Okay, this post has been in my draft for 7 months. Haha! I was thinking of discarding this but how can I share the beauty of this place if I will just delete this. Hmmm.. and besides this is my online diary and I want to document every travel I made as much as possible. So much for the explanation. By the way, I visited this temple October of 2015 and I haven’t visited the place again. So, just enjoy the pictures folks! 😉
They say love can move mountains. Well, nothing is really impossible with love and you’ll be amazed on what love can do. Just like this temple in Cebu that was built out of love, the Temple of Leah.
This temple is not only known for being a tribute of love but it is also one of the famous attraction in Cebu because of its Roman Architecture.
Feels like I entered a time machine and was transported way back the Roman era.
Another reason to visit this place is its perfect location. Situated on the top of the mountain and you get to have a spectacular view of Cebu.
The temple is guarded by two statue of lions on its side.
Enough with the outside, let me take you to the interiors of the temple..
So you might wonder, who is this man who built this spectacular temple for his wife? He is Teodorico Adarna, a businessman that owns the Queensland chain of motel, and the grandfather of the actress, Ellen Adarna, build the temple for his late wife, Leah Albino Adarna. So cheesy, right? LOL.
As of October 2015, the temple is not yet fully done. There were some areas that is still under construction. I would love to be back once it was all finished!
How to get there:
This temple is located at the mountain of Brgy. Busay, Cebu, near the Mountainview Resort and Lantaw Native Restaurant. By commute, you can take a ride going to JY Mall and from there, ride a motorcycle (habal-habal) that would take you up to the mountain of Busay.
Again, those fees were as of October 2015.
’til my next post! 🙂
