Must-see: Calungsod templete, chapel at SRP

/ 07:54 AM January 16, 2013

Two  of the new sights in  Cebu for Sinulog visitors is the San Pedro Calungsod templete and the new Calungsod chapel at the South Road Properties (SRP).

With the arrival of guests for the Sto. Niño fiesta on Saturday and the Sinulog grand parade on Sunday,  Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama said he expects visitors to  check out the pyramid-style open air templete used  for the Nov. 30 national thanksiviing Mass for the first Visayan saint.


Across the street, in the SM Seaside City is a modern air-conditioned chapel built with 100 walls dedicated to Calungsod.

“An additional feature of the Sinulog is San Pedro Calungsod so we expect many to go see the  templete. Let’s be prepared,” said Rama.


He ordered  more lights installed and the restoration of cement bricks for the walkway which were removed after the Nov. 30  event.

The bamboo-themed templete  is located in a 27-hectare vacant lot owned by the Cebu city government.

He asked businessman Rene Mercado to make sure the area is well lighted at night for picture taking. If there’s enough time, he said, a  scaffold will be put up displaying photos of the October 20 canonization in the Vatican, which he attended./ Edison A. Delos Angeles
