Pinaglabanan Shrine is a Filipino national shrine and park located on N. Domingo corner Pinaglabanan Street in the city of San Juan
, Metro Manila
. The shrine has a statue of a woman supported by two children, holding up a bolo, or a machete. This was built to commemorate the opening salvo of the 1896 Philippine Revolution, when the local freedom fighters known as Katipuneros lay siege to an arms storage facility, called the almacen, belonging to the Spanish Colonial Government. It is this statue that is depicted on the city's seal.
On 27 August 2012, at 10:00 a.m., the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) inaugurated its Museo ng Katipunan in Pinaglabanan Shrine, San Juan City, celebrating the 150th birth anniversary of the Filipino nationalist, Andres Bonifacio. This is a new museum entirely devoted to Bonifacio and the Katipunan, with interactive displays and original Katipunan artifacts.
The museum also has an e-learning room where students from grades 5-7 will take online interactive lessons about Bonifacio and the Katipunan—the first in the country—produced by the NHCP. The activity is undertaken in partnership with the Department of Education.
