Cebu Taoist Temple

Lahug, Cebu City. 11:00 a.m. we went to the Taoist Temple of Cebu. It’s a Chinese temple opened to the public since 1972. Its architectural design was basically based on Chinese architecture and positions. As we entered into the premise, there was no entrance fee and the only expense to enjoy the Taoist Temple is your fare getting in there for approximately 60 pesos (1.50 USD) from the city.

One of the most unforgettable experiences I had in there was the violation of the institution rules.It is prohibited to take pictures inside the sacred room and no selfies allowed even at doors. At first, we didn’t know that taking pictures was prohibited so we took a selfie. To my surprise, one of the guards approached me with an angry look and said to delete the selfie we took.It was a complete shock on my part because I wasn’t prepared for it. So he insisted to look at my phone and see if I already deleted it.I deleted the picture so that no more conflicts would arise.

Inside the temple, there are places where you can pray (if you are Chinese or Taoist), a place to wish by throwing coins on the well and a place where you can just sit and reflect in silence. The experience was fun, the weather was good, and the place was worth remembering.
