Located at the boundary of Quezon City and Manila, the Mabuhay Rotonda (originally called “Welcome Rotonda”) was built in 1948 by Architect Luciano Aquino during the term of Mayor Ponciano Bernardo. Designed as the gateway to Quezon City, its purpose is to greet visitors of the newly established capital. This is where three of Metro Manila’s busiest roads meet, namely: Espana Boulevard in Manila, Quezon Avenue and E. Rodriguez Avenue in Quezon City. It was renamed “Mabuhay” in 1995.

The Quezon City Hall is an imposing 14-storey edifice where the 1973 Philippine Constitution was signed. It is the administrative center of city government activities with the frontage punctuated by the refreshing view of a man-made lagoon and a mini-park.  In 2009, in line with the objective to rationalize the physical organization of City services for the public’s greater convenience, the construction of the “twin towers” or two eight-storey Civic Center Buildings was completed. In front of these is the extension of the City Hall Annex, which provides a wider service area and a comfortable and spacious lounge for taxpayers and business permit applicants.

Camp Crame is the national headquarters of the Philippine National Police, located along EDSA near Santolan Avenue. The 33-hectare installation was named in honor of Brigadier General Rafael Crame, the first general of the Philippine Constabulary. Basic training of police officers is conducted here. Across the street from Camp Crame is Camp Aguinaldo, the 178-hectare general headquarters of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. It is also home to the Department of National Defense, National Capital Regional Command, and the National Defense College of the Philippines, among other offices. It was established in 1935 as Camp Murphy in honor of Frank Murphy, the last governor general of the Philippines. In 1965, by virtue of Republic Act 4434, it was renamed as Camp Aguinaldo after the first Philippine President, Emilio Aguinaldo.

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas was established on January 3, 1949, as the country’s central monetary authority. In 1978, it inaugurated the BSP Security Complex Plant in East Avenue, Diliman which houses a banknote printing plant, a securities printing plant, a mint and a gold refinery. The banknote printing plant and the mint take care of producing currency notes and coins, respectively. The plant is also responsible for the production of checks, passports, official ballots, government contracts, lottery tickets and other security documents.
