Quezon: Kamay ni Hesus Shrine

Located in Barangay Tinamnan, Lucban in the province of Quezon, Kamay ni Hesus Shrine is a famous religious shrine and grotto of the province.

Also known as Via Dolorosa Grotto, Kamay ni Hesus was built under the initiative of Fr. Joseph "Joey" Faller in 2003. He is known as a gifted healing priest. Due to Fr. Faller's healing masses, Kamay ni Hesus became one of the country's most visited healing centers.

Christian statues can be seen in every corner of the place

One of the highlights of Kamay ni Hesus is the 50-foot statue of Christ with his arm wide open found on the top of a hill. This statue is often referred to as the Risen Christ or Ascending Christ. Pilgrims and tourists who want to get close to the statue have to walk up the 300 plus man-made concrete steps in order to do so. Along the way to the peak, one would see the life-size sculptures of the 14 Stations of the Cross. Once on the peak, one would also get a nice view of the hill's surrounding areas.

Don't worry this huge gathering only happens during the Holy Week
If I'm not mistaken that's Mt. Banahaw
Kamay ni Hesus is the last place that we visited during our Visita Iglesia in the province of Laguna and Quezon. During our visit, there were hundreds of pilgrims lined up trying to reach the peak of the hill so we decided not to go up the hill but just offer our prayers in the chapel at the foot of the hill. In that way, we would still accomplish our purpose of visiting churches.
I think this place is added to make Kamay ni Hesus an Instagram ready place

Overall, I would still want to revisit Kamay ni Hesus someday and see the towering statue of Christ up close.

Getting there:

From Manila, Cubao, and Alabang ride a bus going to Lucena City. Tell the conductor to drop you off at the diversion road where you could ride a jeep to Lucban (the conductor knows where this is), ride a bus or jeepney going to Lucban town proper. Tell the driver to drop you off at Kamay ni Hesus.

Overall rating


  1. That is such a holy place. Jesus is a favourite hero for me. He suffered so much for all of us.

    1. Yes this place is a holy place perfect for pilgrimages.

  2. Paano PO pumunta Jan if galing PO akong cavite?

    1. Punta ka muna sa Alabang. Mula doon sakay ka ng bus papuntang Lucena. Sabihin mo sa konduktor na ibaba ka sa diversion road papuntang Lucban. Maraming jeep dun na babaybay ng rutang iyon sabihan mo nalang sila na ibaba ka sa Kamay ni Hesus.
