Despite being a property of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, the Tamayong Prayer Mountain  also welcomes visitors of any faith who wish to visit this place, especially for prayer and meditation. All that is needed to be done is to secure an appointment beforehand at Jose Maria College, an institution run by group located just beside the Davao International Airport, and to pay P100 for the maintenance of the Prayer Mountain.

Getting to this place will involve about an hour and a half drive if you are coming from the Davao City proper. If you are commuting, this entails an hour’s ride to Calinan proper plus 30 minutes on motorcycle, AKA the habal-habal.

The Prayer Mountain in Tamayong is also known as the Garden of Eden Restored, and you will get to know why the moment you enter the property as you will be greeted by a view of lush greenery and flora, as well as clear water flowing in the fountain, the waterfalls, and in the stream.
