150th Birthday of Dr. Jose Rizal

Memorial to Martyr Dr. Jose Rizal, Rizal Park, Luneta, Manila, Philippines Premium Photographic Poster Print by Kober Christian, 40x30Today is 150th birthday of the Philippines national hero Dr. Jose Rizal (JOSÉ PROTACIO RIZAL MERCADO Y ALONSO REALONDA), as my tribute in his birthday celebration. I'm re-posting pictures taken by my self  during my visit at Rizal Park ,Manila last year. 

Pepe as he was fondly called by his mother has been an inspiration to all  Filipinos. His legacy of "bayan muna bago sarili"has been fading. But as we celebrate his birthday, We should not forget his quest for freedom that caused his life. We would have never be like this today if not of Dr. Jose Rizal. 

His sacrifice and patriotic act has gained world recognition and as proof of this, monument has been erected in his honor in some parts of the world. 

These photos depicts his life, works and writings.
