The iconic Davao City Hall has symbolized the city through the years. While buildings around it have changed, this has stayed faithful in all those times. The only changed it experienced was the addition of the annex behind it. Suffered shots and destruction during the war, it witnessed the changes of the city, including the signing of the charter which was the birthday of the city.

It was formerly a municipal hall then later became a city hall upon the signing of the charter. It is the center of the city which means a 0 kilometer and a start of road markers. The funny thing about

Davao City Hall is that it was mislabeled as Manila when evidently it is Davao.
