Statue of Jesus

On top of Nui Nho mountain stands the statue of Jesus overlooking the southern point of the peninsula and facing the East Sea. The statue is 30 m high and was built in the early 70’s. The statue is hollow. The inside is illuminated by light coming from 6 windows, 3 in the front, 3 in the back, that are shaped like the chinese character Tho (longevity). A spiral stair of 129 steps leads to the head. This is the largest sculpture in the South of Vietnam. Recent construction of a pathway has made the 30-minute hike up the mountain more pleasant and the panoramic view from various vista points along the way is magnificent
