Culiat history

Angeles  City was formerly called Barrio Culiat,  where there are trees that grew abundantly in the area at the time when the first settlers founded the town is now the city’s old district.

Origin :

 Culiat or Kuliat was derived from at least two possible plant names. One is from the plant kuliát, Gnetum indicum Lour. Merr. a woody vine that abound in the place or a shrub of the the same Gnetum family. While the other one is a Diospyros specie, of the black wood family. This family of trees includes the famous Philipine ebony wood, and Talang  (Diospyros discolor Willd. [D. philippensis Desr.]). Types of talang includes the known Kamagong or Mabolo tree in many Philippine languages. Culiat Street is said to be the area where the old San Fernando barrio of Culiat was located, near the chapel of Apu Mamacalulu. An old barrio of Tandang Sora in Quezon City is also named Culiat (or Coliat).
