It was time for the friends and I to go back to Manila since Sinulog Festival was done already. Before heading off the airport, we decided to roam around Cebu City one last time and savor the moment. The first stop we did was the Cebu Taoist Temple located in Lahug.

In order to reach the Taoist Temple, you will have to enter a village - this village is where prestigious people live in. And when you see the temple, it resembles the Great Wall of China. Due to the resemblance of the Great Wall, I felt like I have been to China already.

What I love about the temple is how clean and serene the place is. Non-worshippers are allowed to visit the place but they will have to follow the rules. One rule is that you are not allowed to make any noise when you are inside the altar since there are people praying to their loved ones. You are also not allowed to take any kind of photography inside the altar. When you are wearing shorts, you have to make sure that you have something to cover your legs before you get in the altar.

Truly, this kind of temple is a gem in our country.

Taoist temple is one of the itineraries that you may have when you hired a private driver. The Taoist Temple in Cebu was built in 1972 and can be located inside the subdivision. Our driver pointed houses of some prestigious individuals, including our Wedding Ring maker.

The entrance of the place is the replica of the Great Wall of China, so make sure to take your greatest snaps right away. The place was serene. Worshippers and Non-worshippers are welcome to the place, though you have to abide with their rules. No picture taking inside the altar since it is a sacred place. Tourists must minimize their noise level as well.

We spent like an hour here. We sat and savor the calmness of the place.

it was our last day in cebu city and we have to go to some famous places here. We picked Taoist Temple, we took habal habal because there are no public vehicles.

It was very peaceful and solemn.

You cant take pictures to the altar because for them it was a holy place.

I love everything about this place!

Btw, the one in the picture is where people would try to shoot coins on vases to get their wish granted. Guess what? I did it! :)

First stop in our Cebu-Bohol trip: Taoist Temple. There's really no activities that can be done except for picture taking and if you wish to kneel and ask for blessings. From La vie parisienne, you can walk to the habal habal waiting area to alight going inside the beverly hills subdivision. Upon reaching the gate, the motorcycle can no longer enter and you will have to walk for about 10-15minutes to get to the taoist temple. The temple is really fascinating. You'll feel the solemnity and peacefulness. As you climb up to its highest spot, you'll be able to see a portion of Cebu city.

We had our Cebu trip DIY. Before we reached this great place, we rode in a motorcyle so we could avoid the traffic near the area. But going in was the hardest as it was far from the main gate so we have to walked. I forgot to check what was the better way to go here and too late, no taxi passing by.

So imagine at 10am in the morning walking in the village trying to find the taoist temple. Exhausting especially when we saw the stairs that we have to go through. Hahaha! But everything was beautiful on top. So peaceful and clean. They were strict of not taking pictures inside the temple. No loud voices allowed.
It was tiring but great experience of coming here.
Thank God, there was a taxi waiting when we were done with our tour. 128522

After lunch, our taxi driver/tour guide brought us to the cebu Taoist temple in Beverly Hills. Pretty steep drive going there. Steep flight of stairs too going in.
There are many signs around the place to observe silence etc.
The complex is huge! Was only able to see like 1/4 of it (cos I don't want to climb any more stairs 128513) but definitely worth a visit when you're in cebu city.

we visited here too when we went to cebu... got tired with the stairs 128517128517128517 grabe .. ang taas..why do chinese have to put all these stairs..what's with the stairs?!!

but when we reached the top temple, I got amazed, sobrang ganda at linis sa taas, people are quiet and the area is so peaceful..
and they don't allow to take photo inside the praying area..bakit kaya?!..
My tita and cous in law bought souvenirs specially my tita who's really fan of this stuff..sobrang religious nya kulang nlng sumamba din dito..but me I didn't bought anything,
I just appreciate the beauty of the place ..that's all..

Sana gumawa din ng catholic church na ganito kataas..

kawawa namn yung matatandang chinese at mga ibang pumupunta dito, siguro pag dating sa pinakataas bka lawlaw na dila sa pagod..
but well it's a good exercise din somehow haha..

PS: this is one of the place I really want to review few days after we went to cebu kaya lang di ko maisip ang right term..and a while ago, I tried reading the feed with the 'everyone' side and saw a review of this..kaya yun na lang ni-click ko para di nko mangapa sa search hehe..thanks to her hehehe 128573128572

One of the attractions here in Cebu is Taoist Temple situated inside Beverly Hills Cebu. Yeaaaa... Beverly Hills. Must've been Paris is here. Haha! loljk. The temple is inside the village. They got other temples too tho I think it's not for tourist attraction. We got there fast since di naman kalayuan. Less than a hundred steps. Pero nakakahingal. 128514 Upon reaching the top, you could see signs telling 'no pictures inside the temple." Tamang background nalang. 128514 Security guards were also strict! My brother was playing well not really playing, he was sort of telling me to take his picture with the sign board 'wag maingay' then the guard started to talk in bisaya perhaps he said 'wag ka makulit, ibaba mo yan.' Hehe!
