Many new adventures took place last summer. This included our Cebu trip last April 24 to 29, 2017. On our first day in Cebu (April 24), we went to the Temple of Leah, a mansion built by Teodorico Adarna for his wife, Leah (thus the namesake of the place).

Located in Busay, Cebu, the Temple of Leah features Greek and Roman architectural styles. The place has also been considered as the Taj Mahal of the Philippines. Inside the “temple”, there is a large golden statue of Leah, and beside it is the family tree of the Adarna family, which includes famous actress Ellen Adarna. Also, Cebu’s skyline can be seen from the mansion.

Temple of Leah is open from 6 AM to 11 PM. We visited the place at around 5 PM. The entrance rate is at 50 pesos. Although it is a little far from the city (as it is located on top of a mountain), I would still recommend that you pay this place a visit if you ever find yourself travelling in Cebu. The views are definitely amazing! Plus there are lots of spots where you could take good pictures.


Of course, I could never leave a place in my travels if I don’t take pictures of it. Here are some shots that I took (unless stated otherwise):

Many people visit the place, especially during weekends.
