Miniatures that describe one of the most historic moments in Miagao as a pueblo on May 7, 1754. The biggest Muslim invasion in Miagao was part of the centuries of conflicts between the Spanish and Christianized Visayan allies against the Islamic tribes of Mindanao. Historical records showed 21 Muslim caracoas landed in Miagao with over 2,000 warriors for an epic battle against thousands of Miagawanons and Spanish soldiers. This historic moment is recreated in this diorama by Sulu Garden artists. Read more Episode 1: http://sulugarden.com/articles/blog/defending-cotta-thoughts-of-a-comisario-in-the-morning-of-salakayan

The HOME TREES of the fruit bats of Miag-ao. Just 100 meters from Sulu Garden and at the back of the municipal are the roosting trees of fruit bats. Declared as a bat sanctuary, the bats live mainly within two bubog trees over a century old and considered enchanted by the people of Miag-ao. Atty.

The days after typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan.
The original SOS Philippines singing group performing in November 26, 2013 at Sulu Garden (Miagao, Iloilo, Philippines) as part of the benefit concert called Sagip Iskowela to raise funds to help the sons and daughters of Yolanda victims enrolled at University of Philippines Visayas (UPV). Sagip Iskowela (meaning Save our Scholars) aims to develop means to sustain them through the difficult times when their parents in Leyte, Samar, Capiz, Aklan and Iloilo are trying to recover from the devastation of the supertyphoon Yolanda (Haiyan). With the sponsorship of Sulu Garden, the various UPV student organizations from these islands blended the music of various artists in a unique 3 hour performance –SOS Philippines, UP Sonata, Virtouso, Choristers and special guests performances by Tau Muhammad, Armand TJ and Ruby Rizza Villabert. The success of the concert was made possible in a large part by the many Miagao businessmen and friends who lent their equipment and expertise to support this program, making Miagao a great university town.
