Here be Quezon Memorial, the monument dedicated to the memory of Manuel L. Quezon, who died 63 years ago today. Quezon, the Philippines’ first internationally-recognized president, died of tuberculosis while in exile in the United States during World War II, and was briefly interred at Arlington National Cemetery before being brought back to Manila and buried at the Manila North Cemetery. His remains were then later transferred to the mausoleum under the Quezon Memorial on August 19, 1979, 101 years after his birth.
Quezon Memorial, which I believe is the largest monument to a single Filipino anywhere, lies within Quezon Memorial Circle, a public park bounded by Elliptical Road in Quezon City. Its likeness can found in the triangular seal of Quezon City and consists of three 66-meter tall vertical towers, representing Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, each topped by an angel painted in gold.
Quezon Memorial (sometimes called Quezon Monument) is quite a picturesque sight and has been the subject of many beautiful photos, some of which you can see in Flickr. (Check out Mount Samat Shrine for another picture-worthy towering monument.) Wikipedia’s article on Quezon Memorial Circle would also prove to be quite informative, if you’re interested to learn more about the monument.
