  • Inside a very busy city lies this very peaceful and breathtaking temple. A must see and a great visit to get away from the busy traffic of Cebu/  more »
  • It is very solemn place. You need to follow the instruction in the temple. You can take pictures there but there are limitation  more »
  • A really beautiful temple overlooking the city, featuring a shop selling various things (Including water), clean restrooms, a few nice building and two areas to get a break and some shade. After a hot day, it was really a nice spot to rest and admire the city. If you are on the way to the temple of Leah, it's worth the detour.
  • If you are in to beautiful temples, this is a great place to go and see. Sitting on a hill. Good security. But be ready to climb stairs. Not for disabled. And show respect for the monks. Some places not allowed to take pictures.
