Tambulig is a municipality located on the northeast part of the Zamboanga del Sur. It is composed of 31 barangays; four of them are urbanized while the rest are still classified as rural lands. According to the 2000 census, Tambulig has a population of 31,299 people dispersed through 6,078 households. All in all, Tambulig has a total land area of 15,766 hectares, which makes up about 2.14% of all of the total land area of the whole Zamboanga del Sur province. The 4 urban barangays make up an approximate area of 1,570 hectares (9.9% of the municipal area) while the 27 barangays make up 14,209 hectares of the municipality. Tambulig is classified as a 4th class municipality.

The municipality is bounded on the north by the municipality of Josefina, on the south by municipality of Aurora, on the west by the municipalities of Ramon Magsaysay and Molave, and on the east by the municipality of Bonifacio, which is already under the province of Misamis Occidental. On the southeast part can be found the only major bay in the municipality, Panguil Bay, which embraces approximately 14 kilometers of coastline.

Tambulig became a municipality on December 27, 1957, by virtue of Executive Order No. 282 as ratified by the late President Carlos P. Garcia. Tambulig was extracted from the mother municipalities of Aurora and Molave, both of Zamboanga del Sur. At its creation, Tambulig originally had 41 barangays but when barangay Gumahan became the municipality Josefina, it carried with it 13 of the barangays, leaving behind 28. After a year, three more barangays were added under the Provincial Board of Zamboanga del Sur, raising the total to its present 31.

Tambulig’s name is an amalgamation of “Tambul”, the vernacular word for drum, and “Ilig”, a pioneering Subano Hunter of the place. Legend has it that he disappeared mysteriously with his drum, but its sounds could still be ehard on nights when then moon was full. Pioneers and early settlers would then say that they heard the “drum of Ilig”, in the vernacular “tambul ni Ilig”, which is finally shortened to Tambulig.

    Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?

    Thanks a lot!

    Everything posted made a bunch of sense.
    However, think about this, what if you added a little content?

    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website,
    but what if you added a title that grabbed people’s attention?
    I mean Tambulig : Zamboanga del Sur is a little boring.
    You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they
    create post headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might add
    a related video or a related picture or two to get people excited about everything’ve got
    to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your website a little bit more interesting.

    I think that what you wrote made a great deal of sense.
    However, think on this, suppose you were to write a killer post title?

    I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good, but what if you added a title that grabbed people’s attention?
    I mean Tambulig : Zamboanga del Sur is kinda vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create post headlines to get viewers to open the
    links. You might add a video or a pic or two to get people excited about
    everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.
