A tourist attraction in Cebu City is capturing the hearts of many visitors from near and far: it is the Temple of Leah.
The Temple of Leah is located in Barangay Busay in Cebu City. It is built as a symbol of undying love and never ending devotion of Teodorico Adarna to his wife Leah Villa Albino-Adarna. This Roman inspired edifice showcases not only a labyrinthine and sophisticated architecture but also an astounding view of the whole city. There is also an art gallery and museum that features books and other valuable collectibles.
This place is perfect for picture taking especially pre-nuptial and other themed occasions. The huge lions on the entrance, the enormous pillars, the statue of angels, the fountain in the middle with naked women and the magnificent staircase truly can give a touch of the ancient Rome architecture.
Visitors come to the place for various reasons… Some just come for picture taking with friends and families, some for relaxation, others for blogging purposes, and some just to discover the place. Whatever reason one has, the place is truly a must see.
During the first few years of the temple’s operation, with just limited sight available, anyone can visit for free. Last year, the temple was temporarily closed for the public but when it opened its doors again, a fee of Php50.00 per person is now charged to every guest. They also collect certain amount per hour for pictorials like pre-nuptials. No matter how much the fee is, the pay is worth the visit.
