History[edit]

Etymology and origin[edit]

Its name was derived from the Maranao word tamparan which literally means "frontge."[citation needed]

During the American colonial presence in the country Sultan Mangking Sugador was appointed by the American government as Municipal District President, a position equal to the rank of Municipal Mayor, although lesser in power than the latter. When asked by the American Officials about his name, the Sultan said “I am the Sultan of Tamparan,” referring to the dowa ka lokus-tribal leaders of Tamparan.[citation needed] Sultan Mangking Sugador became popular by his royal title that American officials started calling the town Tamparan.

Declaration[edit]

The creation of the Municipality of Tamparan could be traced way back the Commonwealth Government of the Philippines under then President Manuel L. Quezon. It was in the year 1940 President Quezon issued an Executive Order known as Commonwealth Act No. 592 creating Dansalan (now Marawi City) as regular municipality and Tamparan as its municipal district covering the areas (now municipalities) of Masiu, Taraka, Poona-Bayabao, Lumba Bayabao, Maguing, Mulondo, Bumbaran and Wao.

Tamparan District became a regular municipality on September 28, 1960 by virtue of Executive Order No. 405 and consequently declared Islamic Municipality pursuant to Batas Pambansa (PB) Number 33 on June 4, 1984.[citation needed]
