The illustrious looking castle-temple of Simala Shrine affords visitors prayer and service all year, along with views of impressive architecture. The unusual site contains elevated walkways into the grandiose church, a large statue of Mary, and ample grounds to stroll around. Visitors can purchase candles and light them in prayer, with various colors of candles representing specific types of prayer. Remember to dress respectably when visiting the shrine, and resist the temptation to take flash photography, which is prohibited. A visit to Simala Shrine represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Sibonga trip itinerary builder to plot your vacation.
