History of Indang, Cavite

Before its foundation, Indang, Cavite was a part of Silang for seven decades. The distance between Indang and Silang town properly made transactions difficult. Because of this, Indangeños petitioned to convert Indang into a separate municipality. On December 1, 1655, the local government declared Indang as a separate municipality. 

Originally, Indang was named after “Indan”, a tree abundant in the area. However, the letter “g” was added during the Philippine Revolution. Today, Indang, Cavite has 36 barangays. 

Key places in Indang, Cavite

As a traditional town, the key places in Indang, Cavite are mostly found within the Indang Town Plaza. Here are some of these places. 

Saint Gregory The Great Parish

The Saint Gregory Parish Church is the Indang’s center of the Catholic faith. Established in 1625, the Saint Gregory Parish is the oldest church in Cavite. Father Angelo Armano founded the church as a mission station. Eventually, the stone church was finished in 1710 under the term of Father Luis Morales. 

During the Philippine Revolution, the church was burned. Andres Bonifacio was accused of this crime along with threatening Indang’s residents. Severino de las Alas, Indang’s philanthropist at the time, stood as witness. Today, you can see de las Alas’ gravestone inside the parish. 

This incident led to Bonifacio’s arrest in Limbon, one of Indang’s oldest barangays. It was also rumored that the church has tunnels. Locals believe that Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo used these tunnels as secret passageways.
