Dipolog City: Welcome Rotunda Fountain


DIPOLOG CITY, Zamboanga del Norte - The Welcome Rotunda Fountain, also called Pagsalabuk Circle Fountain, features a monument depicting the three groups of settlers of Mindanao: the Christians, the Muslims, and the indigenous tribes or Lumad.

The three figures represent the diverse culture of the people of Dipolog City. The raised bowl symbolizes the unity of the Tri-People despite their differences, and celebrates the common aspirations of the Dipolognons for peace and prosperity.

The fountain is located in the middle of the Welcome Rotunda/Pagsalabuk Circle roundabout where three major roads converge in Dipolog City:

*General Luna Street is one of the main streets in downtown Dipolog City that further connects the city westward to other municipalities of Zamboanga del Norte

*Dipolog-Oroquieta National Road connects Dipolog City eastward to other towns in Zamboanga del Norte and to the province of Misamis Occidental

*Dipolog-Polanco-Piñan-Junction Oroquieta Rd connects Dipolog City southward to the other municipalities of Zamboanga del Norte and to the province of Misamis Occidental
