History of Sariaya, Quezon, Philippines
Sariaya was named after one of the town's largest river, Sadyaya.
- article copied verbatim from the LGu of Quezon province: www.quezon.gov.ph
Bounded on the North by the legendary Mt. Banahaw, on the south by Tayabas Bay, on the west by Candelaria and San Juan (Batangas) and on the east by Tayabas and Lucena City, Sariaya is known far and wide as the "town" of palatial houses.
Sariaya has an area of about 23,980 hectares, the greater part of which is planted with coconuts, populated with 128,248 (2007 Census).
"S A R I A"
It is said that by the middle of the 16th century, the fishermen inhabited the place now known as the barrio Timbaga near the seashore in Sariaya. One day the Spaniards visited the place. Not knowing where they were, they approached a certain woman and asked her what the name of the place was. The woman, not knowing Spanish and thinking perhaps that her name was what the Spaniards wanted to know, said "Saria". The Spaniards wrote "Saria" on their notebooks as the name of the settlement. And while the Spaniards were talking with each other, the natives heard them utter the words "Saria-ya". Hence, the words traveled from mmouth to mouth and became a common saying until the twowords were combined.
In 1599, the franciscan missionaries arrived in Sariaya. They constructed a church and made St. Francis of Assisi as Patron Saint of the town. Six years later, another chuch was built to replace the old one.
Because of constant Moro raids, the settlers fled farther inland carrying with them an image of Christ at the Cross, which they saved when their settlement was being burned. Upon reaching the place where the present town of Sariaya is located, the image suddenly became so heavy that the settlers decided to stayed there and founded a settlement.
Besides the raids of Moro Pirates, the town suffered natural and man-made calamities such as: Mt. Banahaw, then an active volcano, erupted in 1539. It is said that for (2)two days, molten lava and stones flooded the town destroying countless houses and properties. The eruption was repeated on January 18, 1909.
An earthquake came in this town in 1734 and destryed the church built in Tumbaga I. In 1756 and 1786, an epidemic killing hundreds of people occured in the town. It was repeated in 1872 and 1882.
Fire hits the town in 1831, 1837, 1847, 1930 and 1951.
Bandits rampaged the town in 1838. The town Captain is beheaded. A certain Don Tiburcio Rodriguez was also killed. The attacked was repeated in 1853. This time, the bandits killed the commissioners of the town, burned one house and held their celebrations in Casa Real. The last attack recorded was when the Bandits tried to ransack the municipal building, but they failed because of the resistance of the brave policemen of the town.

Natural Resources of Sariaya, Quezon, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
