Panooran

Panooran

The nipa hut-inspired PANOORAN or observation deck, with the “Malakas at Maganda” sculpture ensemble in the background across the lagoon.

 

The nipa hut also known as bahay kubo, is a native house traditionally  constructed with bamboo tied together and covered with a thatched roof using nipa/anahaw leaves.  It is an icon of Philippine culture as it represents the Filipino value of bayanihan, which refers to a spirit of communal unity or effort to achieve a particular objective.
