The town of Manaoag is the pilgrimage center of Pangasinan and Northern Luzon. What is so striking about Manaoag as a religious center is that the temple sets on top of a hill. It hues to the Biblical teaching that a light should be on top of a hill so that it could be seen by all. "You Are The Light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it inside a basket, but on a lampstand and it gives light to all who are in the house. "Let Your Light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5:14-16).
