As for Teodorico Adarna, owner of Temple of Leah and father of Filipino actress Ellen Adarna, this huge edifice of Roman Architecture design is his way of showing how strong his love and his ceaseless devotion to his wife, Leah. Yes, this is a temple of love from an inspired imagination.

In the Queen City of the South, a palace of Teodoro Adarna’s Queen Leah Villa Albino-Adarna was made and replicated with a big statue in the middle. After a few years of waiting, the Philippine version of Taj Mahal has finally opened to welcome visitors.

The temple has an art gallery, museum, and a library where all of the favorite things her wife owned are placed. At the top, there’s a spectacular view of the city and more exceptional scenery as you walk through the temple. In this Greek methodology-inspired 7-story mansion, there are gigantic lions lying on each side of the stairs that will guide you to the door step of another jaw-dropping view. You can see a grand staircase with angels made up of brass and the Queen of the Temple in a 10-ft statue with crown and flower.

Booking a flight to Rome and visiting Roman temple will surely cost you a lot of money. If you don’t have a budget yet, why not just pay a visit to Temple of Leah?

    i have read from the internet that temple of leah offers shuttle service and I want to ask the shuttle schedule hours

      Hi Irish..
      They have no specific schedule of pick-up from IT Park. The last time I visited Temple of Leah, it says:

      “To minimize your transportation expenses in visiting the Temple of Leah, it has
      a shuttle service from Jollibee, I.T. Park going to the temple and vice versa.”

      I haven’t tried going there through the shuttle as I wasn’t aware of it. I only tried the return trip. It costs P15/person.
