Lady Po Nagar
Lady Po Nagar/Yan Po Nagar (杨婆那加), was the founder of the Cham people according to legends. She originated from a peasant family in the mountains of Khánh Hòa Province. Spirits assisted her when she sailed on a drift piece of sandalwood to China, where she married a Chinese crown prince, the son of the Emperor of China, with whom she had two children, and then became Queen of Champa.
When Lady Po Nagar wanted to return to Champa to visit her family, the Prince refused to let her go, but she flung the sandalwood into the ocean, disappeared with her children and reappeared at Nha Trang to her family. When the Chinese prince tried to follow her back to Nha Trang, she was furious, and turned him and his fleet into stone.
