At the foot of Mount Arayat in the Philippines stands a large, pyramid-shaped structure. It’s called Bale Batu, and it is the creation of a local artist named Jesus Padilla. The man, called Apung Susing by his fellow artists, spent years working on Bale Batu. Literally, for more than half of his life, he worked on building this temple. The result was something you’d never expect.
At the end of it all, after spending four decades building this beautiful temple, it became Apung Susing’s own burial ground. Although that is sad, it’s also beautiful to know that he will forever rest in the temple that he loved so much and built his life around (literally).
