Polian Buddhist Temple in Davao City

In Quirino Avenue is a high-fenced property with the distinctive arched rooftop – the Polian Temple. And since it was the Chinese New Year, I’ve never been to a Chinese temple in Davao City and so I snatched the opportunity to go to Polian Temple.  It was built through the efforts of the Chinese community led by Lim Pi in the 1960s and has since been the refuge for prayers of Davao Buddhists, and even the Christianized ones who have grown up running around the small manicured garden of the temple. Like any Buddhist temple, there were the two kidney shaped wood that you will hold in each hand and drop to see if you have the permission to go ahead and shake the container full of bamboo sticks, to seek guidance from the centuries old wisdom of the Buddha.
