Veta meets Quezon

 The Manuel Quezon Memorial Shrine is the tallest structure in Quezon City standing at 66 meters. It was built as a tribute to one of the Philippines' greatest statesmen, Manuel Quezon. The shrine is composed of three artistically conjoined towers which symbolizes birth, life and death. It is topped by three angels that represent Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

 In the middle of the three towers is the memorial chamber of Quezon. It houses two museums – one houses a museum that contains priceless Quezonian items and the other houses memorabilia of Quezon City mayors. Inside is a shrine that contains the bronze casket that holds the remains of Manuel Quezon. 

 It is considered as the city's landmark. It was built in the middle of a 27-hectare rotonda park with various amenities such as a basketball and volleyball courts, playgrounds, skating rinks, bike lanes, built-in chess tables, indoor and outdoor conference halls, gardens and herbariums, stone-foot massage area, and an ampitheater. 

 In 2008, the city government re-assumed control over the Shrine and Quezon City Mayor Feliciano Belmonte Jr. declared the Manuel Quezon Shrine as a sacred ground. He also created a committee to conduct an inventory and study the physical and financial strength of the facility.
