The Rosary Garden is found at the back of the new Christ the King Cathedral. It is simply amazing, each bead weighs so heavy. It reminds us of our devotion to Mama Mary. it is not just a tourist attraction but a reminder of our catholic faith.

It is located in the heart of Tagum City. A very solemn place, nice and clean surrounding. Don't leave Tagum City without visiting this place.

The location is perfect as it is located just at the back of the New Christ the King Cathedral. Ideal time of visit would be early in the morning or at late afternoon when the full heat of the sun is absent.

This is a wonderful church and shrine in the Northwest of Tagum City. It's behind the City Hardware area. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The church is quite large and very nice for quiet time solo or as a couple. We enjoyed our quiet time here as well as the Bisaya services on Sundays. Go, you will be... More

Within the vicinity of the Cathedral, the place draws you back to your faith and reminds you of how many times you fall off and the many times you try to keep your faith back on. The rosary is a work of art, as well as the landscape and the garden, the design is appropriate, the flowers and the green... More

The world's largest rosary can be seen just outside the cathedral. When you're actually there you'll be awed of just the mere size of this rosary-it's is gigantic. But the most memorable thing there is that you can contemplate there, pray and feel God's love

This is a good addition to one's selfie collection - big rosary. I wonder if this has entered into the Guiness Book of world records, which it should.

Except for its size, it is not as memorable as the Christ the King Cathedral which also sits on the same compound.

They said it's the largest rosary in the world. Well indeed it's so huge. The beads of the rosary are made of cement. I suggest to better go here during early morning or late afternoon so it will not be so hot and the weather will be conduceive for praying and reflection.

Quiet place to do some praying and reflection. I didn't recognize that it was a rosary at first because the beads were as big as barrels! The cathedral also houses seven stations of the cross. The cathedral was sort of closed during my visit (lights were turned off but the gates/doors were slightly open). We were able to go inside... More
