And the legend of the foundation is as follows. Long ago, three brothers began to build a fortress. And everything that they built in a day collapsed. An old man passed by and found out about their problem and advised him to sacrifice a girl who would come to them the next day and wall her alive in the wall of the fortress.

This girl was the wife of the younger brother, and her name was Rozaf. The girl humbly accepted her fate, but asked for the opportunity to continue raising her young son.
