You’ll have to climb 239 laterite steps to reach the temple, but the panoramic view of the surrounding countryside, is worth the effort! Marvel at the 75 Arhat statues which are considered the best form of plastic art and sculpture of Vietnam. The statues describe different legends of Buddha and his disciples.
