It is the first in the country (Philippines). Built in the campus of the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, the Carillon is a 130-foot structure that originally housed 46 bronze bells cast by Van Bergen Bell, Chimes and Carillon Foundry of Holland.
Architect Juan Felipe de Jesus Nakpil, the first National Artist for Architecture, designed and supervised its construction.
Today, the Carillon bells peal the time of day every hour and plays well-known Filipino and UP songs at 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily.
The carillon will communicate to the whole the campus that work can start and end for the day.
