Temple of Leah

Temple built of/ for love.

Located on top of the hill in barangay Busay in Cebu City. It is seven storeys high, and covers a land area of more than 5,000 square meters.

 It was built as a symbol of love of Teodorico Adarna to his wife Leah Villa Albino-Adarna (grandparents of actress Ellen Adarna). The place showcases a Roman inspired architecture and a platform that gives a beautiful view of Cebu City, Mandaue and Lapu-lapu.

My husband was excited to visit the place to see 24 chambers that holds the art gallery and museum that contains collection from antiques to a library of books. Unfortunately, visitors were not allowed because of the ongoing renovation and construction.

It was still a worthwhile visit. 👍🏻

It was interesting to know how love can compel a person to build a temple that can stand for generations and be a symbol of his devotion to his wife and family.
