Ta Cu Mountain and the Reclining Buddha


"Het haventje van Mui Né met zijn vele gekleurde vissersboten is erg leuk. Het is prachtig weer, zonnig en rond de 28 graden. Omdat we niet goed gesmeerd hebben, verbranden we een beetje".


the Reclining Buddha

          Ta Cu Mountain - Located along National Highway 1A near the village of Thuan Nam, about 28 km south of Phan Thiet. You have from the mountain wonderful views of the province of Binh Thuan. The mountain is 563 meters high and there are two temples: Linh Son Truong Tho (upper temple) and Long Doan (lower temple) on a high rock with terraces and towers. There are standing statues of gods who, like the reclining Buddha, are made of concrete in lime and white. The reclining Buddha has a length of 59 meters and is 18 meters high. It is the largest reclining Buddha in Vietnam.

The trip down here is simple, but not interesting. Phan Thiet you travel 28 kilometers to the south. You can see the mountain from afar. Turn left when you see a giant dragon fruit statue. In this region grows much dragon fruit and you see a lot of creeping cacti along the way.

You can choose on arrival what you do: by cable car or walk up and then you walk through the jungle. The cable car takes about 15-20 minutes, but a walk takes less than 2 hours to the top.
Halfway they stopped the construction of a paved walkway. it was no longer necessary, because after all, they built a cable car. But ... the strong among us put firmly on. The path is a little rocky, but eventually you come up. The first thing you do above, enjoy the magnificent view over the plain.

 


The Cable Car

If you come above, there is a path to the Reclining Buddha. Everything looks new and there are on weekdays hardly visitors. It is a very peaceful place, with lots of birds and a beautiful, lush forest.
On the path to the Reclining Buddha, you will pass some white images, which are made of concrete. The white Reclining Buddha (Thich Ca Nhập Not Ban) (Buddha entering Nirvana) is impressively large! At 59 meters long and 18 meters high, is the largest Buddha in Vietnam! And bright white. Just made of concrete and painted white, but nonetheless impressive.
