AM PHU CAVE – A JOURNEY INTO THE WORLD
Located on the southern side of Thuy Son Mountain, which belongs to Marble Mountain, Am Phu Cave is a mystical destination for visitors seeking adventure or stepping into the world of wonder and the unknown.
What makes Am Phu Cave a must-see place?
Am Phu Cave represents “hell” in the Buddhist religion, where sinners come to confess their wrongdoings and face punishment. Exploring this cave feels like entering an underground world full of mystery and supernatural elements, such as scary statues and altars.
To reach the cave, you have to cross the Mau Duong Bridge. According to local belief, this bridge spans the Nai Ha River—an underground river that serves as a passage for departed souls. As you step onto the bridge, a dimly lit path awaits, offering a slight chill and a serene silence where even the smallest sound can be heard.
Am Phu Cave presents two distinct paths. One ascends towards the heavenly realms, while the other descends into the depths of hell. The heavenly path is bathed in colorful light. You will have the perfect panoramic view of the sky and sea when reaching the top. In contrast, the journey into the underground world is cloaked in darkness, revealing numerous life lessons and religious beliefs.
The deeper you go, the more you will encounter the statue of the Earth Store Bodhisattva in the center, followed by various officials from nine levels of hell. Next, you will pass through 12 gates, each representing a different scene of the underworld, highlighting the horrifying punishments for different sins tailored to specific sins. These vivid portrayals convey profound educational messages, guiding individuals towards goodness, as deviating from the path would result in severe consequences.
