    Visiting the Taoist Temple in Cebu was such an amazing experience. As soon as I arrived, I was immediately struck by the peaceful atmosphere and the stunning architecture. The prayer halls were serene, and I found myself taking a moment to reflect and connect with my spirituality. Lighting incense and making wishes felt incredibly meaningful and personal.

    Cebu City Tour
    We joined a Cebu City Tour and one of the destination is the Taoist Temple. There is no dress code that is being followed since we wore shorts and sandals. But I think you need to wear appropriate clothing. There are areas that you're not allowed to take photos especially Altars, statues and altar backgrounds. You can start from the top portion or from the gate of parking. There's no entrance fee but you will pay parking before going inside the subdivision.

    Impressive Temple to visit
    Taoist Temple is located outside the city so you probably need to get there by taxi, free to enter, although you need to wear a face mask. Visually stunning to see and walk around, temple has a couple of components to it so take your time and enjoy, main shrine no photos allowed, but OK for the rest of the site. A few stairs to walk up at the start to get to temple, so if you have mobility issues maybe a problem.

    Overrated tourist trap
    A long steep hike. Mask rules in place in temple. No pictures in the temple. It felt like an obvious tourist trap. Overrated, very average. Had I known, I wouldn’t have gone. I wouldn’t go again or tell anyone to go.

The Taoist Temple is a great place with beautiful subjects for many good photos. However, it is not allowed to take pictures from the prayer rooms, so show respect - there is much else to see and take pictures of. Free entry is a plus, and if you haven't been there before, it's definitely worth a visit.

Free entrance with allotted parking space for visitors. You just have to make sure that your knees are prepared for their stairs, one of the visitors I saw as an elderly and they did not proceed because it's too high and they got tired in the middle so they let their young adults go to the temple on their own. I can say that it's worth it once you reach the top, you'll see a beautiful view and the architecture is really admiring but also please respect the rules as it's a place of worship. There's also an assigned police in the area when we went there.

This is worth a visit and a climb – its surprisingly steep. Its an impressive building and series of praying areas. Tourists are encouraged to visit but there is very little information about the temple or the religion, the only interaction is with the somewhat authorisation temple helpers holding up signs to ask you to wear a face mask (really? - and its outdoors when its not legal requirement).

I would have welcomed an explanation of the “kidney beans”, which provides a yes, no, maybe answer to a question you pose, but at first sight, it does seem to be merely an example of probability theory rather than evidence of a higher being.

While I enjoyed my visit, you can see the entire thing in about ten minutes. I wasn’t allowed in the temple itself because I was wearing shorts and my shoulda were exposed, so if you want to enter this is something to be mindful of. It was alright but there are definitely better things to see/spend your money and time on.
