Maharlika Village is one of the 38 barangays of Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines. It has an area of 54 hectares (130 acres) and has the biggest Muslim community in Metro Manila with a population of 23,470 as of the 2020 census.[2]

Maharlika Village, which is shaped almost like a square, is bounded by Barangay South Signal Village to the north, Upper Bicutan to the west, Central Bicutan to the west and south, and by Lower Bicutan and New Lower Bicutan to the east.

Originally a part of the old barrio Bicutan, the village was created in 1974 when President Ferdinand Marcos set aside 30 hectares (74 acres) of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Officers Village in Taguig to become a subdivision for Muslim Filipinos.[3] It had been settled by twenty Moro families since the 1950s, led by an imam named Muhammad Kusin. They lived in huts and had requested the government for their own community since 1964. The community grew to 480 families, which included members of the Moro elite, such as descendants of sultans from Mindanao, government officials, military officers, ambassadors and business executives. The government then created two more sitios to the barangay: Sitio Imelda Romualdez Marcos (after Imelda Marcos) and Sitio Bandara-Ingued.[2]
