A few years after its completion in 1939, World War II broke out and Pagoda was transformed into an air raid shelter. By the end of the war, while the rest of the city was razed and flattened to the ground, the Pagoda survived the bombings. Although it retains much of its character the Pagoda is now in a dilapidated condition. Read more about this enchanting structure HERE
The Pagoda is now a boarding house and outsiders are not allowed to visit the inside of the Pagoda. Too bad if we will let just this structure deteriorate. I'm sorry if i dont give justice to this magnificent structure, for better photos do visit Sidney Snoeck's My Sari Sari Store.
