Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is somewhat a modest structure across the busy road in front of Rizal Park. Our guide advised that it is located close to the "Kilometre Zero" marker, the point from which all distances from Manila are measured. The clock is three faced and mounted on a stone pillar. It was a project undertaken by the Freemasons of the country in recognition of the Centennial of the first Philippine Republic.

Rizal Park, also known as Luneta Park, is a historical park located in the heart of Manila, Philippines. It is a popular tourist destination that offers a peaceful ambiance where visitors can relax, have picnics, and enjoy the scenic view of Manila Bay. The park features a variety of attractions, including the Rizal Monument, which honors the national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. There are also beautiful gardens and fountains, a playground for kids, and a few food stalls where visitors can grab a quick bite. The park's historical significance, combined with its picturesque surroundings and peaceful atmosphere, makes it a must-visit destination for anyone visiting Manila. Overall, Rizal Park is a beautiful and serene oasis in the middle of the bustling city that offers a glimpse of the Philippines' rich cultural heritage.

Located across the street from Rizal Park, the clock stands alone on a plaza across the street. I respect the significance to its symbolic presence commemorating PI history but the structure and its location understates that symbolic significance. It was worth crossing the street to examine up close for a minute or two while ruminating about the sacrifices made by Mr. Rizal and others for PI independence as I continued my walk to the park behind it.

Opposite the Rizal Monument and Park along Roxas Boulevard is the Centennial Masonic Clock Monument which is a three faced Bulova clock and was completed in 1998 to celebrate the centennial of the Philippine Republic. On the day that we visited it was fairly quiet so it was possible to get an unobscured view of the clock.

Close to the marker of Kilometer Zero Rizal Park, one can see the Centennial clock. It is strategically positioned for everyone to refer time. A very much helpful marker that was donated by a civic group in which the name is engraved below.

It's just a clock and was paid for by donations of members of the local Freemason Lodges and organizations which are listed on the base of the clock.

This review is quite late. The Centennial Clock is a tribute to the Filipino Freemasons, a movement that had existed during the time of our national hero.

This is one of those created attractions that might just as well be dismantled to allow greenery to flourish.

Pictures show you what it is
More meaningful to philipinos I suppose
Top tip
Avoid the horse and cart guys in Manila roxas avenue
They will try and con you
After agreeing 50 with me he was looking for 1500 after
I just got out and walked away
His buddy duly took the 60 from me
Take metered taxis only
Remember also you have to pay 550 airport tax on departure

The clock is called. Centennial because is dedicated to the fallen heroes of Philippines who gave their lives to the country. However, many sustain that most of these men were actually Freemasons which it could be true. This historical element adds more value and interest in this place where it is possible to note some Freemasonry details and symbols beautifying the clock
