santo cristo shrine

Santo Cristo Shrine at San Nicolas Street in Binondo. If you would notice it's like a mixture of Catholic and Chinese belief with sampaguitas and garland at the crucifix and also chinese incense stick and fruits are being offered here.

It is said the an image of the crucified Christ said to be found by a deaf-mute Chinese at the site of an old well in the barrio of Longos in Binondo. That crucifix whihc is better known as Santo Cristo de Longos is enclosed in a glass cover and can be found at the side entrance (Ongpin Street) of the Binondo Church.
