    NBP Reservation

    On 1936, the Commonwealth of the Philippines enacted Commonwealth Act No. 67 and a new prison was built in Muntinlupa on 551 hectares of land.

    June 5, 2014, Department of Justice Undersecretary Francisco Baraan III, supervising official on the Bureau of Corrections and the NBP said that the National Penitentiary will be moved to Barangay San Isidro in Laur, Nueva Ecija. The Government plans to create a regional prison on Nueva Ecija through Public-Private Partnership.

    There are several landmarks in the reservation where the following could be seen:

  • The Bureau of Corrections Administration Building – This is a prison facade that houses the offices of the prison administration. The maximum security compound, consisting of 12 buildings called brigades are located at the western side of the facade. The structures were built in 1941, but it is the area of the medium security compound that is being shown in movies and in television. The maximum security compound was never shown in TV or in movies, except for the Office of the Director and the front view of the Maximum Security Compound.
  • Jamboree Lake – This is the smallest natural lake in the country, a favorite hang-out spot for nature lovers, as well as ordinary passers-by looking for a cool respite from the tropical heat. The lake has been in existence since time immemorial.
  • Memorial Hill – This is a small hill in the NBP reservation compound that cradles a World War II Vintage Japanese canon. The hill is likewise the burial place of Eriberto Misa the famous Prison's Director from 1937 to 1949.
  • Director's Quarters – The structure manifest an influence of a pre-war architecture that characterizes the outstanding edifice. This was built simultaneously with the Administration Building in 1941. This is also the official residence of the Director of Bureau of Corrections.
  • The Japanese Garden Cemetery – The cemetery is a burial place of Gen. Tomoyuki Yamashita, the Japanese general who became famous during the Japanese occupation of the country.
  • Katarungan Village

    On September 5, 1991, President Corazon C. Aquino issued Presidential Proclamation No. 792, which was amended by Presidential Proclamation No. 120 on December 15, 1992, to the effect that 104.22 hectares of land be developed into housing for employees of the Department of Justice and other government agencies.
