I’ve been to the Bell Church in Baguio City once in the mid-1990s. I remember my family and relatives going into the temple, lighting some candles and getting some fortune. This is a bit weird but up to now, I still recall my sister’s fortune: if she misplaced something, look to the south. I don’t really find the Taoist practices intriguing but I marveled instead at the extensive hillside garden with lots of paths and staircases to the east of the temple (barely seen in Google Maps).
The Bell Church is not high in the list of the top tourist destinations in Baguio but it is well worth a visit if you’re tired of shopping in SM City Baguio or strolling in Burnham Park. It can be found along the road going to the strawberry fields of La Trinidad right at the boundary of Baguio City. It should be easy to find: the entrance to the temple is marked by a wide rectangular arch topped with two dragons across a short bridge over a canal and along a sharp corner of the said road. (Whew! What a mouthful!)
