Temple of Leah: Monument of Undying Love


Temple Of Leah, just like India's world-famous Taj Mahal, is a mesmerizing work of art built as a symbol of one man's undying love to his beloved wife. Built in 2012 by business tycoon Teodorico Adarna - the grandfather of sexy actress Ellen Adarna, this huge edifice has been appeasing its visitors with its eye-catching statues, elaborate architecture and sweeping panoramas of Cebu. While it's not as grand, gigantic and spectacular as Taj Mahal, it is a majestic sight nonetheless that will give you a taste of ancient Rome and Greece.

As you step inside the temple, you will feel like you are being transported into a European haven. With its intricate sculptures, wondrous floor design and high pillars, this place will leave your eyes wandering, and give you an urge to snap a million of photographs. What's more, it offers outstanding overlooking views of the city, which for me is the best part of my visit to this place.

And, there's a lot more to do in Temple of Leah, besides sightseeing and snapping photos. After all, the temple has a museum, gallery and a library wherein all of Leah Villa Albino-Adarna's favorite things are stored. Plus, the place has a few tables and chairs where you can nibble on some snacks as well as enjoy a drink, while admiring the incredible scenery.
