Tang Chon Grotto

The grotto lies behind Linh Ung Pagoda on Thuy (Water) Mountain. It was discovered under the reign of Le Canh Hung (1740-1786).

The main grotto is like a small valley with a length of 10m and a width of 7m. It communicates with the sky through “Thien Long window”. An altar of Thai Thuong Lao Quan stands in the middle of the grotto, an altar dedicated to Eight Varjas on the left and one dedicated to the god of Chiem Thanh on the right. Light through “Thien Long window” makes the grotto become more beautiful.

Next to the main grotto are five smaller ones, including Tam Thanh, Gio, Chiem Thanh, Ban Co and Ray. Tam Thanh Grotto worships three gods, Thuong Thanh, Trung Thanh and Ha Thanh. Beside Tam Thanh is Gio (Wind) Cave; it is windy all the year around. Chiem Thanh Grotto has a shape of semi-circular, dedicated to the gods of Cham people. Ray Cave, five meters from the main grotto, has five-color stalactites. Ban Co (Chess board) Grotto was legendarily a place where fairies came to play chess on the stone set of table.

 

Daylight reaches the chamber of the grotto, enhancing its beauty.
