The Exploration of Cebu's Taj Mahal: Temple of Leah

Exploration is really the essence of the human spirit.

Hey Guys, 

Want to share some photos during our exploration and travel last year at Temple of Leah. This temple was made from a man's undying love to his late wife. It was Teodorico Adarna who thought of building a monument of his love for his late wife, Leah. People said this Temple of Leah is the Taj Mahal version of Cebu, Philippines from that Taj Mahal of India. Entrepreneur Teodorico Adarna, grandfather of a TV actress Ellen Adarna, dedicated the temple to his wife of 54 years. Leah died of lung cancer in 2012 at 69. The edifice is meant to be a repository of her items gathered from her travels.

Here are the photos we took during our trip:

Sad Songs

Once there was a boy who couldn't speak but owned a music box that held every song in all the world. One day he met a girl who had never heard a single melody in her entire life and so he played her his favorite song. He watched while her face lit up with wonder as the music filled the sky and the poetry of lyrics moved her in a way she had never felt before.

He would play his songs for her day after day and she would sit by him quietly—never seeming to mind that he could only speak to her through song. She loved everything he played for her, but of them all—she loved the sad songs best. So he began to play them more and more until eventually, sad songs were all she would hear.

One day, he noticed it had been a very long time since her last smile. When he asked her why, she took both his hands in hers and kissed them warmly. She thanked him for his gift of music and poetry but above all else—for showing her sadness because she had known neither of these things before him. But it was now time for her to go away—to find someone who could show her what happiness was.
