Etymology[edit] "Lanao" means "lake", derived from ranao. The province, situated at basin of Lake Lanao, is known as the land of the "Maranaos" (which means "the "people of the lake").[4] History[edit] Further information: Lanao (province) Sultanate of Lanao[edit] Main article: Sultanate of Lanao Lanao was first explored by the Spaniards in 1689, upon which they discovered a well-settled community named Dansalan at the lake's northern end. Lanao was the seat of the Sultanate of Lanao.[4] During the Pre-Spanish time, there are 4 important boundaries hold the power of appointing a new sultan namely: Bakayawan, Dalama, Madamba and Sawer. In appointing a new sultan the permission of these four boundaries are needed to validate the new sultan appointed to his position.

Division[edit] In 1959, Lanao was divided into two provinces, Lanao del Norte
Lanao del Norte
and Lanao del Sur, under Republic Act
Republic Act
No. 2228. Marawi
Marawi
was designated as the capital of Lanao del Sur.[6] The city was renamed the "Islamic City of Marawi" in 1980, and is currently the Philippines' only city having a predominantly Muslim population.[4]

Proposed Maranaw province[edit] In 1971, Republic Act
Republic Act
No. 6406, which sought to create a new province out of eastern Lanao del Sur
Lanao del Sur
(now corresponding to the province's first congressional district), was approved on October 4, 1971. The province was to consist of the municipalities of Bubong, Ditsaan-Ramain (including what is now Buadiposo-Buntong), Kapai, Lumba-Bayabao (including what is now Maguing), Marantao, Masiu, Mulondo, Saguiaran, Piagapo, Poona Bayabao, Tamparan, Taraka and Wao (including what is now Bumbaran), with the chartered city of Marawi serving as the new provincial capital.[7] The division never took place due to the declaration of Martial law in the Philippines
Philippines
on September 21, 1972, which disrupted the elections for 1973. Joining the ARMM[edit] In a 1989 plebiscite, Lanao del Sur
Lanao del Sur
voted to join the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao
Mindanao
(ARMM), but Marawi
Marawi
City elected to remain outside ARMM.[4] It later joined ARMM in 2001 following the plebiscite that sought to expand the autonomous region. The Battle of Marawi
Marawi
began and ended in 2017. The battle was against ISIL-affiliated militants, a number of which where Malaysian citizens. The battle destroyed most of the cityscape of Marawi
Marawi
City and killed hundreds of civilians and Filipino soldiers. A petition was released in support for the usage of the torogan as inspiration for the rehabilation of Marawi
Marawi
after the Battle of Marawi. The petition was released in opposition to the possible Manila Rehabilation Effect that the government plans to impose. The Manila-style rehabilation would establish shanty shouses and buildings without Maranao
Maranao
architectural styles, thus destroying Marawi's Maranao cultural skyline. The petition advocates a Warsaw-style Rehabilation Effect, where the culture and styles of a particular area is used as foundation for rehabilitation of built heritage and landscape. Among the local architectural styles that may be used under the Warsaw-style are the okir, sarimanok, and inspirations from the torogan. The Warsaw-style is also foreseen to boost tourism in the city in the long-run due to the cultural aesthetics it would bring. Governors after People Power Revolution 1986[edit]
