According to legends, 2 families were fighting to separate their children who are in love. Mat Raya has a beautiful daughter, and Mat Cincang a handsome son, and as they are best friends they agreed to marry their children. However on the day of the wedding it was discovered that the Son of Mat Cincang had an affair with another girl. On the night of the wedding, not only were they verbally abusing each other but followed by throwing of the pots and pans of the gravy and kettle of hot water to each other. Then, lightning struck them and changed them to Gunung Raya and Gunung Cincang.
