The best part is the secret entrance at the top pagoda. It take you into a cave and then out again for an amazing view.

We visited this beautiful little pagoda as part of a day-tour around Ninh Binh. For such a famous spot it was surprisingly quiet, so we took a peaceful walk around the temple grounds and took the stairs up through the cave. Really pretty place to take photos at, do not miss.

Free entry. Just don't park a bike or moped with the people by the entrance. No need.

Generally poor signposts so just keep going up and through the caves.

Nice pagoda. 1-2 hours to see it all. Once you leave the pagoda itself go to the right and up over the hill. Great view.

This place is not spectacular in any manner. The views are only very mediocre compared to many many other places around Tam COC. The temple is very mediocre, so I am confused as to why this is rated so high. It's a easy few kilometer ride from town so if this was the first place you were to see in your vacation here in Ninh Binh then maybe you would rank it high but if it's one of the last places, you rank it as a 2.

It’s beautifully scattered along the mountains and the view are spectacular. The paths are easy and filled with fresh air.
