Taoist Temple: Cebu City Tourist Destination

     Another tourist destination in Cebu City is the Taoist Temple. It is located in Beverly Hills, Lahug, Cebu City. This temple was built in 1972 by the Chinese community in Cebu.

     The place is not recommended to those people who have heart problems because the temple is situated 300 meters above sea level and you need to climb the 81 steps. They said the 81 steps represent the 81 chapters of Taoism scriptures.

     Taoist temple is open to all, worshipers and non-worshipers and no entrance fee. They only ask that you must observe silence inside the temple and they prohibited taking pictures in front of their saints.

     In the temple, you could see a sculpture of a dragon and you can take picture in there, and they also have a small replica of the great wall of China. You can see a beautiful scenery below and the sea in front.

     Actually, this temple is the center of worship for Taoism, the religion which follows the teaching of the ancient Chinese Philosopher, Lao Zi.

     If you are in Cebu, don't miss to visit the Taoist Temple, and discover the Philippines because it's More Fun in the Philippines.
