The Taoist Temple in Cebu City

When I first went to Cebu City, a new friend of mine took my mom and I to The Taoist Temple. Having been the first time I go inside a temple, I was both hesitant and excited. It felt like I was about to enter a new dimension where I am uninvited, where suspicious eyes would be looking at this little alien who’s wandering on their territory. (I know, I know, I’m imagining stuff. Hahaha!)

Anyway, I do not intend to write a travel guide here, rather a travelogue. *crosses fingers*

We went there at around 2PM, so the sun made all these pictures look great. I hope you’d enjoy them! 😉

Note: The Taoist Temple does not allow visitors to take photos of the temple itself and anything inside it. (It’s the one on the top part of the photo below). So most of the photos here will be just those which would be seen when you walk around the area.

This is the view on top of the stairs, just in front of the temple.

One can also notice of how “Instagrammable” every area of the Taoist Temple is. It’s not just a serene place to meditate on your life and spirituality, but also aesthetically beautiful.

These (photos below) could be seen on the main entrance below the temple.

That’s all folks! To more temples and greater things beyond this life! (:

Here’s another selfie with my favorite wall. Hahaha!
