Barangay Saring faces Barangay Ticdalan on the other side of Tumagboc River. It is 1 1/2 kilometers from Banbanan and 8 1/2 kilometers from the poblacion.
This place was named after a spinster by that name who was a big landowner in the place. Saring owned most of the land there including a hilly farm about 2 hectares in the area. This hilly portion was so stony that only bamboo clumps thrived there. Beside this stony portion of the land lived Tia Saring. Before her death, Tia Saring who never married gathered all the residents of the place and allotted each a piece of land. After her death, her beneficiaries buried her in a spot not far from her house. The people mourned deeply the death of their benefactor and to perpetuate her memory they built their houses around Tia Saring's burial place and named their village after her.
At the present there are some people adopted some traditional beliefs about spirit offering known as "hatud sa uma" and the "Buhis or Buhisan" and the ceremonial conducted by the "Surhano."
After some generation the barangay gained improvement through the initiative of the barangay officials with the support of the people are striving to immobilize efforts to implement the modernization program of the government.
