Panay Bell - Replica

This is a replica of the famous Panay Bell.
Housed at the Sta. Monica Parish church in the Municipality of Panay, Capiz, Philippines. 
It is the biggest bell in Asia and the third largest bell in the world.

The bell is known to have been made out of 70 sacks of gold coins.

Weighs 10.4 tons, its echoing sound can be heard 8 kilometers away.

This replica is located beside the convent. There is another replica found at the tower of the church which is as big as the original bell. 
Folks says the real bell was stolen and dropped into the sea.
