Salt Lake Story


It all started when a very tired and thirsty monk found his way here. At that time, Salt Lake was a lush garden with vineyards. The owner of the garden is a grumpy old woman. The monk asked for a bunch of grapes from an old woman who shaded her garden under the vineyard. As if she didn't see the grapes hanging from the vineyard, the woman said, "My vineyard did not give any grapes this year." That's when a curse came out of the monk's mouth, saying that he would be turned into salt. As a result, everything became salt.
