region of Yen Tu has been a ventre of Buddhism for many
centuries and is the starting point of the Buddhist sect
of Truc Lam.
In the wide ensemble of vestiges in Yen Tu, there are 11
pagodas and close to 100 shrines and towers.
Tu festivities begin on the ninth day of the 1st lunar
month and last until the end of the 3rd month. One form of
entertainment is to climb the peak to where the Dong
pagoda was built. On the way you'll see pagodas, a tower,
a tream and a farest.
At the top, after having burned
joss-sticks, you will seem to be lost in nature somewhere
between the sky and the earth. When clear you can perceive
almost all of the north-east area from here.
There is a popular saying about Yen Tu : "Even after 100
years of virtuous religious life, if you don't come to Yen
Tu you can not be called a true religious persons".
