I lost count how many times I’ve been here. The first time I was here was during Holy Week few years back and a lot have changed from then on. Back then the only highlight of the place was just the 50-foot statue of resurrected Christ on top of the hill and to reach it you have to climb 301-steps (or more). You may either climb it direct to top or follow the Way of The Cross.
This trip happened last year, October 6, 2012 to be exact when my cousin went home from UAE. A treat to her family and relatives. Yes, I know another late post. Haha. We visited the shrine then side trip to Isdaan in Calauan. I’ll be making another post on that to update my earlier blog on Isdaan.
Pledges and donations that helped in building the shrine.
Entrance to grotto:
Noah’s Ark will welcome you. Kids, kid’s at heart and fellow shutterbugs will be delighted to see this.
Let’s start the climb!
View from the top…
And going down…
Another place of prayer. I prayed with my cousin here and her prayers are answered! Praise God!
Old photos of my first visit to Kamay Ni Hesus I was able to download from my FB account.

This was during holy week so the place was jam-packed!
The Chapel during Holy Week
Kamay Ni Hesus for sure will be busy again this coming Holy Week or should I say busier because even if it isn’t Holy Week the place is a popular destination especially for Catholic devotees.
