On July 27, 1946 at 9 0’ clock in the morning, the remains of President Manuel Quezon arrived in Manila by the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Princeton. The same year independence was recognized by the United States.

And after 33 years, his remains were once again exhumed from his tomb at the Manila North Cemetery. On August 1, 1979, in time for his 35th Death Anniversary, his immortal remains were transferred in his national pantheon- Quezon Memorial Shrine.

Standing at the heart of his dream city and beloved homeland, the monument is a fitting gesture of Filipino people’s gratitude to President Quezon’s legacy and achievement to the country.
