‘Ka Barang!’

Buy an affordable Condo in Barangka Ilaya MandaluyongThe legends surrounding the creation of Mandaluyong usually pertain to the forbidden romance between Manda and Luyong, two star-crossed lovers who were said to have settled in an area that would be called Mandaluyong. Another legend merely refers to the Luyong tree that was said to have been abundant in the area. Yet another legend tells the story of how the place was called Madaluyong by the natives due to the rolling terrain making up most of the area. The legend surrounding Barangka, however, tells the story of Barang and her daughter. Barang was an old woman who lived with her young daughter in the area a long time ago. One day, while her daughter was in the rice fields, presumably working, she was attacked by a man, and as she was trying to fend off the vile fiend, she screamed for her mother, “Ka Barang! Ka Barang!” There are little to no accounts as to what happened to Barang or her daughter, but it is said that her screams for help echoed throughout the area, reaching the ears of Spaniards passing by. These Spaniards then began calling the area Barangka.

It’s a silly story, when one thinks about it, but one thing’s for sure, Barangka is not a place that one would refer to as silly. One of the 27 barangays located in Mandaluyong, the Barangka area is divided into four sub-barangays: Barangka Drive, Barangka Ilaya, Barangka Ibaba, and Baranka Itaas. The current division among the Barangka barangays began when then Mayor Bonifacio Javier of what used to be the Municipality of Mandaluyong, divided the then Barangay into the 4 divisions as seen today.
