The name Thien Cam is derived from a special legendary, it said that as passing by the zone king Hung had a rest at Ky La Mountain (Thien Cam is the normal name) and he heard the waves of the sea and singing of the pine in the wind. Those made him think it as a melody created by the Heaven’s Lute.  With such a great feeling, he renamed Ky La into a magic name of “Heaven’s Lute” or Thien Cam, which remains till today.
