The Dung Quyet Mountain - is located on the outskirts of Vinh. About 5 kilometers from the center of the city, near the Ben Thuy Bridge.
At the weekend many residents go hiking on the mountain. They have to climb over 400 steps to the top. Dung Quyet Mountain is central to the lives of the inhabitants of Vinh. It is used as a haven from the bustling city and is also regarded as home to four supernatural creatures: the dragon, unicorn, turtle and phoenix.
At the top of the mountain you will discover majestic and old, large and spacious temple. Quang Trung King’s Temple is on the top of Dung Quyet Mountain, 97 meters above sea level. This is strikingly amid the endless line pines and the vast Lam river below you, meanders in the fog.
From the top you have a fantastic view of Vinh City. It's an idyllic setting. The town stretches from the mountains to the plains. You see the green pine trees, farmland, rivers and high rise buildings on the banks. You'll see the traffic on the roads, the cafes, restaurants, historic temples, and the entertainment district.
You can also mount on a motorcycle or car. Around the top of the mountain itself are small cafes, restaurants, hiking trails and hotels. This makes the mountain in such a popular place for residents.
The temple was built in royal architecture including a forecourt, which is the core of the temple, central palace and harem made from lim wood. The pillars are carved with patterns from the Nguyen Dynasty and the roof is made with two lays of bamboo flat-tile, while walls and floors are made of brick and stone.
The temple was built in 2003 featuring character and spiritual culture of Nguyen Dynasty.
