Ba Den (Black Lady) Mountain is an iconic tourist attraction in the southern province of Tay Ninh. The complex, which is also a famous spiritual site as it contains the Linh Son Tien Thach pagoda, attracts millions of visitors every year.
Standing at 986 metres above sea level, Ba Den mountain has been dubbed the roof of southern Vietnam.
Seen from a distance, Ba Den mountain sometimes stands out in the blue sky and is sometimes hidden under clouds and fog.
