Ellen Adarna’s Grandpa Builds “Taj Mahal” Equivalent in the Philippines

A 500,000-square meter property in Barangay Busay, Cebu stands as a symbol of undying love between a husband and a wife, much like the story behind the Taj Mahal in Agra, India.

And this is being built by Ellen Adarna’s grandfather, Teodorico Adarna, in honor of his late wife, Leah Villa Albino-Adarna, who passed away in 2012 at the age of 69 years old because of cancer.

The Temple of Leah, as the edifice is called, was inspired by the Greek’s Parthenon. A trained engineer, Adarna began the construction of the building in 2013 and is targeted to be completed by 2020.

He said that the statue of his wife costs around Php4M, but he had already lost count of how much he had spent on the construction of the entire infrastructure.
