Volume VIIIssue 04KALIBO, Aklan (PIA) -- The local government unit of Kalibo in Aklan province is appealing to the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) to convert the Aklan Freedom Shrine, one of Aklan’s historical landmarks, into a national shrine. This appeal to the NHCP is contained in a resolution of the Kalibo Sangguniang Bayan, recognizing that the commission has the final decision on the appeal based on Republic Act No. 10066 of the National Heritage Act of 2009. The Aklan Freedom Shrine is located in Desposorio Maagma St. in Poblacion Kalibo town. This year, the Aklan Freedom Shrine will turn 23 years old since its inauguration on March 23, 1926 as 19 Martyrs of Aklan Musoleum, later called as Aklan Freedom Shrine on May 3, 1960.The skeletal remains of the 19 Martyrs of Aklan were interred under the statue of Gen. Francisco del Castillo. The Kalibo SB resolution stated that historical shrines have historical sites or structures which are considered sacred due to stories declared by the NHCP. Should the NHCP declare the Aklan Freedom Shrine a national shrine, the Kalibo SB said there will be incentives for private support of conservation and restoration through the Conservation Incentive Program for National Culture Treasurers. An official heritage marker will also be placed by the commission and in times of crisis or conflicts, natural disasters and other emergencies, the government will be prioritizing the shrine’s protection and rehabilitation.
