Before you all pack your bags and leave town for the Holy Week, check out the Celestial Gardens in Banawa. Just to let you guys know what to expect – in case you plan to do your Stations of the Cross there.
The Celestial Gardens is owned and operated by the Tanchan Foundation, Inc. Although the property is mainly a private cemetery, it is better known for its very grand ‘Stations of the Cross’. Each year, thousands of people visit the Celestial Gardens during the Holy Week.
