Marble Mountains Travel Guide

Marble Mountains

Five beautiful limestone peaks, known as the Marble Mountains, rise above the beach north of Hoi An and south of Danang. Over the centuries the dong (caves) in the Thuy Son Peak have been turned into temples and shrines. The first to use them were the Cham, who converted them into Hindu shrines. The Buddhists have since taken over, adorned, sanctified, and inhabited them.
