Princess Lake

Legend has it that the waters from the lake inside Pulau Dayang can bestow fertility upon barren women. The lake was supposedly the favourite bathing place of a celestial princess.

one day a local prince chanced upon her while bathing and fell deeply in love with her. He sought the advice of a wise man who told him he should wash his face with the tears of a mermaid to win her love.

After they were married, they were blessed with a baby who died soon after birth and the princess then discovered her marriage was through trickery. After casting the baby’s body into the lake she blessed the waters with her magic fertility powers before returning to the heavens, never to appear again.
