Con Son Area

The Con Son area is located in the village of Cong Hoat, between the two mountain ranges of Phuong Hoang and Ky Lan, about 70 km from Hanoi.It consists of mountains, a pagoda, tower, pine forest, stream and well-known vestiges relating to national history. During the Tran Dynasty, the Con Son Pagoda was one of three centres of the Buddhist Truc Lam Trinity. At present, there are cultural remains of the Tran Dynasty and other historical periods, as follows:

Con Son Pagoda

The pagoda, also known as Tu Phuc or Hun, is situated at the foot of Con Son Mountain. During the Le Dynasty, the pagoda was restored and magnificently expanded. Today, it is a small pagoda that remains hidden underneath the shade of ancient green trees. It was built in the shape of the cong character, including a hall, incense house and upper chamber. The upper chamber is a worshipping place for Buddhists, with 3-m high statues from the Le Dynasty. Behind is a worshipping house for ancestors with statues of the three Phuc Lam saints (Tran Nha Tong, Phap Loa and Huyen Quang).

There is also a 600-year-old frangipani tree and four stele houses on the pagoda’s grounds.

Gieng Ngoc (Pearl Well)

Gieng Ngoc is located on the slopes of Ky Lan Mountain. On its right, the road leads to Ban Co Tien (Fairy Chess Stone) and Dang Minh Tower. It was said about the well that Buddhist monk Huyeng Quang was warned in a dream that the divine would give him a precious source of water. The water is clear, blue and fresh annually, and drinking it will make you feel pleasant and comfortable. The well is used by the monks here for the pagoda’s ceremonial water.

Ban Co Tien (Fairy Chess Stone)

From Con Son Pagoda you can climb approximately 600 rocky steps before finally arriving at the peak of the mountain (200 m). There is a park here with the large Ban Co Tien (Fairy Chess Stone). There is also a monument in vong lau dinh (watchtower) design, with two floors and eight roofs. The view from here is incredible. More about Vietnam

VIETNAM GENERAL INFORMATION

Vietnam borders with China in the north, Laos and Kampuchea in the West, and the Pacific Ocean in the east. Its lies in the centre of South-East Asia. Vietnam's territory stretches from Lung Cu village (Ha Tuyen province) in the north to Rach Tau hamlet (Minh Hai province) in the south. It is a S-shaped pennisula, with thousands of off-shore islands and archipelagoes; the biggest of which are the Hoang SA (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) Archipelagoes. Vietnam's mainland covers 331,689 square kilometres .
According to archaeological discoveries made at Do Mountain, it is believed that life in Vietnam began as far back as 300,000 years ago. Officially, the history of Vietnam stretches back 4,000 years when it was founded by the Hung Kings. It was then named Van Lang.
When speaking upon the history of Vietnam, it is important to note the large role played by the French in Vietnam. It began in 1858, when the French took over Danang in southern Vietnam. Over time, more and more territory was won over by the French. It wasn't until 1954, when the French surrendered to to the Viet Minh, ending the French Indochina War, that the French colonial control in Vietnam ended.

The immediate image in the minds of most people at the mention of Vietnam is that of the war fought against the United States some twenty years ago. Most people think of the country only in terms of the American conflict in Indochina. The war ended nearly twenty years ago, and today, despite lingering signs of past American involvement, the situation in Vietnam is markedly different. People have finally begun to look at the country from another perspective, now that travelers and tourists from the West are being welcomed into what was once a forbidden country. It may take a bit more effort and tenacity to plan an excursion into Vietnam than it would for another Southeast Asian country, but Vietnam has much to offer in terms of culture and sights.
