The temple is 110 meters above sea-level so provides great views of the near-by region. There is 81 steps to climb up which represents the 81 verses of Taoist scripture.

Get Started

HOW TO GET THERE

OPTION 1

Entry Point is in Mactan Cebu Airport.

Ride a Mybus from Mactan Cebu to SM Cebu City. Fare is around  40 PHP  ( SGD 1 ,$0.8, € 0.7). Travel time is around 30mins to 1 hr

Then, Ride a jeep with a route code 04L. Stop at an intersection near SUDLON Lahug, Cebu City. Be sure to tell the conductor of the jeep or the driver that you will alight at the road that leads to Taoist Temple ( see map for reference ) . Fare is around  8 PHP  ( SGD 0.2 ,$0.15, € 0.12). Travel time is around 20mins to 45mins (depends on the traffic).

Then, ride a Habal-Habal (local term of a motorcycle for hire). You can easily locate the Habal-Habal drivers because they are shouting Taoist Temple, Sirao or Temple of Leah or in my case, they will ask you.
