About Imus

Imus

 

Imus, officially the City of Imus (FilipinoLungsod ng Imus), is the officially designated capital city of the province of Cavite in thePhilippines. The former municipality was officially converted into a city following a referendum on June 30, 2012. Based on the 2010 local government unit (LGU) income of Imus, the former town is classified as a first-class component city of Cavite with a population of 301,624 people according to the 2010 census.[5][6]

Located about 19 km (12 mi) from Metro Manila, Imus was the site of two major Katipunero victories during the Philippine Revolution againstSpain. The Battle of Imus was fought on September 3, 1896 and the Battle of Alapan, on May 28, 1898, the day when the first Philippine flag was flown making Imus the "Flag Capital of the Philippines". Both events are celebrated annually in the city. The Imus Historical Museum honors the city's history with historical reenactment of scenes from the revolution.

Imus is the center of religion in Cavite being the seat of the Diocese of Imus, the diocese that has jurisdiction over all the Catholic parishes in Cavite. The home of the diocese is the Imus Cathedral, under thepatronage of the Canonically Crowned Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Imus (Our Lady of the Pillar). The city served as the host diocese during the 5th Asian Youth Day on November 20–27, 2009.
