Dambana, The Filipino Shrine (Below)
Dambana is Filipino word for "altar." This shrine is a sanctuary that brings together the faith and culture of the Filipino people.
Its roof is shaped like a salakot, a traditional Filipino wide-brimmed hat. Its walls are made of capiz, a flat seashell commonly used on windows in Filipino homes.
In the center of the shrine are three stands covered with natural bamboo. Three sculptures are enshrined on these stands.
Our Lady of Dambana , surrounded by three angels representing the three major islands of the Philippines - Luzon, Visayas Mindanao.
Santo Niño de Cebú , the oldest relic in the Philippines. Written on the bamboo stand is the Cebuano "Hail Mary" in Baybayin, the ancient Filipino alphabet.
San Lorenzo Ruiz , the first Filipino saint.
This Shrine was dedicated in 2008.
