No visit to region 10 would be complete without dropping by this latest attraction located in El Salvador, very near the new Lagunduingan airport. For the religious and highly spiritual, this is a major pilgrimage site to include in your rounds. The statue itself is quite awesome, for its sheer size and the way it stands up to sky, where...

The giant statue of the Divine Mercy is impressive yet, and a wonder of engineering. But its not what draws people in - the spirit of the place does. The healing spirit pervades the place, the faith of the people, the sanctity of the journey. God is the host there. No one else.

It was my first time to celebrate the Feast of Divine Mercy and it was very successful as my friends and whole family are with me during that memorable event. It was estimated that 87,000 people came to participate the feast in the shrine originating from different parts of the world. May it be on an eventful day or a... More

When you get there, girls need to wear a clothing to cover their legs since it is considered as a sacred place. There is a miracle water that you can drink and bring home. There is a mini seminar before you... More

We have to wear malong (even though I'm wearing sweat pants) which is the 2nd time I experience visiting any place (first in Cambodia temple) The divine mercy statue and thorn-like roof of the chapel were a sight to behold. Also tasted the natural spring water and it tasted... More

The Statue of The Divine Mercy is an awe inspiring sight, the gardens that surround it are very beautiful and must be equally good for the soul. Be prepared to stand in line for quite a while before climbing the many steps to the top of the Statue.
