Cebu’s Taoist Temple

The Philippines' assorted variety has enabled the nation to grow, enhance and form into what it is today. We live in a nation with a solid Catholic foundation but then we welcome those whose sees are excessively not the same as our own: Taoism. 

History of the Taoist Temple 

Up right up 'til today, we appreciate a brisk visit to Cebu's Taoist sanctuary. Never is there a city visit nor a school field trip without dropping by the Chinese-fabricated place of worship. Developed in the mid 70's, this specific place of supplication was worked by the Chinese people group in Cebu who rehearsed Taoism– a religion and rationality in acquiescence to the lessons of Lao Tzu. 

Lao Tzu, the dad of Taoism, was a scholar and an essayist, who later turned into a god in the Chinese culture. Since the Philippines was attacked by the Chinese in the prior years, a trace of their prosperous culture and convention was adjusted by the Filipino individuals. 

This does exclude the religion, however, since the nation is solid in its Christian confidence. In any case, regardless we regard and welcome our disparities in humanities with the neighboring nations. All things considered, the country won't be what we are today if not due to the different and beautiful history that we have in our impressions. 

Vacationers and local people alike visit the sanctuary not on the grounds that they practice Taoism, but rather in light of the fact that the structure has been a notable city fascination. Indeed, even non-rehearsing religious are welcome. Beside its religious piece, more motivations to visit are the building plan, the very much kept up greeneries and the perspective of the whole city. 

As we as a whole know, the Chinese are exceptionally sharp as far as symbols with implications. These convictions are clearly unmistakable in the entire sanctuary structure. With the forceful snakes guarding the entryways, you would feel like you are in China!

Reminders

Dress appropriately. The Taoist temple is a sacred place for the religious. If you are going to visit, make sure to respect the guidelines by not wearing indecent clothing such as sleeveless tops, skirts, shorts, slippers, and others. Cover up!

Observe silence at all times. People are praying, observing and meditating. It is not the right avenue for you to take jump shots or to chit-chat.

Do not take photos (nor selfies) of the altar and prayer rooms. You may take photographs of the temple outside.

No eating inside the temple.

Do not spend too much time in the prayer room as people are waiting to come in. Once you are done with your session head back right away.

How to get there:

The Taoist temple is located in Beverly Hills Subdivision, Lahug, Cebu City. Because it is inside a private subdivision, only private vehicles and cabs can get inside. If you have no private ride to get there, hail a habal-habal from J.Y. Square and tell the driver to drop you off the temple.

You can also take 04L to the subdivision entrance. Get off at the entrance of the subdivision and walk your way to the worship place.
