Pagsanjan is located in the riparian delta formed by the confluence of the Balanac and Bumbungan rivers.

Bataan is a province situated in the Central Luzon region of the Philippines. Its capital is the City of Balanga. Occupying the entire Bataan Peninsula on Luzon, Bataan is bordered by the provinces of Zambales and Pampanga to the north; the peninsula faces the South China Sea to the west and Subic Bay to the north-west, encloses Manila Bay to the east. The Battle of Bataan is famous in history as one of the last stands of American and Filipino soldiers before they were overwhelmed by the Japanese forces in World War II; the Bataan Death March was named after the province. The first inhabitants of the Bataan peninsula are the Ayta Magbeken people, who are one of the first Negrito ancestors of present-day Filipinos. On, Tagalog communities from southern Luzon migrated to parts of Bataan and the Ayta Magbeken migrated towards the mountain areas of Bataan by the end of the 16th century. In 1647, Dutch naval forces landed in country in an attempt to seize the islands from Spain; the Dutch massacred the people of Abucay in Bataan.
Historian Cornelio Bascara documents that the province of Bataan was established on January 11, 1757 by Governor-General Pedro Manuel Arandia out of territories belonging to Pampanga and the corregimiento of Mariveles which, at the time, included Maragondon, Cavite across the Manila Bay. Bataan featured prominently during World War II. Prior to the 1941 Japanese invasion, the US Army stored nearly 1,000,000 US gallons of gasoline there. Shortly after the Japanese Army invaded the country in December 1941, the combined US and Filipino forces were being overrun and General Douglas MacArthur moved his troops to the Bataan Peninsula in an attempt to hold out until a relief force could be sent from the US. Japanese forces started a siege of the peninsula on January 7, 1942, launched an all-out assault on April 3, a few months after the Battle of the Points; the majority of the American and Filipino forces surrendered on April 9 and were forced to march more than a 100 kilometres from Bataan to Capas, which became known as the Bataan Death March.
The province has an area of 1,372.98 square kilometres, covers the entire Bataan Peninsula, a rocky extension of the Zambales Mountains jutting out into the South China Sea, enclosing the Manila Bay. At the northern portion of the peninsula is Mount Natib and its surrounding mountains, separated from Mount Samat and the Mariveles Mountains in the south by a pass. A narrow coastline plain characterizes the eastern portion of the province, while the western coast features many ridges and headlands. Bataan is politically subdivided into one component city; the population of Bataan in the 2015 census was 760,650 people, with a density of 550 inhabitants per square kilometre or 1,400 inhabitants per square mile. The three most prominent ethnic groups in Bataan are the Tagalogs, the Kapampangans and the Ayta Magbeken, though the third group has a lower population despite being the province's first inhabitants; the second group is present at the northeast of the province, as well as in the provincial capital to a lesser extent.
Various religious groups are subscribed to by the people but Roman Catholicism is the predominant religion, comprising 85% of the Bataan population. Aglipayan, several other Christian faiths, Anitists and atheists are the minority. Nuestra Señora del Pilar Church – Morong Nuestra Señora del Pilar Church – Pilar Nuestra Señora, Virgen Milagrosa del Rosario Church – Orani, declared as a diocesan-shrine by the Diocese of Balanga, it is home to the miraculous image of the Our Lady of Orani, canonically crowned 18 April 1959.

Bulacan is a province in the Philippines, located in the Central Luzon Region in the island of Luzon, 11 kilometres north of Manila, part of the Metro Luzon Urban Beltway Super Region. Bulacan was established on August 15, 1578, it has 569 barangays from three component cities. Bulacan is located north of Metro Manila. Bordering Bulacan are the provinces of Pampanga to the west, Nueva Ecija to the north and Quezon to the east, Metro Manila and Rizal to the south. Bulacan lies on the north-eastern shore of Manila Bay. In the 2015 census, Bulacan had a population of 3,292,071 people, the most populous in Central Luzon and the third most populous in the Philippines, after Cebu and Cavite. Bulacan's most populated city is San Jose del Monte, the most populated municipality is Santa Maria while the least populated is Doña Remedios Trinidad. In 1899, the historic Barasoain Church in Malolos was the birthplace of the First Constitutional Democracy in Asia. On November 7, 2018, the Provincial Government of Bulacan bagged its fourth Seal of Good Local Governance award.
The SGLG award is a progressive assessment system that gives distinction to remarkable governance performance. The Conquest of Bulacan traces to the first years of the Spanish in the Philippines. Upon the defeat of the Macabebe and Hagonoy natives led by Bambalito in the Battle of Bangkusay on June 3, 1571 that caused Martin de Goiti to move up north first to Lubao in September 1571. Two months on November 14, 1571 Martin de Goiti reached Malolos and Calumpit and it was reported to Adelantado Miguel Lopez de Legaspi, the first Governor General of the Philippines. Adelantado established Calumpit and Malolos as an Encomienda entrusted to Sargento Juan Moron and Don Marcos de Herrera; these two conquistador was one of the first group of conquerors accompanied by Legaspi who have arrived in the Islands in 1565. On April 5, 1572, the Encomiendas of Calumpit and Malolos were unified co-administered by Moron and Herrera. On that year Alcaldia de Calumpit was formed which the areas of Macabebe, Apalit in Pampanga and the settlements of Meyto, Panducot and Malolos.
And on December 28, 1575 Governor - General Francisco Sande order to include Hagonoy in Calumpit. In 1575, Bulakan was established as a visita of Tondo and it is not part of Calumpit as the boundary between Tondo and Calumpit were marked in Mambog River and placed the statue of Our Lady of Visitacion was erected, it was gone and recreated in 1997 upon the re-establishment of the Roman Catholic Parish of Our Lady of Presentacion in Malolos. On April 30, 1578 Bulakan town was established by the Augustinians with Fray Diego Vivar as its first prior and the convent was dedicated to San Agustin.. It was reported that the western part of the present-day Bulacan was to be well populated and rich. No exact date and year when Alcaldia de Calumpit was dissolved and the exact foundation year of the Province of Bulacan, it was only documented that Malolos were first to be appeared as part of Alcaldia de Bulacan was in 1582. It may assumed that reorganization of encomiendas has been occurred between 1580-1582 at the time of Governor General Gonzalo Ronquillo de Penalosa.
Same document from the 1582 Relacion de las Islas Filipinas by Miguel de Loarca reports that Alcaldia de Calumpit have the jurisdiction in the areas of Calumpit Capalangan and Hagonoy as its villages. Loarca was mentioned that Alcaldia de Bulacan have Bulakan Malolos, Guguinto and Catanghalan as it Encomiendas which have one alcalde mayor but he said that Alcaldia de Bulacan was formed in 1580 at the time of Penalosa. In the document of Governor-General Luis Perez de Dasmarinas in the Account of the Encomiendas for the King of Spain furnished on June 21, 1591. Dasmarinas mentioned that Alcaldia of Bulacan was part of La Pampanga with the Encomiendas subject to it such as the Encomiendas of Malolos, Guiguinto, Caluya and Bulacan identified as " capital" and residence of "alcalde mayor" with 4,800 persons. In the same 1591 document it was mentioned that Calumpit y Hagonoy belongs to Juan Moron with the 12,800 persons, 2 Augustinian Convents and One Alcalde Mayor of its own. However, the establishment and development of southern part of the present-day Bulacan was not simultaneous and identified with the West.
It was because this part of the Province was established by other group of missionaries, the Franciscan Order who came in the islands only in 1577 at Manila. In 1578 Order of Friars Minor headed by Juan de Plasencia and Diego Oropesa arrived in the area called Toril and their headquarters. In 1578 Plasencia established the Town of Meycauayan, its pueblos was first only settlements of the Old Meycauayan, founded by FranciscanSecondary sources mentioned that Meycauayan exist as a Province in 1578. It was said the Augustinians Christianized Bulacan. Where in fact Bulacan "the town" was a visita of Tondo in 1575 and Calumpit where Malolos and Hagonoy belongs in 1572; the province of Bulacan is on the island of Luzon, is one of the most important Alcadia de Termino and politically it corresponds to the Audiencia y capitanía general de Filipinas, spi

Batangas known as the Province of Batangas is a province in the Philippines located in the Calabarzon region in Luzon. Its capital is the city of Batangas and is bordered by the provinces of Cavite and Laguna to the north and Quezon to the east. Across the Verde Island Passages to the south is the island of Mindoro and to the west lies the South China Sea. Poetically, Batangas is referred to by its ancient name Kumintáng. Batangas is one of the most popular tourist destinations near Metro Manila, it is home to the well-known Taal Volcano, one of the Decade Volcanoes, Taal Heritage town, a small town that has ancestral houses and structures dating back to the 19th century. The province has numerous beaches and diving spots including Anilao in Mabini, Sombrero Island in Tingloy, Ligpo Island and Sampaguita Beach in Bauan, Matabungkay in Lian, Punta Fuego in Nasugbu and Laiya in San Juan. All of the marine waters of the province are part of the Verde Island Passage, the center of the center of world's marine biodiversity.
Batangas City has the second largest international seaport in the Philippines after Metro Manila. The identification of the city as an industrial growth center in the region and being the focal point of the Calabarzon program is seen in the increasing number of business establishments in the city's Central Business District as well as numerous industries operating in the province's industrial parks; the first recorded name of the province was Kumintáng, whose political center was the present-day municipality of Balayan. Balayan was considered the most progressive town of the region. An eruption of Taal Volcano destroyed a significant portion of the town, causing residents to transfer to Bonbon, the name encompassing the bounds of the modern province; the term Batangan means a raft which the people used so that they could fish in the nearby Taal Lake. It meant the numerous logs found in the Calumpang River, the body of water that runs through the northeastern portion of the town and assumes the shape of a tuning fork.
Long before the arrival of the Spaniards in the Philippines, large centers of population thrived in Batangas. Native settlements lined a major waterway; the province had been trading with the Chinese since Yuan Dynasty until the first phase of Ming Dynasty in the 13th and 15th century. Inhabitants of the province were trading with Japan and India; the Philippines ancestors were Buddhists and Hindus, but far from India and intermixed with animistic beliefs. Archaeological findings show that before the settlement of the Spaniards in the country, the Tagalogs the Batangueños, had attained a semblance of high civilization; this was shown by certain jewelry, made from a chambered nautilus' shell, where tiny holes were created by a drill-like tool. The Ancient Batangueños were influenced by India as shown in the origin of most languages from Sanskrit and certain ancient potteries. A Buddhist image was reproduced in mould on a clay medallion in bas-relief from the municipality of Calatagan. According to experts, the image in the pot resembles the iconographic portrayal of Buddha in Siam and Nepal.
The pot shows. Scholars noted that there is a strong Mahayanic orientation in the image, since the Boddhisattva Avalokitesvara was depicted. One of the major archaeological finds was in January 1941, where two crude stone figures were found in Palapat in the municipality of Calatagan, they were donated to the National Museum. One of them was destroyed during World War II. Eighteen years a grave was excavated in nearby Punta Buaya. Pieces of brain coral were carved behind the heads of the 12 remains; the site was named Likha. The remains were accompanied by furniture. Potteries, as well as bracelets and metal objects were found in the area, suggesting that the people who lived there had extensive contact with people from as far as China; the presence of dining utensils such as plates or "chalices" found with the remains suggest that prehistoric Batangueños believed in the idea of life-after-death. Thus, the Batangueños, like their neighbors in other parts of Asia, have similar customs of burying furniture with the dead.
Like the nearby tribes, the Batangan or the early Batangueños were a non-aggressive people. Because most of the tribes in their immediate environment were related to them by blood; some weapons Batangans used included the bakyang, the bangkaw, the suwan. Being superstitious, the use of agimat showed that these people believed in the presence of higher beings and other things unseen; the natives believed. The term'Tagalog' may have been derived from the word taga-ilog or "river dwellers" referring to the Pasig River located further up north of the region. However, Wang Teh-Ming in his writings on Sino-Filipino relations points out that Batangas was the real center of the Tagalog tribe, which he identified as Ma-yi or Ma-i. According to the Chinese Imperial Annals, Ma-yi had its center in the province and extends to as far as Cavite, Rizal, Bataan, Mindoro, Nueva Ecija, some parts of Zambales, Tarlac. However, many historians interchangeably use the term Batangueño. Henry Otley Beyer, an American archaeologist showed in his studies that the early Batangueños had a special affinity with the precious stone known as the jade.
He named the Late Paleolithic Period of the Philippines as the Batangas Period in reco
