Ma-Cho Temple is located at the town of San Fernando near Partas bus terminal. It's a taoist temple at the heart of San Fernando City. The place is clean, and peaceful. You have to observe silence in this area and respect the rituals they're doing. They have a great sunset view of San Fernando it's just that we failed to make it there by sunset. But worth a drop by for some photo ops.

Breathtaking: from all the stairs, climbing, and of course the view!

This is only a short jeepney ride from San Juan to San Fernando. The place is a quiet Taoist temple and they say you can make a wish when you reach the top!

The garden is beautifully adorned with bamboo plants and sculptures of their gods. The intricate details of the structure made the walk really worth it.

Make sure to drop by this place when you just want to spend a chill day in LU.

Adios!

Back again & I can't get over how beautiful & serene it is ...

Come here to find some answers ... and answers I did receive .... This is not a good year for the ox, goat, dog, snakes & chicken i was told ... Nothing wrong to ask for guidance & plan ahead .

On the 15th day of January of the lunar calendar ... They hv a celebration blessing the devotees that might fall on the said zodiacs to ask for a more fruitful year away from sickness & misfortune... a little offering & pray over ... a little incense burning & everyone go home happy & feeling blessed128591

Peace of mind is priceless

Beautiful temple located in the city of la Union , well maintained , airy & said to be very miraculous in helping and granting the wishes of the devotees

Majestic views overlooking the sea...it was told that macho is the guardian of the seafarers

With an elevation of 70 above sea level, the temple is a towering (about 7 stories), 11-tiered, multi-hued attraction on a more than one hectare of lot

A ritual among devotees is where one prays to the gods to grant one's wish. Weekly, a “Buyong” session is held as temple priests read Ma Cho’s message to the devotees.

The temple is adorned by Chinese motif of Taipei lions and dragons (camphor woods) and massive stones. Its original spider type dome awes the beholder with the interlinking wood carvings of saints (piling up in a total of 11 tiers).
