Religious tourism in Misamis Oriental is on the rise with the ongoing development of the Christ The King Shrine in Barangay Samay, Gingoog City. The religious complex will include a 60-foot statue of Christ The King.
The unveiling of the Christ the King landmark was held last week attended by Governor Yevgeny Emano, guests, city and local officials. You can see the under construction statue in the background.

Below are some perspectives of the project.
Accordingly, the design will be similar to this Christ the King statue in Poland.
With Divine Mercy Shrine Complex located on Western Misamis Oriental (El Salvador City), this project will further enhance religious tourism particularly in Eastern Misamis Oriental.
