The sights of Dalat cable car (Cap Treo) and the monastery Dienbien (Thien Vien Truc Lam Monastery)
Although the beginning of the ropeway is located almost within the city of Dalat (near the bus station), it will take you to the monastery Dienbien the mountain Phung Hoang. As you climb the mountain, you can see wonderful landscapes from height of bird's flight. It is a pity that the funicular will take you too fast. But never mind, upstairs also offers a wonderful view. And the monastery on the mountain – a Buddhist village consisting of several separate buildings (pagodas, pavilions with a huge bell and drum, the home of monks, etc.). Itself the vast territory of the Monastery is very colourful and picturesque, with manicured lawns and shrubs shaped like animals, gazebos. The outer walls of the pagodas decorated with Golden statues from sandal wood, and inside the decor is more than ascetic. The monastery has a recent history, and was built only in 1994, after Descending from the Monastery on the road a little lower, is another temple built, but not everywhere you can go on their grounds, than stated in the inscription on the gate. There is also a small artificial pond.
