Barangka Ilaya: A colorful past

Rent a Condo in Barangka Ilaya MandaluyongBarangka Ilaya is one of 27 barangays in the city of Mandaluyong. It has a land area of 47.45 hectares and has a population of 5,000 as of 2010. Barangka Ilaya is surrounded by Barangay Highway Hills, Malamig, Barangka Itaas and Buayang Bato.

Barangka Ilaya used to be part of a single barrio collectively known as “Barangka” before it was divided into 4 (Barangka Ilaya, Barangka Itaas, Barangka Ibaba, Barangka Drive) during the time of Municipal Mayor Bonifacio Javier in the 1940s.

According to city folklore, when the Philippines was under the Spanish regime, there lived an old woman named Barang who had a young daughter. The daughter was in the rice fields when she was attacked by a man. She cried for help, calling her mother repeatedly. “Ka Barang! Ka Barang!” Her cry echoing through the hills and valleys.

The city itself showed significance during the Philippine Revolution in 1896 as the baluarte of the Katipunan “Makabuhay” group. In August 1986, Andres Bonifacio, Emilio Jacinto and other members of the Katipunan met at the house of Romualdo Vicencio at Sitio Balakbak to prepare for the upcoming revolt. It was here where Bonifacio read the last manifestation of the Katipunan before they moved to the house of Felix Sanchez in Hagdan Bato. The historic revolutionary paper, “La Republika”, was also established here.

The city again came to the spotlight in 1986, when thousands of Filipinos marched to the EDSA Shrine to lead the country’s first peaceful revolution which came to be known as People Power.
