Free Friday: Edsa Shrine in Ortigas, Philippines

Free places to see in places I visited.

Epifanio de Los Santos Avenue or EDSA is the site of the People Power Revolution in 1986 that ousted a dictator in the Philippines.

The shrine of Mary Queen of Peace towers over EDSA above a chapel built to commemorate the People Power Revolution. It is a reminder to the Filipino people that a peaceful revolution is possible when there is unity.
