Dambanang Kawayan, officially known as Saint John the Baptist Parish, is a Roman Catholic parish-church. It is a century old church with altar, wall sidings, ceiling and benches that are made of pure, native bamboo. This symbol of Filipino design and artistry stood in history as the site where over 500 men were gathered and brutalized during the tragic “sona” as of December 1, 1944 conducted by the Japanese forces. The men were later imprisoned in the dungeons of Fort Santiago in Intramuros, not to be seen again, alive or dead.
