'''Manila''' (Philippine English: ) is the capital (Capital city) and second largest city (list of cities in the Philippines) of the Philippines. It is one of the sixteen cities (Cities of the Philippines) which, along with the municipality (Municipalities of the Philippines) of Pateros (Pateros, Metro Manila), make up Metro Manila, the National Capital Region (Capital region), whose overall population is around 12 million.
The city of Manila is located on the eastern shore of Manila Bay and is bordered by the cities of Navotas and Caloocan to the north; Quezon City and San Juan (San Juan, Metro Manila) to the northeast; Mandaluyong to the east; Makati to the southeast, and Pasay to the south. It has a total population of 1,652,171 according to the 2010 census
Manila (and more broadly, Metro Manila) is the economic and political capital of the Philippines, home to extensive commerce and some of the most historically and culturally significant landmarks in the country, as well as the seat (Seat of government) of the executive (Malacañan Palace) and judicial branches (Supreme Court of the Philippines) of the government (Politics of the Philippines). Manila was listed as a global city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network in 2012. Manila is also the host to the Embassy of the United States (Embassy of the United States, Manila) and the Holy See Embassy (Apostolic Nunciature) (Holy See–Philippines relations).
Manila has many scientific and educational institutions, numerous sport facilities, and other culturally and historically significant venues. The city is politically divided into six legislative districts (Legislative districts of Manila) and consists of sixteen places: Binondo (Binondo, Manila), Ermita (Ermita, Manila), Intramuros, Malate (Malate, Manila), Paco (Paco, Manila), Pandacan (Pandacan, Manila), Port Area (Port of Manila), Quiapo (Quiapo, Manila), Sampaloc (Sampaloc, Manila), San Andrés (San Andres, Manila), San Miguel (San Miguel, Manila), San Nicolas (San Nicolas, Manila), Santa Ana (Santa Ana, Manila), Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz, Manila), Santa Mesa (Santa Mesa, Manila) and Tondo (Tondo, Manila). These places are towns and communities absorbed by Manila the 19th Century.
The earliest written account of the city is the 10th-century Laguna Copperplate Inscription which describes a Malay kingdom (Kingdom of Maynila) in what is now Manila maintaining diplomatic relations with the Indianized Kingdom of Medang (Medang Kingdom) in modern-day Java. The city had preferential trade with Ming Dynasty China, which registered the place as "東都" (''Dongdu (Kingdom of Tondo)''). Volume 5 of 東西洋考 (A study of the Eastern and Western Oceans) mentions that Luzon first sent tribute to Yongle Emperor in 1406 It then became a province of the Maharajanate of Majapahit and was called by its Sanskrit title, "षेलुरोन्ग्" (''Selurong'') or simply Maynilà (Kingdom of Maynila), shortened from the Arabic nickname for Selurong, امان الله (Amanillah) meaning, "Security of God" or from the word "Maynilad", a native Tagalog term indicating the presence of Nilad flowers.

By the 15th century, it was nominally Islamized until the Spanish Conquistadors arrived via Mexico. They renamed the area ''Nuevo Reino de Castilla'' (New Kingdom of Castille) and shortened the nickname, Maynilà to Manila and using it as the official name.
Manila eventually became the center of Spanish activity in the Far East (Spanish East Indies) and one end of the Manila-Acapulco Galleon trade route linking Europe, Latin America and Asia.
