Ba Den Mountain
Location: Ba Den Mountain is located 11km
Northeast of Tay Ninh Town and 106km from Ho Chi Minh City.
Characteristics: It is a famous complex of cultural, historical and beautiful sites covering an area of more than 24km2.
The complex includes three mountains: Heo, Phung and Ba Den, of which the 986m-high Ba Den is the highest peak in the south.
Ba Den Mountain is also called Black Lady Mountain. According to legends, beautiful Ly Thi Thien Huong, Black Lady, was forced to marry the son of a rich mandarin while she fell in love with a poor man who was fighting the aggressors. Rather than marrying a man she did not love, she threw herself from the mountain. Several shrines and pagodas were built in the mountain as well as in the caves. Ba and Hang Pagodas attract many pilgrims during the New Lunar Year and Vu Lan Festivals.
There are three ways to reach Ba Temple. If you go on foot, it takes you over one hour to arrive at the destination. Cable cars take you 20 minutes to cover a distance of 1200m. The sliding system includes two lines going upward and downward, 1190m and 1700m in length respectively. It is impressive to take the downward line as it will take you through lots of hair-raising bends and corners. Ba Den Mountain was where the headquarters of the liberation force of South Vietnam were located. During war time, many tough battles were fought in that area.
