Legend Of Ninh Binh Mua Cave
Mua Cave is a strangely named location synonymous with ancient legends. According to legend, when King Tran Thai Tong returned to Hoa Lu to create Am Thai Vi, he often came to this mountain cave to listen to the concubines and beautiful women who sang and danced. As a result, locals refer to this location as Mua Cave. Mua Caves Ecolodge is the name of the English Dance Cave.
Furthermore, Ninh Binh Mua Cave is a location synonymous with national heritage. During the resistance wars to defend the land, the foot of Dance Mountain also served as a “mobile hospital” for the care and shelter of wounded soldiers and resistance fighters.
