At Bohol Dauis Church

Our first stop for our Bohol Day Tour was the Dauis Church, one of the old stone churches in Bohol (Bohol is famous for big old churches).

Bohol Dauis Church

According to locals, the name “Dauis” was founded by an American who happened to pass by a shore where he saw a fisherman fishing with a hook, line and bobber. The fisherman was chest deep in the water and would cast his line out into the sea and when the fish were caught, the fisherman would pull on the line made a sound like “weese”, at which time the fisherman said “daui” which in the native language was telling the American that he had caught a fish. So the American said this place is “Dauis” because of the “weese” and “daui” from the fisherman.

We got inside the church and found great architectural designs inside. I love the ceilings! They are great works of art! In the altar, I noticed a small walled area and later discovered it’s Mama Mary’s Well. A well in the church altar is just so rare! We took a peek at the well and it’s a deep one. I can even hear the splashing of water inside when a coin was thrown there. We were told by the church staff that the water from the well is being patronized by the sick. We got each a bottle of water taken from the well and we also donated a little amount of money for the church.
