It is located behind the Malate church. You will find alot of people sleeping on bench in the park. In the centre there is a statue of Raja Sulayman. In the evening people will be doing exercise at the place. Be a bit cautious as this place you will find snatch and pickpockets.

Nothing much to see in the Park or what they call a plaza. Be cautious of petty thieves around. Actually you can include visiting this place with Malate Catholic Church across and Aristocrat's Restaurant(Filipino food) right beside it and Manila Bay in one visit.

A park located in front of Malate Church. It was along Roxas Boulevard located right beside Aristocrat if you are facing to the area going to Luneta Park. It’s easy to identify, there’s a monument of Raja Sulayman and then a huge fountain. This park was commonly used during New year countdown.

This small park just across Malate church is frequently used during christmas or new year celebrations by big tv networks. Some small events like fitness programs are done here usually every weekends. And apart from the huge fountain thats seldom in use, this place doesnt serve any purpose except for the bad elements. What might be a small busy park... More

My friend brought me to see the Park, to see the influence of the Arabs in Philippines, and was quite a surprise to me. Its a simple remembrance for the short lifted rule in the history of Philippines. You can further see the remain of the site where he used to ruled in the Intramuros.

Its just the fountain named after a person with high profile, nothing to see much in it. This is a good hang out if your doing something like photo shoot. Most of the time this area is being used for programs, new year or christmas season or whatever program they can think off. It is good landmark in Manila but... More

Plaza Raja Sulayman is easy to find because it is situated in front of Malate Church and Roxas Boulevard, also near in Aristocrat Restaurant. There's nothing to see here aside from the statue. Some concerts and events are also held in here.

it's a good place to walk around and sit by the fountain and watch the sunset and sunrise. but at njght time it become a little scary because of beggars around and sometimes snatcher. in short, the place is ok if there are enough light and security guard around and no beggars . it's a park you are suppose to...
