MUNICIPALITY OF GUINDULMAN

Guindulman is an old town situated in the eastern part of Bohol. It is said that this town used to be called Guindulman, meaning “overtaken by darkness”. The story is that formerly there were only 2 towns organized in this part of Bohol namely, Jagna and Batuanan (now Alicia).

 
Travelers starting from either of these 2 towns were sure to be overtaken by darkness in this place; hence the name which was later changed to Guindulman.
