Monastery of The Transfiguration

Monastery of The Transfiguration

After we soak our selves in cold water spring at Nasuli, we're now headed to our next destination - Monastery of The Transfiguration. The place is so serene and peaceful, perfect place to meditate and thinks things out. My visit there is short but sweet and we're ready to head to next spot.

It is located on a hill in Barangay San Jose, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon. The pyramid structure was made by national artist Architect Leandro Locsin and was dubbed as a “Magnum Opus”, a Latin word which means “Great Work”. Architect Leandro Locsin (1928-1994) is a Negrense known as “The Architect of Space” and the Monastery is one of his famous works and one of his lasts.


From Valencia Bus Terminal, ride a multicab going to Malaybalay and tell the driver to drop you off at Barangay San Jose, Monastery of the Transfiguration junction. The fare is around 30php to 40php. After that, ride a habal-habal going up to the monastery for just 30php. And don't forget to ask the driver to pick you up once your done roaming around. Or you may contact Kuya Antonio at 0975-278-1475 for your convenient.
