NDO/VNA – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has approved a master plan to develop Ba Den (Black Lady) Mountain national tourism site in the southern province of Tay Ninh into a special spiritual and cultural site by 2035.

Some 3,000 hectares spanning Tay Ninh city’s Ninh Son ward, Ninh Thanh ward and Thanh Tan commune, as well as part of Phan commune in Duong Minh Chau district, will be zoned off for the site.

Under the plan, economic, population, land use and infrastructure factors will be prioritised.

Ba Den Mountain is the highest mountain in Vietnam’s southeast region standing at 986 metres above sea level.

The site, with many Buddhist temples and caves, is considered as one of the most famous spiritual sites in the south, worshipping Linh Son Thanh Mau (Linh Son Holy Mother).

For years, it has been frequented by tourists, who mostly visit Ba Temple Complex, old Buddhist temples and caves located in the mountain.
