climb was OK and worth the effort. The views are spectacular, and the art work, Buddhas and architecture fascinating. Although not religious, I found the... More

We rented a cab to take us there and wait while we walked the grounds. This was a highlight for us during our visit to Cebu. Very beautiful, spiritual, and serene.

Rough road ahead. NO available signage, road signs to guide tourists could've been posted to help tourists find the place.

Visiting the Taoist Temple in Cebu is like stepping from one world into another. From a bustling traffic jammed city into a spiritual world far away. The 99+ steps to reach the top are not for everyone, but the cluster of lovely temples and the great views of the city from the top are worth the effort.
