A modern church with an eccentric architecture, Christ the King Cathedral is Tagum's main church. Masses are heard here daily. The church actually resembles a castle from afar. It has also become a tourist and religius destination in the city.

This Catholic church has masses in English, Visayan and Tagalog. Its claim to fame is the worlds biggest prayer beads as certified by the Guinness Book of Records. Painted black each wooden bead is linked by a chain, located at the rear of the church. The church is large but if you want to stay cool sit at the sides... More

One of the incredible sites is the Christ the King Cathedral which has a unique design because the front looks a modern 4 story building while the back portion looks like a castle. This... More

Peaceful, and unique... I was told the Cathedral was built only a few years ago, but it is very "Art Deco" in style, and looks as though it might have been built almost a hundred years ago. I think it is a beautiful building, and there is a well tended garden, with the Stations of the Cross. Visiting this fine... More

It was a nice experience coming to this cathedral attending the mass for the first time and some other times, attending a wedding twice. But only lately when i went around the vicinity of this beautiful and serene place of worship that i saw its exceptional beauty. The back portion is like a castle different from the facade.

This splendid cathedral was built about ten years ago and it is clear they were willing to spend a great deal of money on it. This cathedral is designed around the fact that it is dedicated to Christ the King. When I parked in the back of the cathedral, its castle-like motif was evident there. Inside a large statue of...
