Hells Kitchen is a depression but the local traditional legend highly believed that there once lived a rich family in the 17th century. The family owned a large farm and livestock while the other families lived in poverty. The rich family didn’t support the local people in any way despite its richness. The rich family used milk from livestock for bathing and washing. This annoyed the Gods and curse extended to the rich family. The Gods punishment was a heavy torrential rain. The local people heard a strange sound in the night and were all surprised to see the rich family had vanished. The landscape is valued for its sacredness. The people around it go there to pray to the Gods if they have problems e.g rain, disease e.t.c and their problems are solved.
