Black Virgin Mountain (Vietnamese: Núi Bà ?en meaning "Black Lady Mountain", Khmer: Phnom Chol Baden) is a mountain in the Tay Ninh Province of Vietnam. To the Vietnamese the mountain is the center of a myth about Bà ?en, a local deity of Khmer origin. During the Vietnam War the area around the mountain was very active as the Ho Chi Minh Trail ended a few kilometers west across the Cambodian border. As such there were many battles and American and Vietnamese soldiers based in the region remember the prominent landmark. After the war the mountain turned from a battle ground to being famous for the its beautiful temples and theme park. HELLO! Yes many battles around this mountain, AFTER I returned I bought a Triumph Spitfire! Drove from Calif. to Colo. Ft. Carson and also to top of Pikes Peak over 14,000 ft.! I loved this car! Thanks for looking!!! Don OH I paid about $2400. for car!! And the mountain had a Khmer or Cambodian myth with monks and things! I think!
