Geography
Image Indang, envisioned to be the vegetable basket of the Cavite Province, is an inland municipality located in the south central portion of Cavite. East of Indang is Amadeo while the north is occupied by Trece Martires City and Naic. The towns of Maragondon and Alfonso occupy the western portion while Mendez and Tagaytay City are at the southern boundary of Indang. The town is 55 kilometers southwest of Metro Manila and is accessible by land via Tagaytay City.
Brief History
The name Indang originated from the word indang or inrang, a tree, which used to be plentiful in the area. It was a barrio of Silang for a span of seventy years. The distance between Indang and the poblacion of Silang made the residents restless. The people of Indang, therefore, petitioned higher authorities for the separation of Indang and its conversion into an independent municipality. The petition was approved and it officially became autonomous from Silang. The municipality of Indang was organized in 1655 with Juan Dimabiling as the first gobernadorcillo. The town of Indang played a crucial role in the Philippine Revolution. It was a barrio Limbon where Andres Bonifacio, defeated in the Tejeros Convention, was arrested and prevented from pursuing his counter-revolutionary plan to set up a separate government and army. Severino de las Alas, member of Aguinaldo’s revolutionary cabinet; Raymundo Jeciel, one of the escorts of Aguinaldo during his retreat to Northern Luzon; General Ambrosio Mojica, politico-military governor of the First Philippine Republic in Samar and Leyte; Hugo Ilagan and Jose Coronel, delegates of Cavite to the Revolutionary Congress in Tarlac are the outstanding revolutionary figures among the distinguished sons of the municipality of Indang. Indang’s revolutionary name was Walang Tinag (Immovable).
