There is here a big stele carved with the saying “Talent is the life-sustaining element of the nation”. One side of the temple is Long An and Buu Long mountains, immense fields with flying herons, and some roofs and trees appearing in the far distance. The other side is the imposing Dong Nai River mingling with small river branches, making a charming poetic picture. Conversely, Thanh Long Bach Ho is a high and dry place converging with feng-shui. The work, built on an area of 20, 000 square meters makes an architectural style bearing cultural, educational, and heroic fighting traditions of the nation.
