“Holy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

My family and I with my only love as promised when he arrived to the city visited Big Jesus. It is really divine. From the foot going up you will feel the heaviness and grasping of breath; But when you reach the Big Jesus you wont feel that anymore they will be gone so suddenly.... we experienced it I too myself. So, brothers and sisters have FAITH...

There the Holy Water is overflowing... you can bring your own container also. And also don't forget to share your blessings heartily...

I feel so blessed that we were able to step where the DIVINE MERCY was raised (CDO) so as my family and together with my only love gift from Big Jesus. He answered my prayers and he will answer yours too all of us , just faith hope and love.

“a solemn/holy place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

the place is really worth visiting for specially if you are devoted to the divine mercy but even if you are not it is still very recommended. the place is not that near to the city proper so it is advisable if you have your own car or a taxi. if you are there respect the place. attend the mass and after that you can now went to the divine mercy but with a few minutes of seminar or lecture. the girls are required to wear a skirt which they provide if you haven`t wearing any if you are ready to go to the top of the divine mercy statue. be ready to walk on a steep stairs but if you`re already on top you will be relief just like your in heaven. you can see a great view up there.

“Amazing Statue of Divine Mercy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We went in the morning to avoid the heat but the stairway to the top was closed.
It is amazing to see the Divine Mercy Shrine statue as you climbed up to about 100 steps.
I was hoping to see it up close but the stairway was closed. Took some pictures and lighted candles and prayed. Be sure to wear skirts and shirts with sleeves for they are quite strict,
but they will lend you right there if ever you're in shorts or pants.
