The City of Iligan (Cebuano: Dakbayan sa Iligan; Tagalog: Lungsod ng Iligan) is a highly urbanized city north of the province of Lanao del Nortemarker, Philippinesmarker, and the province's former capital. It is approximately 795 kilometers southeast of Manilamarker. According to the 2007 census, it has a population of 399,061 people.

History

Iligan had its beginnings in the village of Bayug, 2.5 kilometers north of the present Poblacion. It was the earliest pre-Spanish settlement of native sea dwellers, known as the Maragatsmarker. The monotony of indigenous life in the territory was broken when in the later part of the 16th century, the inhabitants of Iligan were subdued by the Visayan migrants from the island kingdom of Panglaomarker.

In the accounts of Jesuit historian Fr. Francisco Combes, the Mollucan King of Ternatemarker invaded Panglao. This caused Panglaons to flee in large numbers to Dapitanmarker, Zamboanga del Nortemarker. In Dapitan, the surviving Prince of Panglao, Pagbuaya, received Legazpi's expedition in 1565. Later, Pagbuaya's son Manook was baptized Pedro Manuel Manook. The Christianized Manook subdued the Higaunon village in Bayug and established it as one of the earliest Christian settlements in the country. The settlement survived other raids from other enemies, and, because of their faith in God and in their patron saint, Saint Michael the Archangel, the early Iliganons moved their settlement from Bayug to Iligan.

The name Iligan is from the Higaonon word "iligan" or "ilijan," meaning "fortress of defense" against frequent attacks by pirates and other hostile Mindanao tribes.

A stone fort called Fort St. Francis Xavier was built in 1642 where Iliganons sought refuge during raids by bandits. But again, the fort sank due to floods. Another fort was built and this was named Fort Victoria or Cota de Iligan.

In 1850, because of floods, Don Remigio Cabili, then Iligan's governadorcillo, built another fort and moved the poblacion of the old Iligan located at the mouth of Tubod River west of the old market to its present site.

Iligan was already a town of the once undivided Misamis Province in 1832. However, it did not have an independent religious administration because it was part of Cagayan de Oro, the provincial capital. It was one of the biggest municipalities of Misamis Province. In 1903, the Moro Province was created. Iligan, because of its Moro residents was taken away from the Misamis Province. Then Iligan became the capital of the Lanao District and seat of the government where the American officials lived and held office. Later in 1907 the capital of the Lanao District was transferred to Dansalan.

The Spaniards abandoned Iligan in 1899, paving the way for the landing of the American forces in 1900. In 1914, under the restructuring of Moroland after the end of the Moro Province (1903-1913), Iligan became a municipality composed of eight barrios together with the municipal district of Mandulog. After enjoying peace and prosperity for about 40 years, Iligan was invaded by Japanese forces in 1942. The liberation in Iligan by the Philippine Commonwealth forces attacked by the Japanese held sway in the city until 1944 to 1945 when the war ended. On November 15, 1944, the city held a Commonwealth Day parade to celebrate the end of Japanese atrocities and occupation.

Using the same territorial definition as a municipality, Iligan became a chartered city of Lanao del Norte on June 16, 1950. It was declared a first class city in 1969 and was reclassified as First Class City "A" on July 1, 1977 by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 465. In 1983, Iligan was again reclassified as a highly urbanized city.

Geography

Iligan City is bounded on the north by the municipality of Lugaitmarker, Misamis Orientalmarker, to the south by the municipalities of Baloimarker, Linamonmarker and Tagoloanmarker, Lanao del Nortemarker, to the east by the territories of Lanao del Surmarker and Bukidnonmarker, and to the west by Iligan Baymarker. This is also the 2nd largest city in Northern Mindanao next to Malaybalay Citymarker.

Known as the City of Majestic Waterfalls, there are around 23 waterfalls in and around Iligan. Among them is the Maria Cristina Fallsmarker, home of Mindanaomarker's primary hydroelectric power station, and Limunsudan Fallsmarker.

Iligan is also the Industrial Center of the South. It produces hydroelectric power for the Mindanao region through the National Power Corporation (NAPOCOR), the site of the Mindanao Regional Center (MRC) housing Agus IV, VI and VII hydroelectric plants. It also houses industries like steel, tinplate, cement and flourmills. The National Steel Corporation, one of the largest steel manufacturers in the Southeast Asian region, now Global Steelworks International Incorporated was re-opened in 2003 after heavy setbacks resulting to its closure in 1999. Iligan along with its neighboring city, Cagayan de Oromarker City, are the two major components for the Cagayan de Oro-Iligan Corridor, the fastest developing area in Northern Mindanaomarker.

To the west, Iligan Baymarker provides ferry and container ship transportation. East of the city, flat cultivated coastal land gives wayto steep volcanic hills and mountains providing the waterfalls and cold springs for which the area is well known.

Climate

Iligan falls within the third type of climate wherein the seasons are not very pronounced. Rain is more or less evenly distributed throughout the year. Because of its tropical location the city does not experience cold weather. Neither does it experience strong weather disturbances due to its geographical location (being outside the typhoon belt) And also because of the mountains that are surrounding the city.

Transportation

Sea

There are five shipping lines serving Manilamarker, Cebu Citymarker, and Ozamiz Citymarker routes namely: Superferry, Cebu Ferries, Carlos A. Gothong Lines, Negros Navigation, Sulpicio Lines, and Cokaliong Shipping Lines.

Land

Rural Transit (RTMI) and Super 5 Transport are the dominant public land transportation in this City. The Integrated Bus and Jeepney Terminal (IBJT) caters trips to and from Cagayan de Oro Citymarker and various parts of Misamis Orientalmarker, while the Southbound Bus and Jeepney Terminal caters trips to and from Dipolog Citymarker, Pagadian Citymarker, Ozamiz Citymarker, various parts of Lanao del Norte and Marawi Citymarker. The public mode of transportation withinin this city is by Jeepneys, Taxis, and Pedicabs. There is also the famous "Tartanillas" (calesas) that is also a public mode of transportation which serves through Barangay Pala-o and Barangay Tambacan. Passenger vans are also available for the various municipalities in Lanao del Norte and Lanao del Sur.

Air

Iligan City was served by Maria Cristina Airportmarker in the late 1980s at Baloimarker. Aerolift, a defunct regional airline, ceased its services when its passenger plane crashed at some structures at the end of the runway of the Manila Domestic Airport in 1990 which resulted to its bankruptcy. Thus, it ended its service to Iligan's airport at Balo-i which also resulted to the closure of the airport. Philippine Airlines served the city for many years before stopping services in 1998 due to the Asian financial crisis. After a decade of not serving the city, PAL subsidiary, PAL Express, revealed in August 2008 of its interest in returning to the city with four weekly flights to Manila and three weekly flights to Cebu. However, this development did not push through with the advent of the recent US and World depression.

The opening of Laguindingan International Airport in 2012 which is located at Laguindingan town in Misamis Oriental, is expected to replace Lumbia Airportmarker in Cagayan de Oro City. It is also expected to augment the city's need for a nearby airport as the new airport is only 65 kilometers away or at most 35 to 40 minutes away from Iligan. The new airport is a flagship project of the Mindanao Super Regions project of the President as a major project of the Cagayan de Oro-Iligan Corridor (CIC).

People and culture

Iligan is predominantly Christian (93.61%). Iliganons compose of the Cebuano speaking locals and the minority that compose of the Maranao, Tagalog and some other cultural minorities and immigrants from other places. It is not only rich in natural resources and industries but it is also the home of a mix of cultures, Maranaos of Lanao del Sur, Higaonons of Bukidnon, and many settlers and migrants from other parts of the country. It is known for its diverse culture.

Cebuano is the major language in the city (about 93%). The rest speak Tagalog, Maranao, Hiligaynon, Ilocano, Chavacano, and Waray-Waray. The majority of the population can speak and understand English.

Government

Iligan City is a highly urbanized city and is independent from the Province of Lanao del Norte. Registered voters of the city no longer vote for provincial candidates such as the Governor and Vice Governor unlike its nearby towns that make up the provinces as a result to its charter as a city in the 1950s.

Iligan City's seat of government, the city hall, is located at Buhanginan Hills in Barangay Pala-o. The government structure compose of one mayor, one vice-mayor and twelve councilors. Each official is elected publicly to a 3-year term and can be re-elected up to 3 terms in succession. The day to day administration of the city is handled by the city administrator.

REPUBLIC ACT No. 9724, an Act separating the City of Iligan from the First Legislative District of the Province of Lanao del Norte was approved by Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo last October 20, 2009.

Economy

The economy of Iligan is largely based on heavy industries. After the construction of Maria Cristina (Agus VI) Hydroelectric Plant by National Power Corporation (NPC, NAPOCOR) in 1950, the city experienced rapid industrialization and continued until the late 1980s. The largest steel plant in the country, National Steel Corporation (NSC), was also established during that period (Specifically in 1962).

During the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, the city experienced severe slowdown in terms of economic growth. A good number of industrial plants are closed, notably the National Steel Corporation. Its closure also created a domino effect on its ancillary industries, causing some companies to close shop while putting others in grave financial distress.

The city made its economic revival with the reopening of the National Steel Corporation, named Global Steelworks Infrastructures, Inc. [GSII] on 2004. Thus, putting the city back on track. On October 2005, GSII officially took a new corporate name: Global Steel Philippines (SPV-AMC), Inc. not only reflects the company's commitment to the Philippines but also presents a clear, strong, and unified brand presence for Global Steel operations in Asia, Africa, and Europe.

Lessons learned from the crisis, the city government makes its move to diversify the economy. Among those are tourism, agriculture, and agribusiness. In One Town, One Product (OTOP) Project of Department of Trade and Industry, the city is producing abaca and its product lines.Other proud product of Iligan are the popularly known Sukang Pinakurat, Sukang Sinarapan, and Honey-man-C.

The Tinago Falls, accessible through a 300-step staircase, is located in the upper part of Barangay Buru-un. It is another place worth visiting as it showcases one of the most beautiful natural landscapes located within the reach of Iligan's urban landscape. It features a curtain-like cascade that falls beautifully into a lagoon. The breath taking setting alone makes it an ideal place for picture taking with its natural landscape as the falls is beautifully mixed with the lush tropical forest that the area is abundant of. Other famous waterfalls in the city are, Mimbalut Falls, Abaga Fallsmarker, and Dodiongan Falls. Some waterfalls are inaccessible to vehicles, which requires trekking for several hours to two days (in case of Limunsudan Fallsmarker) to the destination.

The city is also famous for Timoga Springs.

Aside from the waterfalls that the City of Iligan boasts of, other places of interest are the newly renovated City Public Plaza, The Centennial Park, Maze Parks and Resorts, the Buhanginan Hills (within premise of the City hall), and Saint Michael's Cathedral.

Iligan City is known not only for its rich natural resources but also for the wealth of the culture that abounds in the area. Majority of Iligan’s people come from the Visayas and migrants from the other places of Mindanao.Iligan is literally and geographically located at the crossroads of rich culture – the Maranaos of Lanao Sur, Higa-unons of Bukidnon, the dominantly Christian settlers and migrants. It is proud of the peaceful co-existence of the varied cultural mix on its general community. Evidence of this peaceful co-existence is manifested during the annual celebration of the city fiesta honoring its miraculous patron saint, Saint Michael the Archangel.

The Diyandi (ritual dance) is performed only during the feast of Iligan Patron Saint, Senior San Miguel (Feast Day: September 29). Other curious dance-forms, also performed during the San Miguel Fiesta, include the Eskrima (a dance simulating a fight between San Miguel and his enemies, and the Yawa-yawa, literally, devil-devil), a dance from depicting the celestial battle between the forces of good and evil as impersonated by St. Michael, the Archangel and Lucifer.

Sometime in 1986, it was somehow felt by the local fiesta committee that there was a need to further popularize the folk-dance forms of the Iliganon. Thus was an idea born: the concept of a street dancing festival that will not only preserve certain traditional art forms but promote them as well. In an age when culture and tradition are battered by the incursions of modernity, the significance of such undertaking as a completion of traditional art forms cannot be belittled.

Now called the KASADYA (street dancing and merrymaking), which showcases these rich and varied cultural traditions. Highlighted by the traditional Diyandi, Eskrima and the street drama. KASADYA that was started, as a local form of entertainment has become a major tourist attraction of Iligan drawing crowds to about 50,000 people both local and tourist alike. It is considered as a non-income generating project having the most number of spectators both in the streets and in the showdown venue proper as compared to other tourism related activities.

It is to be noted that the San Miguel Fiesta focused on KASADYA was acclaimed by the BBC Holidays (a monthly consumer magazine published in the United Kingdom and the only publication officially endorsed by the prestigious British Broadcasting Corporation) as a tourist destination. It cited the tribal pageantry mixed with Christian piety famous with brightly costumed participants miming a fight with unseen adversaries to cries of “Viva Senior San Miguel”. Other participants, dressed as warrior angels, march solemnly. It added that it is very unique because of the miracle play called the Yawa-yawa, performed in vernacular dialogue and depicting Lucifer’s unsuccessful revolt against God and the good angels. Other national and local publications also cited KASADYA as a tourist attraction in Iligan.
