Just south of Da Nang City in Vietnam is a collection of 5 marble and limestone hills called the Marble Mountains. Several Buddhist sanctuaries can be found within the mountains making it a popular tourist attraction. While only one of the mountains is open to the public, you’ll find the 156 stairs to the top plenty of treking for one day. There are a few different sanctuaries and pagodas located on the mountain with spectacular statues and reliefs carved from the marble of the area. This one in particular is the Huyen Khong Buddhist Grotto which holds a large seated Buddha statue in a cave inside the mountain.
