On the last day of my stay in Baguio City, I decided to visit one of Baguio’s hidden secrets. The Bell Church. This Taoist Church is located at the border between Baguio city and La Trinidad, Benguet. The Bell Church is usually not included in a typical Baguio city tour offered by tour agencies. As some would call it, this church is already off the beaten track.
At first glance, I really thought I was already in heaven. The structure reminds of the beautiful Taoist Temple of Cebu. Red is the most dominant color here.
There is a large arch at the entrance with two dragons facing each other. There is also a lotus pond, and a fish pond where you can say your wish there.
Aside from the main temple, there are also pagodas located on top of the hill. Unfortunately this section is open only during weekends and holidays.
The main temple is so serene. One can have a quiet time with himself here. On the main altar, stands several gods of the Taoist faith. Picture taking is not allowed while inside the temple.
