History[eedit | eedit soorce]

Jimalalud wis foonded in 1797 as pairt o Tayasan. In 1910, it wis separatit frae Tayasan an became a unthirlt municipality.

Boondless succar cane fields, teepical o the northren landscape, green Jimalalud maist months o the year. It haes reportit rich deposits o coal, copper, airn an relatit compoonds o magnetite, pyrites an marcasite, but the lodes remain untouched. A Spainyie sodger wis said tae hae askit a native the name o the place, indicatin the aurie. The native thocht he wis referrin tae a tree, an sae informit the sodger that the tree wis cried a “hambabalud.”

In the late 1800s the Recollects biggit here a convent o hardfirths, an imposin structur that wis reputit tae be the biggest convent in the Province for ower a quairter o a century. The Revolution against Spain compelled the friars tae leave an the convent fell intae disrepair. Jimalalud wis made a toun unthirlt o Tayasan in 1910. In 1944 WWII guerillas burned doun the entire toun, leavin Jimalalud athoot a historical laundmerk staundin. Barrio Bankal wis the seat of the 7t Destrict Govrenment durin Warld War II.

The pageantry o its revivit Sinulog keeps Jimalalud’s releegious an cultural heritage alive in a colorful wey. Fiesta time an ither special occasions uisually bring on the toun’s stallions for the excitin, if brutal, spectacle o the Paaway sa Kabayo.

Maist times, Jimalalud is serene an green, an the plaza is the picturesque public space for imbibin the toun’s pastoral ambience.[6]
