Mount Samat Shrine in Bataan

This is a resurrected thread. The previous link thru Kodak Image Sharing was dead because they don’t allow posting links on bulletin boards etc anymore. That was a great disappointment and let down. So now these images are being shifted to other accounts.

In 2007 Nov. the 8th I walked up Mt. Samat and took many pictures. I divided them into three albums, this is the biggest one. The other two albums will follow. This album is mostly about plaques, descriptions, marble murals, gun displays and general scenery of the museum level. They are in great detail. The actual museum was closed and it is not allowed to take pictures in there anyway. Here are 126 images:

This is the 2nd album out of three. It is all about how the access road to the shrine looks like and some of the interesting sights along the way. In 2007 Nov. the 8th I walked up Mt. Samat and took many pictures. I divided them into three albums, this is the second  one, has 90 images, and only deals with the walk.

This is the 3rd album and shows the cross, the cross level, views, area around the cross. I took pictures of all the murals around the base of the cross. The elevator was not open but that was not in my plan to go up there anyway. This album has 56 images:

Here are some sample small images
