3. Legend of Suoi Tien – Quang Nam.

Learning about Suoi Tien through local people, the children of Que Son land recounted that there is a folk legend about this stream:

According to that legend, in the past, this was a mysterious stream hidden in the middle of a forest of tall trees. It is protected by tangled vines surrounding it, blocking the sunlight. On bright moonlit nights, on the intertwined leaves of trees or on flat rocks, there are fairies who come together to sit and play chess.

One day, a woodcutter accidentally came across it. Curious about the strange scene and a person who loved playing chess, the woodcutter came to watch the Fairies play chess. He was so attentive that he didn’t know how much time had passed. It wasn’t until the game ended that the woodcutter was about to stand up to continue going into the forest to cut firewood, only to realize that the tools around him had rotted and his hair had turned gray.

When looking into the water, he saw on his forehead the words “one immortal day, ten thousand days on earth”. From then on, people called the stream where the woodcutter looked at himself and where he sat to watch the fairy play chess as Suoi Tien.
