There are two entrance to this shrine, a walk up the hills or drive to the rear entrance and for a short walk. There is a fee for parking, you get a good view of the city and the surrounding from here. The most important thing here is the relics and a must visit place for Catholics

You have to climb a small hill through steps to reach the shrine, but at the end you will be rewarded with a beautiful view of the city. Ideal for an early morning trek. The shrine is also very nice, good ambiance. To get a good view of the city visit the place when pollution level is low.
