The Islamic City of Marawi is the capital city of the Province of Lanao del Sur.The city was formerly called Dansalan, a thriving town along the banks of Agus River and Lake Lanao. By virtue of Commonwealth Act No. 592, President Manuel L. Quezon approved on August 19, 1940 the conversion of the town of Dansalan into a city. It was the last city chartered under the Commonwealth of the Philippines.

On June 16, 1956, President Ramon Magsaysay signed Republic Act No. 1552 renamed Dansalan City into Marawi City.

On May 22, 1959, President Carlos P. Garcia approved Republic Act No. 2228 dividing the Province of Lanao into two: Lanao del Norte and Lanao del Sur. Under RA 2228, Marawi City was named as the capital of the Province of Lanao del Sur (Section 4).
