Temple of Leah – Cebu, Philippines

One of our stop was Temple of Leah.

The temple was constructed in the year 2012. It was built as a symbol of the undying love and ceaseless devotion of Teodorico Soriano Adarna to his wife for 53 years, Leah Villa Albino-Adarna. Business Tycoon, Teodorico Adarna (Grandfather of actress Ellen Adarna and owner of Queensland Motels) constructed this huge edifice for his late wife, Leah Albino-Adarna.

We had a great time at the Temple of Leah. It wasn’t busy at all. There was probably 1 employee working there at the entrance gate at that time, but I wanted to know more about the history of the temple without looking at it online. There was a bunch of rooms that looked like storages. Some has statues inside and other miscellaneous things.
