Im guessing this is a Taoist temple. It stood out amongst the city buildings and residential streets in the heart of urban Manila. The walls around it were absolutely sky high. Fortunately, I noticed that the gates were wide open and there was no one on site. It seemed abandoned or under repair but I sneaked in even after reading the “Big Dogs On Guard” sign…. And it was worth the risk, I think.
