Alimodian Barangay - Manduyog
Feast Day: January 31
Patron Saint: Holy Child Jesus
During the Spanish occupation, this place was a woodland. The place became infamous for being the hiding place of the brigands in the wood who steal animal from surrounding barrios.
According to the old stories of elderly folks, there are some Spanish soldiers who visited the place and ask for the name of the place. An innocent resident responded by saying "ang mga buyong nagapangguyod kasapatan" (brigands who pull out animals). In a short understanding of the Spaniards, they call the place Manduyog.
Manduyog started to have an increase in settlement before the war in the 1920s at the same time the woods started to disappear. The place became an independent barangay in 1969. Twenty (20) families each bought 100 sq. m. homelot which costs twenty (20) pesos each.
