Jesus Mountain is a famous scenic spot in Ho Chi Minh City. There is a huge statue of Jesus on the hill, which can be climbed slowly from the bottom of the hill. There are steps inside the statue of Jesus that can climb to the top and come out from the shoulder of Jesus.
Mount Jesus is located in the southeast of Ho Chi Minh City. It is named after the largest statue of Jesus in the world. The stone statue of Jesus stretches his hands and faces the South China Sea. Climb up the stone ladder to reach the foot of the statue of Jesus, and you can visit inside. Standing on the shoulder of the statue, overlooking the beautiful scenery of Vung Tau City, it is picturesque and sweeping.
The Jesus statue in Vung Tau, Vietnam, is very similar to the Christ statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. They are both built on the top of a hill next to the city, but Vung Tau is not as prosperous as Rio, and Mount Jesus in Vung Tau is not as busy as Monte Cristo in Rio. So high, Jesus Mountain in Vung Tau is said to be built by the American troops stationed in Vietnam. It takes about half an hour to climb up slowly from the foot of the mountain, and it doesn’t feel particularly tired. There are very few tourists. Jesus can be climbed up by the internal stairs. Sticking your head out from the shoulder of the stone statue to take pictures, the scenery is spectacular with the city on one side and the coast on the other.
Vietnamese citizens were deeply influenced by the colonial rule of the past, and Catholicism played an important role in Vietnam. The statue of Jesus standing on Yingshan Ridge in Vung Tau, Vietnam, is the only large-scale statue of Jesus in the world like Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
One of the main tourist attraction in Vung Tao. Climbing 1000 steps to reach Jesus Christ’s Statue is very exciting. Felt very happy when I reach to the top and the air is refreshing.
Watch the sea in the morning, climb up the mountain, beautiful and fresh!
