Taoist Temple in Cebu

Taoist Temple in Cebu

The Taoist temple, a place for meditation, is located in Beverly Hills Subdivision, Lahug, Cebu. The taoist which is built on a hillside has a towering multi-tiered attraction. Because the temple is open to both worshipers and non-worshipers, it has now become a tourist attraction in Cebu.

Inside the subdivision, there’s also a neighboring Phu Shian Temple but it’s not open to the public.

Going to Taoist Temple

In Lahug, just near to JY Square, you will see a small road and a bridge in the right. From there you have three options:

  • Take a taxi
  • Ride a motorcycle – If you ride a motorcylce, the payment is 10 pesos. However, motorcycles are not allowed to enter Beverly Hills. So from the entrance, you will need to walk to taoist temple. But that’s not a problem because the temple is not that far from the entrance. Also, you will get a nice view when you walk there. The air is cool, the place is quiet and calm, and the houses are beautiful.
  • Walk – If you’re a person who is used to walking, then this is a good option for you. But if you’re a person who gets tired easily, this may not be the best option for you. In the temple, there are many stairs that you will have to climb in order to see the other views so you might want to save some energy.

If you have your own vehicle, you may also bring it since they have a big parking lot.

You will need to climb some stairs before you get to see the temple. There’s a myth that if you climb and count the 81 steps of the stairs, you can make a wish. Although the place is open to the public, tourists are still strictly advised to remain silent. It is also prohibited to take photos of the saints and to make the temple as a background photo.
