HCM CITY — The Tay Ninh Province People’s Committee on Feb 19 opened the Ba Den (Black Lady) Mountain Spring Festival.

The annual event at the Ba Den Mountain Historical, Cultural and Tourism Relic Site features festivities, cultural and sports activities like unicorn dancing, art fireworks, film screening, traditional games and sports contests.

The Tay Ninh Tourism and Trade Joint Stock Company and the Tay Ninh Cable Car Tour Company have given the relic a facelift and installed a new sliding system to attract pilgrims and others during Tet (Lunar New Year).

The People’s Committee ordered related agencies to ensure security and environmental and food safety during the festival, which will go on until March 3.

Ba Den Mountain, which is famous for its majestic landscapes and magnificent caves and pagodas, is part of the Nui Ba Relic Complex in the southern province of Tay Ninh.

The complex spreads over an area of 24 square kilometres and comprises three mountains - Nui Heo (Pig Mountain), Nui Phung (Phoenix Mountain), and Nui Ba Den (Black Lady Mountain).

Ba Den is the highest mountain in the south-east, rising to a height of 986 metres.

It received nearly 400,000 pilgrims and tourists on the first four days of the Lunar New Year, according to the province People’s Committee. —VNS
