The local Buddhists of Nha Trang occupied this place for prayers and worshipping, and there are many incense lighted giving the place an interesting aroma. The Po Ngar Kalan is a very glorified structure with amazing architectures filled with stunning colors. It is a 20-25 minute walk from the main beach strip, however be prepared to wander through the 'real' Nha Trang, quite a drastic change from the showy built up beach side resort.

Thanh Dien Khanh Fortress

The Dien Khanh Citadel is situated on Dien Khanh Townlet, Dien Khanh District, Khanh Hoa Province. The Citadel was built by the French officer Olivier de Puymanel for Nguyễn Ánh in 1793 with an area of 36,000 square meters according to the Vauban military architecture which was popular in Western Europe in 17th - 18th centuries.
The citadel's wall was in an inequilateral hexagon of 3.5m height. The outer face was vertically constructed while the inner was a little bit sloping by two terraces forming a favorable pavement. Inside the corners, there were large fields which were convenient for military resident. On the top of corners there stood fortresses of 2m high with canons above. On the roof of the citadel, there planted closet bamboo and other barricade trees. Surrounding the citadel were moats of 4 to 5 meters deep, 10 meters wide, flooded by water.
At first the citadel had 6 gates but nowadays it remains only 4 ones which are East Gate, West Gate, Front Gate (to the South), Back Gate (to the North). There had been here royal palace, private residents of feudal mandarins, warehouses and jails...

Ba Ho

Fairy Spring (“Suoi Tien”) waterfalls

To reach Suoi Tien from Nha Trang, take the turn off for Suoi Dau off Highway 1. For those who would like to get a closer look at local life, taking a stroll through Dien Khanh citadel to Dien Hoa Town would be a good option.

Suoi Tien is worth the visit just to see the giant waterfalls formed by a stone shield cut by the river weaving its way down Mount Hon Ba to the village of Dien Khanh. The waterfall isn't as big as the famous Ban Gioc in Cao Bang Province, but its charm is amplified by the tranquil and lush environment.

Visitors will find shady stone paths up to the water falls on the banks of the river. Unlike the waterfalls in the north that flow and froth only in summer, Suoi Tien offers the same landscape year round. Endless flows of water have created small lakes that serve as natural swimming pools that visitors may wish to plunge into after a day of trekking. Layers of colourful stones of all shapes and sizes, reflected from the transparent river, form vivid pictures of this mountain city.

Suoi Tien literally means stream of fairies in Vietnamese. Legend has it that a giant from Binh Dinh Province visited Suoi Tien thousands of years ago. Enchanted by its charm, the giant accidentally slid into the stream. One of his feet landed on a boulder on the bank of the river, flattening it to create a smooth surface in the middle of the stream. The flat stone served as a place for fairies from heaven to play after coming down to earth for a swim.

The flat stone is now an ideal resting point for visitors who want to conquer the upstream flow of the river.

Chong rocks ("Hon chong")

Chong has two meanings in the Vietnamese language. The first is to stack. The second is husband. Hon Chong is located on a stretch of rocky mass of land famous for the thousands of smooth rocks stacking on one another. There are two clusters of such rocks in the area called Hon Chong. The first is further out in the ocean and the second is located near an islet called Sat Thon. The cluster in the ocean is most impressive since there are large boulders stacking on one another seemingly out-of-balance, yet remaining stable. 

There is a boulder as large as a small hill supporting another boulder as large as a small house at its peak. On the side facing the shore, there is an imprint of a large hand with five fingers clearly outlined. The locals call this rock Hon Chong or the Husband.
