The pagoda has many legends. One of them is that once upon a time, residents saw an old lady in red appear on top of the hill every night. She told them that one day, the Lord would pass by and build something of great importance. They decided to name the hill: Thien Mu Son which means Mountain of Lady from Heaven. Mr. Nguyen went pass the hill, heard of the legend and decided to build a pagoda and named it Thien Mu. This pagoda is considered as a symbol of Hue and an icon of Vietnam. Each of the seven layers are dedicated to the manushi-buddha (a Buddha that appeared in human form).
