Ta Cu Mountain Tourist Area

Published:  19:01 Wednesday - December 26, 2012 Ta Cu Mountain Tourist Area, is located in Thuan Nam Town, Ham Thuan Nam District, 30km from Phan Thiet City, Binh Thuan Province, near Highway 1A. The area, covering 250,000m2, is a diverse ecological complex of forests, mountains and sea that is an ideal destination for visitors.

Recently, a suspended cable system, 1,600m long and 500m high, was set up in Ta Cu Mountain Tourist Area that consists of 35 cable cars and two stations with a transport capacity of 1,000 tourists/hour. This system allows tourists to have a panoramic view of the fairyland scenery of Thuan Nam Town with lush orchards of dragon plants grown in straight lines and ancient trees covered with creepers. At a higher altitude, visitors can see the Ham Thuan An sea and famous Ke Ga Lighthouse near a beautiful stone base by sea waves.

Alighting at the suspended cable station and following a path hundreds of metres long, visitors are surprised by the complex of Linh Son Truong Tho Pagoda, towers, Buddhist statues and caves amidst ancient green trees. The pagoda was built between 1870 and 1880 with more than one hundred stone steps from its three-door gate to the sanctum. The pagoda’s roof with the Buddhist architectural style of the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945) stands out in the blue sky, showing the solemnity of the pagoda. 

Following the stone steps, tourists see three Buddhist statues, representing the past, the present and the future. They are Amitabha Buddha, the Goddess of Mercy and Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva which stand imposingly in the greenness of the forest. On the way to discover the beauty of the tourist area, visitors also see a statue of Nirvana, one of the most unique and biggest statues in Southeast Asia. The statue, 49m in length and 11m in height, was made from reinforced concrete and covered with white lime on a stone base, leaning on the mountain. It was built in 1962 and completed after nearly four years.
