Very few landscaping work and other finishing touches are now being completed in time for the opening of the "largest theater in the planet" that would be the center of the INC’s Centennial celebrations this July 27, NDB sources in the church revealed..

The Korean firm, Hanwha Engineering and Construction, announced the completion of the Philippine Arena in Bulacan weeks ago.

Construction work was officially finished on May 30, it said.

Korea Bizwire quoted Hanwha as saying that the completion of the construction work on the indoor arena took 30 months to complete, at a cost of $175 million.

The Philippine Arena was built on a total area of 74,000 square meters.

Its roof area is scaled to 35,000 square meters, reported the Korea Bizwire.

The funds spent for the construction of the landmark Philippine Arena, and for the various houses and buildings of worship of the Iglesia Ni Cristo in the Philippines and in other countries, all came from the offerings of church members, NDB was told by insiders.
