  • Share this:

Want to know a bit about Cebu’s history and religion while getting a touch of the beauty of nature? The symbols of a story and its connection to the path through life!

There is a sanctuary accessible to both believers and non-worshippers where you can find a chapel, library, gift store, and wishing well. Additionally, it offers a sizable balcony with views of the city as you enter the facsimile of the Great Wall of China near the temple’s entrance. Cebu Taoist Temple was built by the Chinese Taoism community in 1972 which is located in Beverly Hills Subdivision of Cebu City.

Taoism, a religion that adheres to the teachings of the historic Chinese philosopher Lao Zi, has its focus on devotion to the Taoist Temple in which the worshippers carry out rites. It is made up of two different shrines: the main, which is 270 meters above sea level, and the Phu Sian Temple, that was constructed by another Chinese group but is not accessible to the general public. Taoist adherents would undoubtedly understand what the 81 steps entail. The 81 indicates or symbolizes the 81 Chapters of text that implies your progress through the levels inside the religion’s holy text.

Aside from the religious history, Taoist Temple is famous for its amazing scenery!

Unwind and perhaps get your tension relieved by visiting its religious monuments, artwork, and dragons. In addition to the hillside gardens, the property is surrounded by open, tranquil greenery, which contributes to the restorative effects of the city’s skyline and the azure lake separating the capital from Mactan Island.
