Q = Quezon Memorial



Quezon Memorial

A picture I took when I went photo walking with my new friend Halie. The Quezon Memorial Circle was our last stop on the walk, and is where we met up with another new friend H.

The Quezon Memorial is a shrine and park located in the heart of Quezon City. In the base is a mausoleum where the former Philippine president Manuel L. Quezon and his wife Aurora was laid to rest.

To read the full history and details about this structure, you can read it from Wikipedia here.
