The crater of Mt Eden seen here was called Te Ipu-a-Mataaho (the bowl of Mataaho) because this is where Mataaho lived. It is also said that the other volcanic cones of Auckland were formed when Mataaho’s wife left him and took his clothes, so the goddess Mahuika sent fires to warm him. http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/photograph/3920/maungawhau-mt-eden
