The City of Pasig (Filipino: Lungsod ng Pasig) is one of the cities and municipalities that make up Metro Manila in the Philippines. It used to be the capital of the province of Rizal before Metro Manila was formed. Located along the eastern border of Metro Manila, Pasig City is bordered on the west by Quezon City and Mandaluyong City; to the north by Marikina City; to the south by Makati City, Pateros, and Taguig City; and to the east by the municipality of Cainta in the province of Rizal.

Pasig City is a primarily residential-industrial town but it is increasingly becoming a commercial area. Along its western border is the eastern (and arguably more significant) half of the Ortigas Center, one of the top business districts in the metropolis (the western half is in Mandaluyong City). Found here are numerous high-rise office buildings, residential condominiums, and schools. The University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P), one of the most expensive universities in the country, is located here, as well as the head office of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines. Northwest of Ortigas Center is the Meralco Compound, home of the head offices of Meralco (Manila Electric Company), which is the largest electrical distribution company in the Philippines. The headquarters of the Philippine Stock Exchange, which is also home to one of its trading floors, is located here. Due to this, the barangay of San Antonio has one of the largest incomes for a local government unit in the country, larger than most small towns.

Being the former capital of Rizal, the provincial capitol is still located in Pasig City. Located along Shaw Boulevard, Barangay Kapitolyo.

Rizal High School, one of the biggest high schools in the world in terms of student population, is located in Pasig.

History

Pasig was founded in July 1573 with the inauguration of the mission-parish of Pasig. It received its first bell with the Our Lady of the Visitation as the patron saint of Pasig. But in 1587, Our Lady of Immaculate Conception replaced Our Lady of the Visitation as the patron saint of Pasig.

On June 11, 1901 the province of Rizal was created through Act No. 137 of Philippine Commission. Pasig was incorporated into the province of Rizal, and was designated as the capital of the new province.

In 1975, Pasig was carved out of Rizal province and became part of Metro Manila when the Metro Manila Commission (pre-cursor of Metro Manila Authority and later Metropolitan Manila Development Authority) was created by Pres. Marcos through Presidential Decree 824.

In July 1994, Pasig was converted into a highly urbanized city through Republic Act 7829. And in December 1994, President Fidel Ramos signed it into law, which was ratified through a plebiscite on January 21, 1995.
