We were not really sure to have this place be visited when we went to Davao. But to our surprise, this should be in your list! People are here are very accommodating. Worthy of your time!

A small but extremely beautiful Temple. I personally love temples and this one is absolutely lovely. I spent time meditating and completely enjoyed my relaxing visit. Take the time the talk with the monks - worth every moment.

Travellers on a tight budget can skip this place. There's not much to see and do except for some photo ops.

Lon Wa temple provides an insight on another religion. Appreciate the articulate woodwork. Our group had the opportunity to explore inside the temple. Lucky that we were allowed inside.

Nothing much to say about this place. It was a temple :) When we went there a bunch of people was praying. Since I was already in Davao I decided to visit this place.
