The Marian Shrine stands in the hilly area of upper Lindogon in barangay Simala, Sibonga town. It was built by the congregation of Marian Monks in 1998 when the image, brought here from Pampanga, rumoured to show miracles during the height of an epidemic that killed many people in that community. Aside from its striking castle like structure, local folks and the monks of Simala Church claim that several unexplainable miracles have been witnessed around the crying of the statue of Virgin Mary. As fascinating as the legend surrounding it is the architecture of the building that is both imposing and strikingly beautiful.
