History and Government

 

 

The original settlement was named Cagaluna. At that time, the tribes were engaged almost constantly in numerous petty tribal wars. Northward was a village named Tinglayan, with whom Cagaluan was engaged in a bitter strife. After a long and fierce struggle, Cagaluan won. Aside from indemnities of various kinds, one of the conditions imposed to maintain peace was the exchange of names. That was how Cagaluan came to be named Tinglayan and vice versa.

 

 

Tinglayan was organized as a municipal district during the American regime. On June 25, 1963 during the Philippine Republic, Executive Order No. 42 was passed making Tinglayan a regular municipality. The municipality was led by Roberto Chulsi from 1992 to 1998. He was succeeded by Fernando Abay in 1998.
