The Chapel of the Holy Shroud is that small new place of worship located at the basement of the Divine Mercy Church at Divine Mercy Shrine Hills in El Salvador City, Misamis Oriental.

Opened in September 2015, the chapel is named after the famed Holy Shroud or the Shroud of Turin which is a length of linen cloth bearing the image of a man that is believed to be the burial shroud of Jesus of Nazareth. The shroud is now being kept at the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, Italy (from Wiki).

This is the entrance to the basement chapel.

The chaplet has three columns of pews which is suitable for small special services.

The basement chapel was built and funded by devotees notably from Thailand – Mrs. Panadda Nilkumhaeng and Mr. Nithat Awachartkosit. An acknowledgement is posted inside the chapel.
