Aurora refers to the dawn of the new day, new hope, new era and progress.  The essence of such a word is exemplified as the “Gateway to the Mallig Region” if one comes from the southern direction. 

 

The town Aurora is composed of thirty three (33) barangays.  It was originally a barrio of the municipality of Gamu called Dalig.  It became a Municipal District on August 27, 1927.

 

Aurora is located on the Central Western part of the province.  It is bounded by the municipality of San Manuel; on the east by the municipality of Burgos; on the west by the province of Ifugao, particularly the municipality of Alfonsolista; and on the south by the municipality of Cabatuan, Isabela.

 

It is accessible from three directions, through the national and provincial roads, either via Cabatuan, San Manuel or Burgos.
