Temple of Leah: Cebu’s Roman styled Temple

Built-in 2012 to honor the undying love and devotion of Teodorico Soriano Adarna to his wife Leah Villa Albino-Adarna, The Temple of Leah is such a beauty to behold. Though designs were inspired from Roman Structures, this is constructed from modern materials of concrete and woods, reinforced with steel frames.

There are many ways you can go to the site but there are two common ways to get there and it’s either by using your own private vehicle or by commuting. Well, of course, you can find your way if you own a car so let’s talk a bit more on getting your way up there by commuting form public transportation. First is you need to make JY Square Mall as your reference since it is the nearest and a pretty well-known establishment from the Temple. You may ride a “motorcycle-for-hire” or “habal-habal” as a local term but make sure that you and the driver agreed on how you will going to pay him before hopping in for a trip. You may also grab a taxi but I do not recommend it since its a bit expensive. Usually, this round trip would cost you around Php 800.00 or USD 16.00. That’s a pain on your wallet unless you’re rich (which doesn’t make sense because you can rent a car for a day if you are a tourist or just by one if you live in the city).

The Temple opens daily from 6 AM and closes at 11 PM. Parking Fee is Php 100 inside the premises but it’s Free if parked outside. However, only limited slots are available so better be early. Entrance fee is Php 50 per head, below 10 years old are FREE. Yes, FOR FREE! You can enjoy the vicinity and the city view. You may also take pictures for your social media accounts and more. HAPPY TRAILS!
