Construction of the so-called “TULAY-KALINAW” or Peace Bridge at Christ the King Shrine along Route 955 in Samay, Gingoog City is now underway. The structure acts as an elevated pathway or bridge leading to the 75-foot statue. Meanwhile, the CTK Leisure Park Entrance Arch is already up.
This is the Tulay-Kalinaw when completed.

The 75-foot statue of Christ the King has been drawing visitors before the pandemic.

Balatukan as backdrop, Gallery of Famous Saints (4-meter high statues), Souvenir Shops, Stress Wall, Prayer Tablets, Grotto of the Virgin Mary and Sto. Nino, Bonfire Area, a Children’s Playground, Senior Citizens Recreational Hall, Mini Zoo, Monkey Trail, Camping Ground, River Trail, Lover’s Trail, TikTok Area, Bamboo Swing, and a Retirement Haven for the Diocesan SSJV Clergy of Cagayan de Oro.
Construction of the religious complex is mainly through donations of the faithful.
