User Comments:

I'm a Quezonian and I proudly nominating our pride The Kamay ni Hesus Shrine in Lucban Quezon. Kamay Ni Hesus is one of the best popular pilgrimage sites here in our province. It was such a great experience visiting Kamay Ni Hesus, in fact I already experienced climbing the 305 steps grotto to reach 50-foot statue of the Ascending Christ. The statue of Christ at the Via Dolorosa Grotto is 50ft tall and currently the World’s third tallest Risen Christ Statue. Upon reaching the top, a spectacular birds eye view of the town will greet you. It was truly a rewarding experience and I'm so blessed. Within the 5-hectare property, visitors can also visit Luklukan ni Maria, Noah’s Ark, Resurrected Christ, Gallery of Saints, Garden of Eden, The Angels Hill, The Marian Park and the religious Murals. - Bernadette Jumpalad
