The Divine Mercy Shrine is a Catholic monument in El Salvador, Misamis Oriental, Philippines. It features a 15.24 meter statue of Jesus as the Divine Mercy as the focal point of Divine Mercy Hills, a tract of land overlooking Macajalar Bay on the southern island of Mindanao.[1][2]

The nine-hectare land for the Shrine was purchased for a nominal amount and the complex was paid for by donations.[3] The shrine was completed in 2008 and serves as a pilgrimage site for Divine Mercy devotees.[1]
