Now in the Bacolod City, Sugar Bowl of the Philippines, the largest chain of memorial parks – Golden Haven.
Bacolod is the highly urbanized capital, communication, trade and service center of the Province of Negros Occidental, one of the twin provinces of Negros Island in the cluster of the Visayan Islands in the heart of the Philippine Archipelago.
Bacolod, the “Sugar Bowl of the Philippines,” is one of the most progressive and elite cities in the country. Along its highway, sugarcane plantation is a typical scene; coconut and rice are also grown. The people are engaged in livestock, fishing, and pottery. Bacolod was derived from the Ilonggo word “bakolod” meaning “stonehill” since the settlement was founded in 1770 on a stonehill area, now the district of Granada and the former site of the Bacolod Murcia Milling Company.
