Indang's Kalamay | Things to do in Indang-Cavite
|Address:||Brgy. Tres, Indang, Cavite|
Also called St. Gregory the Great Parish, Indang Church is one among the oldest churches in Cavite. Established in 1611 by Father Angelo Armano, Indang Church is made of pumice, corals, and adobe. Inside, the church is unique in its hand-painted trompe l'oeil ceiling, an optical illusion that makes objects appear to exist in three dimensions. Like other old churches in the Philippines, Indang Church has commemorative gravestones on its walls, near the pulpit area. Visitors can also climb up the belfry tower to see the old church bells and have a glimpse of the town from its windows.
This antique house was where Andres Bonifacio was imprisoned in April 28, 1897, together with his wife Gregoria de Jesus and brother Procopio Bonifacio. Andres Bonifacio is considered the Father of Philippine Revolution, and shares the limelight with Jose Rizal as Philippines' national heroes. The brothers Bonifacio and Gregoria de Jesus were transferred to the town of Naic in April 29, and then to Maragondon in May 4. Later, the brothers were tried for execution for having defied the government. The two were shot on a hill in Maragondon in May 10, 1897. The antique house now serves as Indang's municipal building.
Indang's public park, Heroes Park commemorates Indang-based heroes and the defenders of Bataan and Corregidor. Central to the park is a bust of Severino de Las Alas, a teacher and philanthropist in the late 19th century. He was a Councilor at the 1897 Tejeros Convention, and was one among those who signed the Pact of Biyak-na-Bato in San Miguel, Bulacan. He was also a guerilla leader in Cavite, and served as Municipal President twice in the early 20th century. Meanwhile, five other Indang-based revolutionary heroes are commemorated on one marble wall in the park. They are Jose Elias Coronel y Rosal, Hugo Ilagan, Ambrosio Mojica, Raymundo Jeciel y Tamio, and Jose Mojica y Diokno.
