Some 3,000 hectares spanning Tay Ninh city’s Ninh Son ward, Ninh Thanh ward and Thanh Tan commune and 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. 

Relevant sides will evaluate the impacts of tourism development at the site and study linking Ba Den Mountain with other tourist attractions in the province, Ho Chi Minh City and other localities in the southeast region.

Works at the site must be based on local culture, history and practices. 
Ba Den Mountain is the highest mountain in Vietnam’s southeast region at 986 metres above sea level.

The site, with many pagodas and caves, is considered one of the most famous spiritual lands in the south, worshipping Linh Son Thanh Mau (Linh Son Holy Mother). For years, it has been frequented by tourists, most visiting Ba Temple Complex, old pagodas like Ha Pagoda, Thuong Pagoda and Hang Pagoda and caves on the mountain.
