Monkey temple in Long Hai

Recently, in their trips to Long Hai, many tourists fancy a drop at at a temple near Long Hai to have a fun time with those lovely monkeys living on Ky Van mountain just behind the temple.


According to a monk, the temple is named Thien Vien Chon Nguyen, but since the monkeys appeared, many people have preferred to call it “Monkey Temple”. Previously, the monkeys lived on the mountain, then some of them came to “visit” the temple, and on some occasions, they were fed by the monks. Later, more and more of them came to the temple to be fed. Today there are nearly 200 monkeys.

Visitors to the temple often bring with them bananas and other fruits to give the monkeys and have a really good time with them. Another factor that attracts visitors to the temple is the exceptional beauty of the surrounding environment, especially the masterpieces of rocks naturally shaped like a Buddha or a huge elephant prostrating itself and a 100 year old Bodhi tree with its roots penetrating the rocks and the caves. All of these have made the temple an interesting and unique place.
