The Divine Mercy Shrine in Cagayan De Oro is located in a nine-hectare property in Divine Mercy Hills, El Salvador. It is also known as Christ of the Divine Mercy, and a 50-foot (15.24 m) statue of Jesus as the Divine Mercy stands on top of the hill overlooking Macajalar Bay in Mindanao. It is the 12th highest statue in the Philippines.
The statue of Jesus as Divine Mercy has two concrete rays that have 200-step stairs leading to the head of the statue, where He holds in his chest a “Chamber of Adoration.” The beautiful shrine was completed on 2008 with donations from the private sector. It is similar to the Divine Mercy Statue in Bulacan, which is the largest in the world.
The base of the statue features a healing chapel surrounded by a peaceful garden with different varieties of local flowers. There is also a souvenir shop and a small canteen that serves excellent local food. There are no entrance fees; please respect the place’s serenity and holiness.
