Temple of Leah, Cebu City

#6 of 17 in Historic Sites in Cebu City
Religious Site · Tourist Spot
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 place is more than just a tourist spot. It was made out of extraordinary love and that the woman whom this structure has been made for, is depicted as a Greek goddess. A beautiful story for a beautiful place. Make sure to drop by here when you're in Cebu. Perfect for people who are into Greek mythology. Felt like I was brought to Greece.
  • Although not yet totally finished, but you can feel how majestic this place is. You also have an advantage point overlooking Cebu skyline. Hope they could open up those little museums beside.
