Suoi Mo – famous destination in Tay Yen Tu

(BGO) – Vuc Mo (Mo Canyon) is the old name for the whole complex of Suoi Mo (Mo Spring) landscape and relic site located at the present Nghia Phuong commune, Luc Nam district, Bac Giang province. 

It used to be the most popular destination for numerous scholars to visit and compose their works, including Nhat Nam Trinh Nhu Tau who was a scholar/writer/reporter of Thuong village, Phu Lang Thuong town. He paid several visits and spent time studying the local folk culture then researching the ancients documents to record the precious documentaries.

The magnificent landscape

The precious documentaries collected in the region of Rum – Quynh (the old name of two villages in Nghia Phuong commune) helped Nhat Nam truthfully describe Vuc Mo in the book of Bac Giang’s monography published in 1937 in Hanoi.

Few pages of Vuc Mo research are the most valuable documentaries about the destination we have had for the first haft of the twentieth century downward. Scholar Nhat Nam noted these words nearly 80 years ago: “The Vuc Mo temple, except for Ha (Lower) temple in Kha Le commune, is located in Nghia Phuong commune, Cuong Son tong (old administrative unit), Luc Ngan district. 3 temples of Thuong (Upper), Trung (Middle) and Suoi Mo are called Thuong, Trung and Ha Vuc Mo…The Thuong Vuc Mo temple was built leaning against the flank of Huyen Dinh mountain, facing to a deep canyon and 10-meter waterfall running down namely Dau Voi (Elephant head) waterfall. 

The Trung and Ha temples were also built on the mountain flank with the spring passing by to lure any visitors….Vuc Mo temple worships Lady Lord of the Forestry Princess Que My Nuong (Duc Thuong ngan Thanh Mau)”.

In the Trung temple, there also remained the parallel sentences and poems presented by Tong doc Hoang Thuy Chi: “Toan thach bi tang linhdieucanh/Thao hoatrang tac sac khongthien (The water and mountain hire in fairyland/ Flowers are dedicated to the Buddhism sanctuary)”.

After discovering the value and hidden charms of Vuc Mo landscape and relic sites, the dedicated officers in the provincial Museum announced and made the dossier requesting the Government to recognize the destination at the end of the 1980s.

Apart from the old and present magnificent architectures, the researchers conducted the survey on the cultural space in the land of Nghia Phuong, especially the region of Dum – Quynh for months. And the locals show them several places which are the ruins, and ancient cultural spiritual projects scattering in both banks of Mo spring.

Shimmering the Chau Van singing

Vuc Mo forms a tourism area by three factors: Spirit, ecology, landscape and convenient transport. It becomes more attractive and lively with Chau Van singing (spiritual singing). Besides the beautiful landscape, Vuc Mo boasts a deep beauty of rich cultural space and traces reflecting the traditional cultural history.
