HCM CITY – Tây Ninh Province is one of the best places in southern Việt Nam for a day trip pilgrimage from HCM City and neighboring provinces.
One of the most popular pilgrimage places in Tây Ninh is Bà Đen Mountain with the 300-year-old Bà Pagoda complex. Bà Đen Mountain is the highest mountain in the country's southeastern region.
About 986 metres above sea level, the mountain is famous for natural landscapes as well as sacred pagodas and temples.
The place is considered one of the most sacred in the south and attracts pilgrims from all over the country and around the world. The major deity on the mountain is Linh Sơn Thánh Mẫu, and millions come to seek her blessings every year.
To reach the pagoda, visitors can take a cable car for 10 minutes at the base of the mountain to see a panoramic view of the surrounding areas at the pagoda. – VNS
