Zamboanga City: city hall

The Zamboanga City Hall was built by the Americans from 1905 to 1907.
Did you know that the Japanese forces during the Second World War did not destroy this building for a particular reason?  The answer is the chrysanthemum. Scrutinize the doors and look for this Imperial Seal symbol of Japan. There are several more architectural details that will perk up your interest.
