Good place to visit while at La Union. Not so many people come here during weekdays. Since it's a temple, the silence is serene and the view emphasizes the height of the structure.

Went here with my hubby and kids and though it’s a temple, the view for them is magnificent. If you’re around, don’t forget to pay it a visit.

Good place to drop by if you want to offer a sincere prayer with an offering and some incense. Their balcony offers a view of the ocean but then the bit of the town's congestion obstructs the beauty. Still a good stopover if you're just...More
