The imposing sandstone blocks have inspired legends such as that of the King's Chamber.

This legend illustrates how the sandstone cornices served as troglodyte habitat (houses carved into the rock). A lord and his princess, pursued by attackers, are said to have found refuge in a cave hidden in the gigantic rocky outcrop. They would have lived there until a traitor revealed their hiding place.
