MEASURING 1645 square feet (152.90 square meter), the giant Ten Commandments tablet unveiled in the Philippines was built at Dominican Hill – Baguio’s prayer mountain for free by the Kingdom of Jerusalem Halleluyah Foundation International.
It sets the new world record for the Largest Ten Commandments, according to World Records Academy.
The World’s Largest Ten Commandments tablet, a copy of the rules supposedly handed down by God to Moses on Mount Sinai, was inaugurated by city officials on a hill overlooking the northern resort city of Baguio overnight.
It cost 5 million pesos to build, said Mayor Mauricio Domogan, who in behalf of the 350,000 Baguio residents, received the certification from a Guinness World Records representative.
Israel Ambassador to the Philippines Menashe Bar-on who also led a “tree planting” of an authentic Jerusalem-grown olive tree in front of the Ten Commandments building and tablet prayed in Hebrew that “the country and Baguio be healed and move forward.”
The religious leader who sponsored the project, Grace Galindez-Gupana, topped her previous world record, attained in 2009 when she built a similar 65-square-metre tablet on a hill outside Manila.
