Love indeed evolves in many forms, but at the end of the day, Love knows no bound.
Temple of Leah
Our family’s recent trip to Cebu ushered us in a place where Love is grand and I meant it literally.
Tops in Busay, Cebu is considered the highest place a four wheel vehicle can reach, most tourist and visitors include the place in their itinerary to get a 180 degree view of Cebu. There are several dining destination that would allow you to revel Cebu’s city and greenery.
A new destination in Busay will awe visitors, Temple of Leah sprawls in grandeur along the mountain side and gives you the feeling of being transported into the medieval era in Rome.
Construction began in 2012, few years after the death of Leah Villa Albino-Adarna. The temple is a gift of undying love from her husband Teodoro S. Adarna, Tycoon of the Queensland hotel chain. Envisioned to be a Landmark in Cebu and a place where the future Adarna’s can trace their roots and feel the love that surrounds their family.
Though the whole structure is yet to be completed, it has started to attract thousands of visitors, all curious and already amazed by what the temple has to offer.
Inside the temple lies the 9-foot gold statue of Leah, which represents her composure and regal bearing at the time she was crowned as the Matron Queen by her Alma Mater, University of Southern Philippines.
To date, there have been several soon to be wed couples who had their pre-nup photos taken here, all hoping to achieve the same eternal love for each other.
An entrance fee of P50/ adult is collected on the entrance (this would help defray cost of maintenance) while children gets free entance.
For those who have their own vehicle, you just have to key in Temple of Leah in your GPS and follow the map. Others may join the regular shuttle plying to and from the Temple from Cebu IT Park in Lahug ( near Jollibee).
