Rizal Park

This is part of my 9 Old Churches in Metro Manila

After San Agustin Church, together with Ate Sha, we entered on the other side of Intramuros where we saw different acts. There were a lot of students who were doing their rehearsals; drama and dance. After Intramuros we crossed on a high way going to Rizal Park or previously named as Luneta Park.

It was already dark when we reached Luneta Park and the first thing we did was to visit the 8 million peso worth of flag pole in front of Rizal Monument, which is also the most famous sculptural monument in the country.

While we were here, I was the one who served as the tour guide for Ate Sha. I was the one who did tsimis the price of the flag pole and the history of the Rizal Monument. By the way, Rizal Monument was named after Jose Rizal, Philippine National Hero, and is made of bronze and granite design by Richard Kissling, titled: "Motto Stella" or Guiding star. The contract was given to him, even though he was only the second placer among 40 other entries. According to some tsimis, this monument houses the remains of Rizal and some of his personal belongings.

Aside from Rizal Monument and the P8M peso worth of flag pole, another center of attraction will be the dancing fountain that looks great and with matching audio presentation. The full moon was like our guardian during our stay here. After an hour and a half, we proceeded to the area where the National Museum can be seen. Then, took our dinner break in one of the fast food nearby. Then LRT and MRT ride going back to where we belong.
