Manila Post Office

I have to admit, this was my first time to step into the Manila Post Office building in Lawton. And it was an amazing trip for me that day to be right inside the national landmark that I have admired only from afar.


... massive walls and pillars.... superb architecture.... high ceilings... intricate interior design.. wide spaces and corridors... it was awesome! A work of art, indeed!


An information booth greets you at the entrance.


Even the view from the inside looking out was just overwhelming for me that I had to shoot my camera away!


I wasn't quite impressed with this new addition to the structure though. But I took shots anyway...




Definitely, the Manila Post Office is one of the structures that the country should be proud of. It is landmarks like this that we should cherish as part of our national heritage. Let us love it and preserve it.
