|Description:||Supreme Ruler/Ruler of Time|
Kan-Laon is the name of an ancient Visayan god. During pre-Hispanic times, he was worshiped by the natives as their Supreme Ruler. Kan-Laon means "He Who Is King Of Time".
Mt. Canlaon, situated on the island of Negros, is the highest mountain in the Visayas region. The mountain is said to be where Laon made his presence to the people. In ancient times, native priests (babaylan) would climb up the mountain and do rituals every good harvest season or when there was a special ceremony. They would also offer gifts as a sign of respect. Canlaon City now stands beside the mountain.
