Kamay ni Hesus: A Potential Religious Attraction in Lucban, Quezon Philippines

Hey, hey everyone! Is the title a bit new for my blog? haha~ Yes! this post is about traveling different places. I really love to travel. Hmm. btw, I'm a tourism student that's why I've been to different tourist destinations. I wish I could share with you all the cool places I've been but I just started to share my Travel post today. 

The title is very formal because it's our thesis title. Haha. I'm kinda busy these few weeks because were working on chapter one.  And this post is the Theoretical Framework I made.. btw, here's our group pic from left Sonam, Trizia, Me, Karla, Alynette and Dyane.

Kamay ni Hesus is a Religious tourist destination for local and foreign visitors specially for Catholics and religious ones that believes in our Christ, Jesus. Quezon Provice is a popular pilgrimage site for different religious sects, it is home to Mt. Banahaw, considered by locals as a holy ground, where Kamay ni Hesus Healing Church is also situated.
The shrine is located on the slopes of Mt. Banahaw, Barangay Tinamnan, Lucban, Quezon. It features a church where healing masses are celebrated by the known healing priest Fr. Joey Faller. Also on the site is a 292-steps hill with life size figures depicting the 14 Stations of the Cross. On the top is a large statue of Jesus Christ, a 50-foot statue that is said to be the third biggest in the world. Devoted pilgrims touch the foot of the statue and offer their prayers.

So for those who are religious and believer with Christ this is a must visit religious attraction especially for a holy week trip or even a summer getaway, Kamay ni Hesus Shrine is a perfect place to commemorate the life and passions of Christ.

There is also a new feature for the shrine and it’s The Noah’s Ark Park.The Noah’s Ark serves as a place of prayer and meditation for anyone who are in need of a quiet place.

Another thing about Noah’s Ark is they serves healthy menu, and the popular and 
well-loved Lucban foods and delicacies.

Us, trying out Quezon's Pancit HabHab! Haha!~

Have you guys heard about it? 

Pancit Habhab is a sautéed noodles mixed with chopped pork, shrimps and vegetables. Mixed with just the right amount of onion and garlic, and you already have a complete and filling meal. What adds excitement to eating Pancit Habhab is the fact that it is eaten without using any utensils of any kind. To truly enjoy the noodles, it is placed on a rectangular banana leaf and you must eat using only your mouth. Hence you must be careful as not to spill some on your clothes. It is recommended that Pancit Habhab should be sprinkled with some vinegar to enhance its taste. 

I so love the Pancit with Onions it's so tasty but I don't add vinegar haha don't like sour food that much.


After visiting Kamay ni Hesus, we got back to Laguna. We stayed at Alynette's house her Family owned a house in Laguna and it's near Quezon that's why we don't need to stay in a Hotel.

taken in Laguna somewhere back of Alynette's house~

I hope you like it~
