May 2017: Cebu Taoist Temple

While I was scrolling on my phone trying to back up all my files from my dying phone I saw this set of photos from last year which I haven’t shared in any of my social networking sites. So I thought why not share these beautiful photos here on my blog instead.

This was taken May last year when my mama’s older sister and her daughter went home to Cebu for a week vacation. The last time my aunt went home to Cebu was almost 9 years ago, she can’t barely speak our language anymore (Bisaya) and for my cousin Pam it’s her first time. One of the places we visit during their visit was Cebu’s famous landmark – Cebu Taoist Temple. It is my second time to visit and still I am in love with this temple. Reminds me of Asian dramas/movies set in ancient times.

The Taoist Temple was built by the Cebu’s Chinese community back in 1972. It is the center of worship for Taoism, the religion which follows the teaching of the ancient Chinese philosopher, Lao Zi. Non-worshipers are also welcome to visit. When visiting it is important to remember that the temple is still a place of worship, taking photos inside the prayer area is not allowed. It is located in Beverly Hills Subdivision, Lahug, which is in the topmost area where you can see a beautiful panoramic view of the city of Cebu.

On this trip, we also visited Sirao Garden and Temple of Leah which photos I haven’t sorted yet (Will share more about it when I do finish backing up my files). It was a short and tiring trip but we all love all the place we been to. I hope that this summer we can go on another road trip this time going to the end of Cebu in the south.

That’s it, for now, thanks again for visiting my blog. See you next time.
