Taoist Temple

The Taoist Temple is constructed in a highly ornate style that is typical of Chinese religious architecture.

The Taoist Temple is a concrete reminder of the well-established Chinese Community in Cebu City, who has contributed much to the industrialisation of Cebu. The temple was built in 1964 and is a classic example of Chinese architecture.

Everyday people climb its 81 steps (representing the 81 chapters of Taoism scriptures) to light joss sticks and have their fortune read. The temple has an elevation of 300 meters above sea level with a panoramic view of Cebu City and the harbour.
