When putting your feet in Trinh Nu cave, the first thing you can see is a rocky statue of a woman who lies on the ground with the long hair. This woman draws her hopeless eyes to the sea and waits for something in Trong cave.

According to the legend, in a fishing village, there was a graceful and beautiful girl. However, her family was very poor. Therefore, she was hired to work for a rich boss. This boss wanted to get married with the girl but she didn’t agree because she had felt in love with another man. The boss was very angry and banished her to a wild island, which made the girl become hungry and exhausted. At a rainy night, she sanctified a rocky statue.
