Outside Lon Wa temple

Lon Wa or Long Hua, which means “Temple of the Dragon“, is home to Kung Fu monks and nuns of the Philippine Academy of Shakya, a Buddhist religion movement. This a must-see tourist attraction in Davao City. It is one of the biggest Buddhist temples in the Philippines and the biggest in Mindanao.




It is located along J.P. Cabaguio Avenue in Agdao District, some 3 to 4 kilometers northeast of the center of Davao City.
