A total of 11,000 guests came to the position in the initial six months of this year, a pointy increase compared to the figure of 2011, at 16,000. The main attraction is that the gigantic stone citadel was built six centuries ago, which is the only built by stone in Vietnam tourism. It's still intact via ups and downs in history.

Blocks of stone used to create the walls of the citadel had an average dimension of 2.2m x 1.5m x 1.2m and weighed an average 20-25 tonnes. Some of them were 4.2m x 1.7m x 1.5m and 5.1m x 1m x 1.2m with the largest weighing up to 26.7 tonnes. The larger blocks were laid below the smaller ones.

The rock web site in An Ton Mountain, Vinh Yen commune, Vinh Loc district, that equipped stone for the building of the citadel, and the Nam Giao worship platform, that were built of solely tiny blocks measuring 40cm-50cm x 30cm or 40cm x 20cm-30cm, additionally draw several tourists.
