Temple of Leah in Cebu City – Important Things You Need to Know (updated 2020)

A lot of travelers who are visiting Cebu City normally include temple of Leah as one of their destinations. However, in early March of this year (prior to Metro Manila Lockdown), it was closed. Detailed news from Inquirer about this case can be found here.

After this pandemic, this temple might not be called “Temple of Leah” anymore and we’ll update this post for any updates about the situation.

How to get there

You can go Temple of Leah by riding a taxi (or Grab). The price will depend on the traffic condition and of course, your destination.

You can also ride via habal-habal. I paid PHP 100 (this may vary). You can find these habal-habal in JY Square in Lahug.

Travel Time: 15-20 minutes

To go back to your destination, there are habal-habal in Temple of Leah, waiting 🙂
