We climbed up a row of stone steps with wooden handrails on both sides to see the Crucified Christ and the Map of Leyte Pilgrim Monument.
When we reached to the top, we saw the sculpted image of a crucified Christ seen through the map of Leyte. There is a fountain with wishing pond adorned with floating candles and lamp posts.
On the tablet inscribed is ...
