The Taoist Temple in Cebu City is easily one of the places that you will love to take pictures of – with its colorful temples, structures and oriental figurines that clearly showcase the best in Chinese architecture. It’s actually not just one temple (as its name suggests), but a number of temples nestled inside a wealthy subdivision named Beverly Hills. It is the center of worship for Cebu’s Chinese community, that’s why when AJ and I went there as part of our Cebu itinerary, we were ever so mindful of the worshipers paying their respects inside the temples.
From the gate entrance, AJ and I have to climb the 99 steps see this majestic view:
The climb was all worth it. We were rewarded with these colorful oriental sights, plus nice view of Cebu City, too:
I used my Panasonic Lumix LX5 for these photos, and got that Lomo-ish effect through Google’s Picasa =) I just love the burst of colors!
Cebu’s Taoist Temple is located inside Beverly Hills subdivision, and to get there just take a cab from anywhere in Cebu City =)
