Temple of Leah, Cebu City
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Explore Temple of Leah, a tribute to unconditional love whose design was inspired by Greek mythology. Teodorico Adarna built the mansion in 2012 as a symbol of his undying love for his wife, with the temple boasting a museum, a library, and an art gallery. The mansion also offers incredible views over the surrounding area, which you can enjoy by climbing the stairs. Figures of lions guard each of the paths leading to these views. While climbing the grand stairs, take a photo of the brass angel figures that you'll see along the way. Keep an eye out for the 3 m (10 ft) tall statue of the queen of the temple, which depicts her wearing a crown and a flower.

This one of the newest destination in Cebu City that the tourist is being crazy about. It is a greek inspired architecture telling the love story of the parents of one of the philippine celebrity. What make this destination unique is the breath taking view of Cebu's skyline.
A must see if you can. The masonry work is outstanding, and the views are one if a kind. You can see all the way to Mactan Island.

Beautiful ambience and unique architecture, the Temple of Leah is one man's testament to the love of his life. Thought currently in an ongoing state of construction, there are plenty of photogenic nooks and crannies to take memorable photos at. The view over the city is also breath taking, simply put a panoramic view that takes you away from it all.
It is nearly Two years since I discovered this place. It was amazing then. I've not been in the Philippines for 18 months and never seen lighting as in the photo. If you are in Cebu go and find it, with your camera! There is the traditional Sari-Sari with a stunning view and cold Beer.
