Tourist Attractions

Complex of Hung Temple (Den Hung)

Den Hung

Den Hung is located in Viet Tri City, approximately 95km from Ha Noi. This group of remains is tied to the legend about the 18 Hung Kings who built Van Lang State, with Phong Chau as the capital. Den Hung is a complex of majestic architectures that consist of Ha Temple, Thien Quang Pagoda, Trung Temple, Thuong Temple, Gieng Temple, and King Hung Tomb. 
Ha Temple which was built in the 15th century, dedicated to the Mother Au Co. According to the legend, in this place, Au Co gave birth to a pouch containing 100 eggs, which later hatched to become 100 sons. In front of the Ha Temple, there is an over 700-year old tree.
Trung Temple: According to legend, the Kings Hung built the house as a place to rest and hold political meetings. 
Thuong Temple where exclusively used for the kings Hung to have offerings to the Sun God, the earth God, the Rice God, etc. 
Tomb of the 6th Hung King: According to the legend, after the victory of Saint Giong against An aggressor, he ascended to Heaven, and the 6th Hung King took off his clothes, which he put on the branch of a kim giao tree and died on the spot. 
Besides, Gieng Temple is located at the foot of the mountain. In this temple there is a well called Ngoc (emerald); thus, the temple is called Gieng (well) Temple. The legend says that Princesses Tien Dung and Ngoc Hoa, daughters of the 18th Hung King, had the habit of looking at their reflection in the well to comb their hair. 
Still remaining on Nghia Linh Mountain are many artefacts and remains of the Van Lang civilization, such as stone axes, bronze spears, ceramic bowls and plates, stone columns, terra-cotta jars, bricks and tiles.

Hung Vuong Museum is located in the Complex of Hung Temple with a total area of over 15,000m2. 
The museum built in Dec. 2007 has three floors as a replica of a stilt house in the North with four red-tile roofs in style of Dong Son in combination with modern architecture. 
The ground floor includes two areas displaying items on different subjects and workshops for restoring objects. The first floor is reserved for showcasing items under the theme "Phu Tho people and land from the Kings Hung until the feudal dynasties". The second floor is dedicated to an exhibition entitled "Phu Tho people and land from the August Revolution until now". 
The museum also displays antiques of the Ly-Tran dynasties, 58 design models of Hung Vuong Tower (according to the plan, one may be chosen for building at the Complex of Hung Temple).

Lac Long Quan Temple

The temple is located in Sim Hill, Chu Hoa Commune, Viet Tri City, about 1km from Nghia Linh Mountain. Lac Long Quan Temple which was built on March 2007 and finished after 2 years, is divided into 3 areas, of which area A has 210m2 main temple. The frame of main temple is made of lim wood, roof is covered by shoe-shaped tile and floor is paved by Bat Trang brick. The statue of Lac Long Quan sitting on throne is placed on a pedestal with patterns manifesting the art of Dong Son culture. This bronze statue has height of 1.98m, weight of 1.5 tons. Area B includes managing and reception rooms. Area C includes landscape and supporting works.

Au Co Temple

The legend has it that Vietnamese people are descendants of Father Lac Long Quan and Mother Au Co. After a 3-year-and-10-month pregnancy, Mother Au Co gave birth to 100 eggs which hatched out 100 sons. The father and the mother took 50 sons each to the sea and the mountain respectively. At present, there remains a temple dedicated to the father in Binh Da Village (Ha Noi), exclusive of Lac Long Quan Temple in Viet Tri. The temple of Mother Au Co is located in Hien Luong Commune, Ha Hoa District, about 70km from Viet Tri City. 
The temple lies under the luxuriant century-old trees in the middle of rice fields by National Highway 32C. In the temple, the statue of Au Co is arranged in a solemn position, depicting an indulgent, beautiful, intelligent and kind-faced woman. There is also the statue of the second son, a talented general who is honoured as "superior deity". 
The temple festival annually held on the 7thday of the first lunar month.

Tham Mountain

Tham Mountain, also called Dau Rong Mountain, is located along the main road to the Thanh Ba industrial zone. On the peak of the mountain is a small pond called Ao Tien (Fairy Pond), which is always full of pure blue water. Surrounding Tham Mountain are hundreds of small hills, located one next to another.
A state plan was established regarding the growth of many industrial plants on these hills, such as tea, lacquer-plants and mu oil trees. Cement, alcohol, and fertilisers are already produced in the area. As well, there are ox and buffalo breeding farms. Tham Mountain is both a beautiful site and an economic centre in the region.

Ao Chau Pond

Ao Chau is a large pond of 3km2, spreading over three communes of Am Thuong, Am Ha, and Y Son in Ha Hoa District, 60km from Viet Tri City. Tourists can follow overland routes, or go by sea or by railway to reach this place. 
Ao Chau Pond has the shape of a giant buffalo's head whose two horns stretch out to the direction of the Thao and Chay rivers. The vast blue water of the pond remains calm all year round. On moonlit nights, the Ao Chau Pond resembles a magnificent picture with forests of palm trees, hills of tea, litchis and apricots mirroring themselves in the water. Heading for Ao Chau, tourists can enjoy the fresh air and taste local specialties like fruits, carps, trionychid turtles, crabs, snails, and so on.
Ao Chau Pond boasts 99 branches, which worm their way through nearly 100 hills and islands. Sailing along these branches, tourists seem to enter an engaging world of natural landscapes. The 99 branches are deemed to be 99 water "serpents" creeping down the pond to hold water.
