Bell Church of Baguio

Located at the boundary of Baguio City and heading to La Trinidad is the Bell Church. This Chinese compound features intricately designed arches and buildings adorned with flags, bells and dragons. It has a pagoda, and beautifully landscapped gardens.

Here are some photos I have taken at the Bell Church:




Recently, Bell Church has received lots of tourists because of the celebration of the Chinese New Year. And last Saturday (Feb 9), the Chinese Community in Baguio came-up with an activity which included a parade in the City Street of Baguio to welcome the Year of the Rat.

So to everyone, Chinese and Non-Chinese alike, KUNG HEI FAT CHOI!!!
