According to legend, this story involves King Kabilaprom and Prince Thammaban. Born to a wealthy family, Prince Thammaban was very intelligent since he was only seven years old, as King Kabilaprom asked him three questions with the conditions that if his answers were correct, King Kabilaprom was willing to sacrifice his head but if they were wrong, the Prince must do likewise. The questions focus on the good signs of a person at each period of the day from morning to noon until the evening. To the surprise of the King, the Prince answered the questions correctly. As per the good sign of a person in the morning is at the face, at the chest at noon, and at the foot in the evening. The King then had to cut off his head as proposed. However, the Kings head was so powerful that the whole world would be on fire if the head touched the earth, a serious drought would occur and all the oceans water would dry up should it be thrown up in the sky or down in the ocean, respectively. Evidently, the King had assigned his seven angel daughters to take turns carrying his head clockwise around Phra Sumane Mountain.
