Pasig City is one of the component cities of Metro Manila, Philippines. It is located on the eastern part of Metro Manila, bordering Rizal Province. Pasig City is bordered by Marikina City to the north, Mandaluyong City and Quezon City to the west, and Makati City, Pateros and Taguig City to the south. To the east, within Rizal Province are Antipolo City, Cainta and Taytay.

Covering 31 sq km (12 sq mi), Pasig City has a population of 620,000 (2011 estimate), and is one of the top ten most populous cities in the Philippines. The name Pasig comes from Sanskrit, passis, meaning sand (or as "pasir" in Malay).

Pasig City serves as the official capital of Rizal Province as it was incorporated into the province in 1901. However in 1975 Pasig City was carved out of Rizal Province to become part of Metro Manila. Since then, while it is still officially the capital of Rizal Province, the capitol and de facto capital of Rizal Province is now Antipolo City.
