Our first travels as family is in the Queen of the South were we visited the new tourist attraction of Cebu, the Temple of Leah the majestic Roman inspired architectural design. In the past few months this temple made a noise after model/actress Ellen Adarna post a picture on her Instagram about Temple of Leah. From that picture people became curious and even me. So I put this tourist attraction in our list. So time has come, we final visit Cebu and Temple of Leah is the priority place to go.

Temple of Leah was constructed last 2012 of Teodorico Adarna as a symbol of his undying love for her wife and his ceaseless devotion to Leah Villa Albino-Adarna and he is the grandfather of actress Ellen Adarna. Just like the famous Taj Mahal of India, is a work of art built as a symbol of a man’s undying love to his wife.

According to Ellen Adarna

People have been visiting my grandmother’s museum. My grandfather, father and brother built and designed this for her. (She loves Greek mythology) stuff. She told us we can’t sell her collections or else she’ll come back and haunt us. So instead we placed it all there. Miss you, wa. Always and forever
