Snake caves

Be prepared for a lot of steps, but it’s worth it.
Rising rapidly up the ‘mountain’ an array of interesting statues and rooms, then delve into the labyrinth of caves - mostly man made I think.
And then the views are great, it’s so good to be elevated above the endless plains of the Mekong Delta, and to see the rice fields (many being burnt, so the view was a little hazy) stretching to the mountains and the Cambodian border.
I left without leaving a donation and will make a point of returning to do so, as otherwise there is no charge.

The pagoda is located on top of a mountain, partly built out and partly in caves in the rock. Nice view towards Cambodia. The surrounding garden is very beautiful and impressive. Definitely worth climbing up.

Amazing view and architecture

Climb up and over 100 steps to the main hall, then an amazing view is your front eyes. It was a great pleasure to come and learn about the monk lessons regarding Buddhism. So Peaceful!

great view and iconic pagoda
Jul 2018 • Couples
Lovely stop in on the way from Chau Doc to Ha Tien, lots of steps to get up to the main entrance and great views from out the front and also inside the pagoda itself. We didn't spend too long here but was something a bit different to other pagodas and temples that we saw along our journey.
we stopped in here with our local driver organised through Miss San tours. It was a bit of a hot day and a long walk to get to the entrance so needed the drink at the bottom when we returned to the car.
lovely memories of the pagoda and friendly monk we met there too.

Lovely place! It’s on the mountain you can enjoy the view overlooking small city of Châu Doc. We went there at sunset so the view was even better. Pagoda is beautiful. Worth to climb up to the top.

Nice views and interesting pagoda
Feb 2018 • Friends
We visited with vietnamese friends and had a meal first at a local eatery on the road where you enter the temple. There are quite a few steps to enter the various levels of the pagoda so it is difficult if you dont handle steps very well and this is the only access. The pagoda has some nice features and gardens. The views from the pagoda of the surrounding rice paddies and mountains are nice and I suggest going at sunset.

Nice view, quiet place, should visit in Chau Doc

An Giang is very famous for Ba Chua Xu pagoda. However, Phuoc Kien pagoda (called as Hang pagoda) is a place here worth a visit too. It takes you ~5 mins to drive from Ba Chua Xu. The pagoda locates on Sam mountain as well, but in another site; so all the buildings are built leaning on the mountain with stair case to pass. There is a nice lotus lake on the left with Phat Di Lac statue, step in and you can have a great view over nearby area with rice paddles. Reaching to the top is the main temple, where people can do praying for health, wealthiness, happiness. Remember to take out the footwear to enter the main temple. Going through it, we can find the big bell and other view. During summer when the trees planted on the mountain are in blossom; the pagoda is like a landscape in old kungfu film in my imagination. They are building some more temples in higher place, so we can expect more to visit soon.

A gem on Sam Mountain
Jan 2017 • Solo
I found this place randomly while looking for the way to get to the summit of Sam Mountain. It was really worth the visit! There is no entrance fee. I was there around 5:00 PM, I was seriously the only tourist around. The views from the surrounding areas are breathtaking, especially at sunset. There is a great cave complex with statues of Buddhas and other characters, which was pleasant to explore. This place is not advertised, so I really recommend you to visit it if you want to avoid the crowds. Finally I didn't get to the summit of Sam Mountain, I was satisfied with this discovery :)

A very different pagoda
Jan 2017 • Couples
This pagoda is also called Cave Pagoda as it is built on Nui Sam (Sam Mountain) going up the hill. It is truly different and well worth a visit.

Pagoda with a difference
Nov 2016 • Family
We stopped here on our way back to Chau Doc from Tra Su Forest and were pleasantly surprised. Lots of steps on the way up the mountain but then it plateaued into a beautiful temple with lots of underground tunnels, nooks and crannies to explore. Luckily for us sunset was during our visit and we had the most amazing views from the top of the surrounding countryside with a glorious sunset.
