Read More on Hua Ma Cave


The Hua Ma Cave is a mesmerising beauty whose brilliance is only second to the interesting legend associated with it. Locals believe that long ago, a king and his staff were travelling through the jungle. Upon approaching the Hua Ma cave, their horses became paralysed with fear and refused to cross a stream near the cave. Puzzled by the animals' behaviour, the king enquired about the place and learned that the cave was inhabited by the spirits of innocent people who had been killed. The king decided to free these souls from their misery and to do so; he had his soldiers behead the horses and sent their heads downstream as he recited Buddhist scriptures. This ritual freed the souls and purified the cave from their presence.
