Libingan ng mga Bayani

Libingan ng mga Bayani (Cemetery of the Heroes) is a national cemetery within Fort Bonifacio (formerly known as Fort McKinley) in Taguig City, Metro Manila in the Philippines. It was established as a fitting resting place for Filipino military personnel from privates to generals, as well as heroes and martyrs. Among those buried in the cemetery are most of the defenders of Bataan, Corregidor, Leyte, Leyte Gulf, Ormoc Bay, the battles off in Samar, Mindoro, Palawan, Luzon, recapured the battles in Bataan, Corregidor in 1945 Manila, Visayas,Mindanao from the battles of Balete, Besang Pass, Capas, Antipolo, Nueva Ecija, Tanay and other Battlefields during World War II. It also contains the national Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Former Philippine presidents Carlos P. Garcia and Diosdado Macapagal are also buried in the cemetery.

On the cemetery's entrance it is written: "I do not know the dignity of his birth, but I know the glory of his death"

In 2006, the Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB) council started exploring alternative sites for Libingan annexes in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Only one has completed so far, the P24-million, five-ha Libingan extension at Camp Hernandez in Dingle, Iloilo.

The President of the Philippines has the sole authority to grant permission for individuals to be buried in the national cemetery.
