It was astonishing!
The temple was amazing! with breathtaking view of the whole city of Cebu with antique feeling in Rome with Greeks statues! And there is a restaurant very near just couple walks away with a hangover dine-in that overlooks and taste of breeze air!
Overall it was worth it! although entrance is little bit money but once your there... surely it will be worth it!
Temple of Leah is one of the most popular travel destinations in Cebu City and is a staple in package tours especially within the Transcentral Highway route.
Dubbed as the Philippine version of India’s Taj Mahal, Temple of Leah is erected by its owner and Ellen Adarna’s grandfather, Teodorico Adarna, as a mausoleum for his deceased wife of 53 years, Leah Villa Albino-Adarna. It is a 45-minute drive from the center of the city and is located at Landon Heights Roosevelt in Busay. Each visitor will pay Php50 upfront upon entering.
Temple of Leah is an architecture of Greco-Roman style that sits atop of a hill overlooking Cebu City. After being greeted with the view of the city skyline, visitors can go inside the 7-story mansion with 24 chambers lined with Doric columns where they will see an art gallery, museum, and a library showcasing personal effects of the late Madam Leah. The centerpiece of the building is a grand staircase leading to brass figures of angels and of the queen of the temple herself. The statue stands 10 feet tall.
This is the counter part of Cebu to India's Taj Mahal. Temple of Leah was built solely on year 2012 for Mrs. Leah Albino- Adarna from his husband Teodorico Soriano as a pure gesture of his love to her. How romantic. ❤️ They've been together for 53 years. (They are actually one of the richest family in Cebu, Philippines.)
A Roman empire era inspired tourist attraction in the heart of Cebu. Sitting at the top of the mountain over-looking the entire city.
From the statues scattered all over the venue, to the main building, to the floors, and each columns, everything screams Roman era.
Take a look at it. Visit Cebu.

You don't need to travel all the way to Rome or Greece to see a temple. Temple of Leah is a very good replica of a real temple. Going there is convenient as you can ride a motorcycle. Definitely a place worth visiting. Situated up the hills of busay. With a breathtaking view of the city.
Built-in 2012, this elaborate Roman-style temple is dedicated to Leah Villa Albino-Adarna.
The love of her husband is unbelievable. It js very touching and inspiring that can touch you heart.
A must see if you're within the area though I think there are still some opportunities to add more attractions to improve the experience. 😎
