Quezon City Philippines

Quezon City Philippines (Filipino: Lungsod Quezon), is the former capital and the most populous city in the Philippines. Located on the island of Luzon, Quezon City (popularly known to Filipinos as simply QC) is one of the cities and municipalities that comprise Metro Manila, the National Capital Region. The city was named after Manuel L. Quezon, the former president of the Commonwealth of the Philippines who founded the city and developed it to replace Manila as the country's capital. Quezon City is not located in and should not be confused with Quezon province, which was also named after the president.

Being the former capital, many government offices are located in the city, including the Batasang Pambansa, the seat of the House of Representatives, which is the lower chamber in the Philippine Congress. The main campuses of noteworthy Philippine universities such as the Ateneo de Manila University and the University of the Philippines are also located here.

Quezon City is the richest local government unit in the country in terms of current assets, cash in banks, share of internal revenue allotment (IRA), gross income, and gross net income. It remains the only Philippine city without any debt to banks as it operates on a surplus fund of over 2 billion pesos. The city features many spacious parks, tree-lined boulevards, and lots of commercial areas, popular with shoppers all over the metropolis. Most of the city is composed of residential areas.

Quezon City is also the major entertainment capital of the Philippines, as many Filipino TV Shows, music, and movies are produced here. The major TV networks in the Philippines have their main stations in Quezon City.

In 1984, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints built the scenic Manila Philippines Temple here because of the large number of members in the region. The Iglesia ni Cristo installed in Quezon City their headquarters on Commonwealth Avenue, New Era barangay: center of operations as well as a large temple and the New Era University.

However, the majority of the population is Roman Catholic, and in 2002, Quezon City was made see for two new Catholic dioceses:Cubao and Novaliches, as the very populous Archdiocese of Manila was carved up and five new dioceses created.
