30. October 2011
If you happen to love travelling to different places around the world.
One of the must see place and country is the Divine Mercy Shrine situated in the Divine Mercy Hills, El Salvador town in Misamis Oriental province, Philippines. The place is a good site to those people seeking to find peace and reflection on their lives.
The main attraction of the Divine Mercy Shrine is a 50-foot statue of the Divine Mercy, which is considered as the tallest Divine Mercy statue in the world. The huge statue of Jesus Christ on a hill in this sleepy town, would remind you of the massive Jesus the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
Although smaller than the Jesus the Redeemer statue in Brazil, the Divine Mercy statue remains a site to behold to any tourist local or foreign. Inaugurated in 2008, the Divine Mercy Shrine is starting to become a favorite site to anyone who wish to find solace or find comfort from their busy lives.
If you happen to be a foreign tourist, you can visit the Divine Mercy Shrine by taking a plane to the Philippines. Once in the Philippines, you can take another plane towards Cagayan de Oro City.
Upon arrival in Cagayan, take a bus towards the town of El Salvador where a motorcycle will take you to the hill where the Divine Mercy Shrine can be located. So if you want to take a look at a massive statue of Jesus Christ in Asia, the Divine Mercy Shrine is the perfect tourist destination for you.
