Tuesday Travels#18 Agong House, Kapatagan

Photobucket


It is an hour away from Digos City proper and considered a part of Sitio Kapatagan. Standing on the slopes of Mt. Apo, Agong house showcases well-known Davao artist, Kublai Millan's designs and sculptures. Agong house  has become a popular tourist destination among locals especially when it was known that the owner allows visitors to see his vacation house.

Shaped like an agong which is a musical instrument used by the Muslims and the indigenous people from the southern part of the Philippines, the house is a masterpiece in itself.  The garden is also quite an art piece too with a breathtaking view of the Mt. Apo and surrounding mountain range.

Is Digos still part of Davao?

Interesting place! I should go and see this. I've been to Digos at few times many years ago but haven't seen or heard of this place.

Thanks for the visit.

Wow! That's a very interesting place! Totoo pala talaga ito ha. This was mentioned to me by a friend but today is my first time to see the structure standing. Ang ganda! :)
