In tourists and local residents’ eyes, Dinh Cau Temple (Dinh Cau Rock, Dinh Cau Shrine) is not only an ideal destination but also the tourism symbol of the Jade island – Phu Quoc.

On the the centre beach of Phu Quoc, Dinh Cau Temple is an outstanding place because of its towering lighthouse.

Dinh Cau Temple lies on the precarious rocks beside the Duong Dong river mouth that pours into the West sea.

To reach Dinh Cau Temple, tourists have to trek through natural rock slits. People call them the “heaven trail”.

You will have to climb up 29 crooked stairs.

Along that winding trail is a line of century-old trees clang with a number of parasitic plants.

Dinh Cau Temple is actually an ancient temple built to worship the gods who protect the fishermen.

It is the reason why there is a sea boat in front of the temple.

The lighthouse is another impressive point near Dinh Cau Temple.

It is interesting to gaze at these little rocks and let your imagination go wild. For instance, many people find it possible to see a rock-made crocodile here.

Take a look from the right side and this inanimate rock turns into a furious wild boar.

Don’t forget to take a photo of these exotic rocks to share your memories with friends.

Dinh Cau Temple is the only place that you can see the sun diving into the limitless ocean.

When the dusk falls, Dinh Cau Temple beach is sparkling in lights. Tourists flock to this site to join the fun. Definitely, with its fascinating beauty, Dinh Cau Temple is recognized as tourism relic of Kien Giang province.
