THE RUINS: TAJ MAHAL OF NEGROS ISLAND

Have you visited the Ruins in Negros Occidental? 

Known as the Taj Mahal of Negros, The Ruins is located at the borders of Talisay and Bacolod City. The mansion was owned by Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson for his first wife, Maria Braga, a Portuguese from Macau whom he met in his vacations in Hongkong.

As the name of the place implied, this attraction is the remains of the mansion during World War II wherein the family intentionally burned so that the Japanese people won’t use it as their headquarters. It took them weeks to fully consume the house because it was made of hardwood. For many years, the remains of the mansion were just left abandoned in the midst of a sugarcane plantation until the owners decided to fix it and put a landscape around the ruins.
