THE GOLD TEMPLE

 

 

This year on February 13, 2005, the 50th Anniversary of the International Folklore Festival in Agrigento, Sicily Bayanihan bested all Gold Temple Awardees of the past 50 years who competed for the Festivalís Golden Anniversary Gold Temple Award. The award is an 18-karat gold replica of the ancient temple in Sicily, the archeological capital of Italy. Added to this spectacular feat was the Primavera Award won by Bayanihan dancer Anna Kristina Martinez for grace, beauty and intelligence. This is the first time in the festivalís history that both top awards were won by the same country.
