The Prayer mountain is a bit far from the city proper. You need to have an appointment and pay the entrance fee at the Jose Maria College to set a schedule of visit. There are rules when inside. The place is nice, green and refreshing. A nice place to meditate and relax for a few hours. Food is inclusive of... More

After a little more than a year I get to revisit this paradise. We opted to get a plate in lunch. Chicken was dry. Noodles tasted ok. But it was their dessert that gave them a saving grace. It's your typical sweetened banana but was very flavorful with plenty of cheese. The whole place was still very well maintained.

Pro: The whole scenery is lovely and the people are nice to you. The tour guide that was assigned to us was quite welcoming as well. She led us to the great spots of the place. Cons: They keep on asking for donation. I don't mind giving some help at all but they keep on handing you envelopes for you... More

I never wanted to go here but my mom already bookes us tickets for christmas. The place is nice, yah, but they will squeeze every penny you have. Starting from their entrance fee of 150/pax. Then the 1st security guard that greeted us at the entrance handed us an envelope asking for "pinaskohan". Then at the coffee shop after the... More

European ambiance with fresh air... I am with my son Agila when I came here. Just a suggestion. If your planning to multi place here in calinan ang your planning to visit Malagos Garden. I will suggest that you schedule your visit in Malagos first then after that here in Eden Restored. Eden easily overlap the beauty of Malagos. But... More

The100 yard road to the parking area is fit only for off-roaders. Piped music played everywhere. Disabled facilities are poor, my father was so looking forward to the visit but spent the duration in the coffee shop as it was not suitable for a disability scooter as too many steps.

I heard a lot of good things about the "Prayer Mountain" in Tamayong. I became curious so I included it in one of our itineraries when my family went to Davao. Tamayong is a bit far from Davao City but the distance wouldn't matter once you see the place. It's all worth the visit. Your eyes would feast on looking... More

Directions from downtown: Ride a jeep to Bangkerohan market. Look for Calinan-bound L300 vans and pay 45php. Tell the driver that you will go to Quiboloy. The ride from downtown Davao to Calinan is about an hour. Get off at Botika Carina in Calinan where habal habals going to Philippine Eagle Center are parked. Tell the driver to take you... More
