Over 100m in hight Thien An Mountain with four sides of equilateral trapezium shape mirrors itself in the poetic river of Tra Khuc in such a manner as a heavenly seal stamps on the river (Thien An niem ha).

 

Lying on the left bank of Tra Khuc river, east of the Quang Ngai's city, Thien An Mountain is one of the famous beauty spots which was ranked among Vietnam famed mountains since the reign of Nguyen Dynasty (1850).
In its majesty, over 100 m high Thien An Mountain with 4 sides of equilateral trapezium shape mirrors itself in the poetic river of Tra Khuc in such a manner as a heavenly seal stamps on the river (Thien An niem ha). Topping the southwest of Thien An Mountain is the tomb of Huynh Thuc Khang (1876-1947), a famous patriotic scholar and journalist, acting president of Democratic Republic of Vietnam.
There stands in the top of the mountain an ancient pagoda (Thien An Pagoda) under the shades of secular trees, built in the reign of Le Dynasty, now remaining as an ancient relic after undergoing numerous repairs. In the pagoda’s yard is an ensemble of the 7 monks’ tombs chronologically built over centuries, the 20m deep Buddha Well, the Great Bell casted in 1845 (during the reign of Thieu Tri King) by Mr. Tuong Village (Mo Duc), which emits vibrating sound possesses a legend of a magic bell.
