I am trying to add Filter attribute called building type for my book store.

Below is Category Structure with product.

    + Regional Books(4) 
       - English (2) 
            -- book-1
            -- book-2
       - German (3)
            -- book-3
            -- book-4

I have created a custom attribute of type dropdown and have set Filterable with result for Use In Layered Navigation.

enter image description here

Then configured the custom attribute value in product creation page.

Book-1 enter image description here

Book-2 enter image description here

But Still custom attribute is not appearing in layered navigation. Parent page only show sub category and tags and products and not my custom filter. Sub category page shows only tags and products list.

enter image description here

enter image description here

Parent Category - Display setting enter image description here

Any idea why Filter attribute is not appearing in the layered navigation. Please advice I am using Magento 1.9.1 CE with default rwd theme.
