Contest #488: Divine Mercy Shrine, El Salvador, Misamis Oriental, Philippines

Built in 2008, this Catholic monument consists of a 50 foot statue of Jesus. At his feet is a “healing chapel”. Radiating from his chest is a staircase, where the faithful can ascend and enter a “Chamber of Adoration” and another structure leading to the visitor’s center. The overall image is designed to mimic the iconic image of the “Divine Mercy” Christ.
