  1. I believe that this is a replica of the Carriedo Fountain. The original made of steel is in driveway of the Diliman, Quezon City Office of the waterworks authority. The Carriedo Fountain has been relocated a number of times. It was at the center of a rotunda where the flyover to Nagtahan Bridge and Lerma Street is now located.

  2. We were the ones who rehabilitated the Carriedo Fountain and the story is that the original was FOUND in Diliman and transferred to its present location in Sta. Cruz some time in 1997. We revived the fountain but the sculpture is original. The fountain located in DIliman is the replica which National Artist Napoleon Abueva was contracted to do.

  3. I hope this beautiful Fountain will be restored to its former glory. I also hope Chinatown should be cleaned up and heritage buildings around it restored. I had visited this place 5 years ago and last year,and it has not changed.We had a Aquino as President, A.Lim and Atienza as Mayor and still,no one bothers.These are Tsinoys and Chinese Tycoons should try to improved their Chinatown as it’s usually one of tourist attraction,It’s a SHAME.

    It takes money to restore these places. And the track record of local Chinese tycoons aren’t exactly stellar in this aspect. Also, the immediate needs of the local poor populace aren’t beautiful buildings but rather food and shelter.

  5. Plaza Binondo was beautified last 2005. The two historical fountains were also restored and is now very beautiful specially at night.

    OF COURSE THE FOUNTAIN IS BEAUTIFUL. HOWEVER, PEOPLE WHO USED TO SIT BESIDE IT THROW GARBAGE TO THE WATER SURROUNDING THE FOUNTAIN. THIS IS A KIND OF DISRESPECT FOR A HISTORICAL FOUNTAIN, AND THUS, DISRESPECT FOR OUR HISTORY.
