Taoist temple is located in a pretty high area so the view from the temple is really nice. The structure of the building itself is great and the place is really calm. You can actually take pictures around except the temple/s itself (praying area). I was rrally paying much attention at that time and was about to take a pic... More

Very peaceful, relaxing and it offers also a nice view over the valley. You can visit it on your own or as part of a city tour. Best in the morning or at sunset.

I wasn't expecting much coming here. I was impressed at how well kept this place was. Great for taking pictures and that was about it. Worth visiting if you are in Cebu.

I thought this place was going to be difficult to get to after reading other reviews here. I was expecting it to be on a cliff with hundreds of stairs. Actually it was really easy, just take a cab. The stairs are totally manageable unless you have limited mobility. The temple itself is nice enough but not quite the serene... More

Very unique setting for a Taoist Temple surrounded by so much Spanish/Catholic influence...very quiet and hidden to meditate and just serenely enjoy the plush landscape!!!

This place is currently still in used as a religious temple but is open to the public without entrance fee. However, it is very remote. If you're a budget backpacker, using habal-habal transportation (motorbike) is not recommendable because this place is situated on a private subdivision and they are not allowed to enter so you have to walk for 10...

Interesting experience, worth the drive uphill. We rode on our own scooters, but were asked to submit our Id's upon entering the compound. The view from the temple was great, although it is not on the top of a hill, rather on the side of a valley.

Having visited many temples around Thailand and in other countries, this was simply underwhelming. There is nothing of cultural wonder here. It does offer good views though...Go if you are bored and want to get out of your hotel - only need 20min there.

If you're into culture stuff, this place is a must visit. You can enjoy Taoist culture by seeing the small sub-temples for every Taoist Gods.
