Historical Background

Barangay Taluksangay is situated 19 kilometers east of Zamboanga City's commercial district.  It was in this village where the first Islamic culture was introduced in 1885 and where the first Islamic Mosque was constructed.

This attests to the fact that Taluksangay was the first center of Islamic propagation in the Zamboanga Peninsula.

Since then, Muslim religious missionaries from Arabia, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Borneo have been flocking to this village.  Tourists from all over the world, most particularly from Europe and America and dignitaries from Islamic countries never fail to visit this place.

Sheik-Al Islam, a representative of the Sultan of Turkey, visited Taluksangay in the later part of 1914.
