  53. 53.  "Taal is originally located in San Nicolas when volcano erupted (1574) They divided the municiplaites by 5 and chose Taal as the Capital of Batangas during 1581- 1597 then the volcano erupted again and it turned out Taal is moved again for the safety of the citizens which is now located near lemery." - Architect Arambulo Oral History from Taal Tourism Officer
  54. 54. Ang tunay na Taal Volcano ay hindi yung iconic volcano na nakikita sa Tagaytay. The volcano-like mountain that we see in Tagaytay is Mt. Binintian. Not the real Taal Volcano it only the back figure of it. Taal Volcano is also known as the smallest volcano in the world.  Ang Maliputo at Tawilis ay nakikita lamang sa Batangas Sinasabi rin na ang maliputo ay mga isdang talakitok na tumawid mula tubig alat (through Pansipit River) patungong lawa ng Taal. Sa paglipas ng panahon, pagbabago ng environment at water condition (from salty to fresh water) ay nagbago at sumarap di umano ang isdang ito na sya nating tinatawag na maliputo.
  55. 55. Taal was transferred in other place due to the Eruption of Taal Volcano; Taal came from Ta-ad which is an old batangueno term for sugar cane points. Ang Trivia tungkol kay Our Lady of Caysasay In 1603, a fisherman by the name of Juan Maningcad caught a little statue of the Blessed Virgin of the Immaculate Conception, about 10 1/2 inches tall, in his net while fishing along the Pansipit River in Barrio Caysasay of the town of Taal, Batangas. On seeing this marvel, Juan did not know what to say or do. He prostrated himself before the image and began to pray. The news spread and when it reached the town, the parish priest and judge went to Juan's house. Upon seeing the beautiful image of the Mother of God, they knelt down to venerate it and decided to take the statue to Taal, where a grand fiesta was celebrated and to this day continues to be celebrated on December 8 in honor of the Virgin.
