FAMED for its perfect cone shape, Mayon Volcano has given the province of Albay a flattering amount of foot arrival any day of the year. But behind its majestic looks, Mayon for all these town people is a story of star-crossed lovers who's tale remains alive to date. Just recently, people have been sharing photos of the volcano erupting and referring its rage to Daragang Magayon and Panganoron's ill fate.

But the lady has refused his offer to marry her as she was convinced Paratuga was not the man for her. Magayon soon confessed to her father Tiong Magayon that she was in love with Panganoron, a Tagalog. Then, intermarriage among tribal groups was not allowed and so she asked for his father's help to fulfill her heart's desire. However, Paratuga learned of her affair and decided to kidnap her and force her hand in marriage. In the effort to rescue her, both Magayon and Panganoron died.

Mayon Volcano allegedly came from the legend of Daragang Magayon and Panganoron’s love story, which is now making rounds online. Mt. Mayon is one of the biggest headlines of local news outlets nationwide and several social media pages after showing irregularities causing tremors and eruptions.

Trending on social media Thursday is this photo of Mayon with ashes and clouds surrounding its perfect cone. It was taken by Bro. Jun Santiago, CSsR, a freelance photojournalist who took the image midday Wednesday, while waiting for good photos. "We were in Barangay Tagaytay, in the municipality of Camalig. I was really waiting for an image of the ash fall pero yung hangin pakanluran," Bro Jun said.

When he saw the ash formation resembling a praying couple, he thought, here it was. His winning shot. Bro. Jun even thought of turning it into a meme or something for the internet "parang yung mga 'Pray for' [na nauuso] but as a photojournalist, I can't do that."

He posted the photo online and was surprised. It had turned viral. Netizens were quick to reference the legend of Mt. Mayon and the artwork of Filipino illustrator Kerby Rosanes.
Said Bro. Jun, he was aware of the myth and the illustrated image. "But I didn't visualize it until I saw it online."

Recently, someone has posted another similar and detailed story of the legend of the Mayon Volcano, which it allegedly started on the love story of Daragang Magayon and Panganoron. Daragang Magayon (the lovely one) was a beautiful maiden, the daughter of Makusog (chief of their tribe) was strolling the river when she suddenly fell into the water and cried for help.

Luckily, Pangaronon (the proud one) and his bodyguard Amihan (the cold one) heard her cry and immediately rescued her out of the water. Panganoron was quickly attracted by the beauty of Magayon and the lady had also a feeling for the brave guy who asked the tribe leader to marry his daughter. Unfortunately, Makusog could not allow his daughter to marry Panganoron since their law forbids marriage outside the clan. However, the tribal leader wants Magayon to be happy.

Pagtuga (the eruptive one) and the most ardent suitor of Magayon who refused to marry him learned the intention of Panganoron. Patuga kidnapped Makusog and threatened Daragang Magayon that he will kill her father if she will not marry him. Magayon and Patuga got married but during the wedding, Panganoron and his men arrived who struck the eruptive one. However, a poisonous arrow fell on Magayon’s breast prompting Panganoron rushed to her aid but an enemy beheaded him. Daragang Magayon was buried after the battle and the entire land mourned for her demise. A mountain where she was laid mysteriously appeared and now known as Mayon. Every time Mayon is about to erupt it is said that Patuiga is challenging Panganoron, while when the volcano is calm, Panganporon was embracing Magayon.
