Taguig City has significantly contributed to the culture and history of the Philippines. This is evident in its well-preserved historic sites, each telling a unique tale about the city.

Among the historical attractions is the Bamboo Shrine located in Barangay Ligid-Tipas, which was a center of conflict during the Japanese era.

The phases 1 and 2 of the Taguig Cultural Mapping Project took place at Kalayaan Hall in the SM Aura Office Tower on June 7, 2024. These stages included Scoping, Orientation, and Social Preparation for the project.

The NCCA Cultural Mapping Program aids in identifying and listing Taguig City's unique cultural assets. Its objective is to record the community's distinct cultural resources, create interest in cultural heritage, and develop a heritage conservation council by utilizing significant data and implementing laws to protect local cultural wealth.

In a message from Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano, she urged city's barangay officials and department heads to prioritize the program to preserve the city's history and culture.

"I am grateful to the NCCA for their visit and for their valuable time and attention. I hope that we can reciprocate this by actively participating. Our love for our barangay and city is important and should be reflected in how we take care of our history," said Cayetano.
