    There is a sinister story behind this chedi which can be traced back to the 19th century A.D. Legend says that a young man who lived on the land began building this chedi for his mother. Working very hard and alone in the heat each day the sons mother agreed to bring him food at set times. However, one day the mother ran short on rice and rather than bringing him a large casket of rice she only brought him a small casket. Tired and very hungry the son got him self into a rage and before he knew what he was doing his mother was already laying dead before him. Nevertheless, the son continued to eat his food but was unable to finish it. It was at this point that he realized that his actions had brought terrible consequences to which he felt huge grief and guilt. In regret he sobbed knowing that what he had done was wrong and he could now do nothing to correct it. The man was later forced by law to finish the work he had began before been executed on this very spot.
