chapel of the dead

CHAPEL OF THE DEAD

situated beside the lingayen catholic church in lingayen pangasinan is the our lady of mt. carmel chapel. would you believe that new born babies are being baptized here during sundays after the funeral mass in the morning and at the same time wedding ceremonies are being held at the main church.

later I found out that the chapel is just an extension to the original resting place of the dead located at the main church. I was amazed with what I saw. old graves dating back early 1920’s and the like and during the spanish colonization. the caretaker said that a person close to dr. jose rizal is resting here. I forgot who it was…

disclaimer: I call it “chapel of the dead” for the purpose of this particular post only and to get everybody’d attention as well. I have no bad intention or whatsoever about the place. to me, it’s a beautiful place and a bit historical as well so if you happen to be in pangasinan, don’t forget to visit this place. and beside the chapel you can also see the “kampana museum”!
