Post 449

Raja Sulayman, one of the local chieftains who resisted the Spanish conquest of Manila in the 16th century, is commemorated with a monument in a plaza facing the Manila Bay. Sculptor Eduardo Castrillo envisioned an indignant figure wielding a kris and a shield (not in photo). The monument was installed in 1976.
