What to explore at Su Muon Pagoda?

The first impression on this pagoda is its peace, magnificence, and solemnity. The pagoda is localted halfway up a hill in the center of a verdant forest with a splendid scenery. Behind the pagoda are mountains with sky high ancient trees. The sanctum is buolt on 3 meter thick stone flone, and the statue of Buddha is worshiped inside. To get to the sanctum, visitors must climb up over 60 stone steps. On the pagoda ground is a big rock which by human imagination, its colors and design, turns into a kowtowing tiger.

Looking down to the mountain slope from the balcony of the pagoda, visitors can recognize an amazing panorama right under their their foot. While enjoying mountain winds murmuring through trees, visitors' souls seem to be so purified and fly up to the nirvana.

This Pagoda is about 4km south of the town of Duong Dong. It is about another 1km up a good road that taxis take tourists to the top. The temple is a colourful one with the main temple and altar then another happy Budda outside. With not many attractions on the Island this adds another to visit. I would recommend to visit this attraction.
