The temple was built as a symbol of Mr. Teodorico Adarna’s undying love and ceaseless devotion to his wife, Leah. Temple of Leah became an instant domestic tourist attraction as it interestingly resembles ancient pantheons. The spot also gives a great view of Metro Cebu – overlooking the cities of Cebu, Mandaue and Lapu-lapu. On the west balcony of Temple of Leah, you can get a glimpse of Cebu City’s highlands. The view and the ala ancient feel of Temple of Leah are the reasons why tourists drop by the attraction.
The construction of Temple of Leah started in 2012 and to this date, the estate is still undergoing development. As of August 7, 2015, Temple of Leah management charges 50PhP entrance fee per guest and 2,500PhP venue fee for professional photography for wedding and events.
The best time to visit is at around 3PM-4PM, when its not that scorching hot anymore. And then after, you can have dinner at Lantaw Busay. 🙂
And yes, restrooms are found on the lower flow of the west wing or the left side of the building (your right side when your facing the structure.) Teehee,
