Dung Quyet Mountain

and the King Quang Trung Temple

"We rode our bikes there and ended up having hike them up the mountain for a little ways. Very good glute workout. We parked the bikes at the base of the steps leading up to the temple, which set us back a 10 whole cents apiece. Still can’t get over how inexpensive it is to live here. People don’t even bother with dimes in the U.S. and here it pays for unlimited parking on a mountain near an ancient temple. This spot provided some amazing views of the city of Vinh, the countryside, and even the ocean."


View at Vinh

          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.
The temple also has a Tay Son Museum, a museum of Nghe An ethical work, ethnic culinary writings, birdcage, folk games and traditional trades.

Local authorities and residents host an annual ceremony at the temple in December to honor and commemorate the heroes in the victory against Quing invaders.

If you want to go to the temple, you have to climb up the mountain, but now it has roads lead straight to the top, and there is parking for visitors with cars and motorcycles. Taking this road to the temple make visitors feel like the Hai Van Pass. It is also tortuous and beautiful view. The road leads straight to the temple have made the life of surrounding people better because of tourism services as well as convenient traffic.
