Rock, sitting on the hill slope of Lion Rock, is an erect rock resembling a woman carrying a baby. Legend has it that the wife of a fisherman, climbed up the hill everyday, in hopes for the return of her husband. Without learning the fisherman’s death, she climbed up the hill with her son as usual and the merciful Goddess of the Sea turned them into a rock for her loyalty.

Amah Rock is an easy walk with a rather tedious section following the catchwater. Sadly, graffiti covers all over the famous rock.
If it was not the story behind, I would not be interested in visiting the Amah Rock, for it has been completely spoiled by the graffiti.
