World Of Butterflies

At the foot of one of the hills of Marikina Heights is the World Of Butterflies.   This elongated structure houses a botanical garden and breeding area for butterflies.   When you enter, you'll be greeted by butterflies freely roaming around the area.    A trail leads you to a landscaped garden where you can get a glimpse of butterflies flying from branch to branch and bush to bush.   If you're lucky, a butterfly may even land on your head or hand if you hold it out like a branch.   There are butterflies of different shapes, sizes and colors.

Aside from the full-grown butterflies, there are also several cages with catterpillars who are in different stages of their metaporphoses in eventually becoming a butterfly.  Here you'll see the catterpillars slowly crawling on leaves eating them as source of nutrition.

If you wish to learn more about the entire life cycle of a butterfly, there is a viewing room on the 2nd floor where you can watch an educational audio-video documentary of the butterfly.  

The place is also decorated with huge artificial butterflies placed on the walls and 2 lifesize butterfly mascots at the entrance.

The World of Butterflies is located at the corner of Champagnat and Gen. Ordonez Streets, Barangay Marikina Heights and right beside Marikina Heights National High School.  They're open every day from 8am-5pm (excluding holidays).  Entrance fee is P20. for Marikina residents and senior citizens and P40. for non-residents. For more info, call 941-3747.
