Shivering as you discover the bone basin of Cac Co cave at Thay pagoda
Cac Co cave belongs to the Thay pagoda, in Quoc Oai district of Hanoi is one of the scariest and most popular tourist destinations for the public. We know that the bottom of the cave contains up to 3,600 human skeletons.
To get there, you have to cross over 200 slippery and rugged stone steps. In addition, you need to equip a flashlight to light the road because of the humid air, lack of light, so it is difficult to see with the naked eye. Going through the altar, built by the cave management center, a shiver will befall your back. Under the flashlight there are lots of skulls, bones, forearms and countless bone fragments, yellowing pieces, or making them black mixed with real money, silver hell, garbage,…
This place is called by tour guides “Hell cave”. Think again and again, this name is right!
When you have the opportunity to explore Cac Co cave, you can broaden your knowledge. According to an anecdote, it would be the bone mass of 3,600 insurgents of Lu Gia, who died tragically in the heart of this mountain during the fight against the Han. Over 2,000 years ago, General Lu Gia’s insurgent settled in this mountain cave in an attempt to defend the enemy. Unable to continue, the enemies carried large rocks to cover the entrance of the cave, killing thousands of our troops in the mountains. Sai Son Mountain, transformed into a huge tomb, buried several thousand people.
Over 2000 years later, in 1933, local people walked through the door of the cave, built a large tank, and then proceeded to collect bones from the cave. Since then, the history of the “pool of hatred of thousands of bones” in Cac Co cave at Thay Pagoda has been passed down from generation to generation.
Hell on Earth – Con Dao Prison
Con Dao welcomes over 50,000 visitors each year to come and relax. Besides the blue beaches, the white sand and the sun,… Con Dao prison is also a scary place that many tourists want to visit when coming to Con Dao. It is known to be the largest and oldest prison in Vietnam, it recreates many scenes of war torture.
For over 100 years, around 20,000 Vietnamese of many generations have been imprisoned and sacrificed here. This “hell on earth” makes the whole world shocked by barbaric torture.
Stop in each cell, visitors will panic in surprise. The Vietnamese revolutionaries were locked up and tortured until exhaustion. One of the most cruel tortures is to put prisoners in a tiger cage. The worst is the cow manure pit. Because prisoners do not submit, they were drowned in this dead pit. The solarium is also a “nightmare” for the revolutionary soldiers tormented here. They were forced to bask in the sun and rain all the time, hungry and brutally beaten.
There were still many horrible and inhuman punishments that the settlers had dealt to the Vietnamese. Visit Vietnam once – especially Con Dao Prison and you can relive days of bombs.
History has passed, and today the Vietnamese class reminds everyone of Con Dao. We believe that even with time, these pains still make us suffer each time to mention.
Hoa Lo – Macabre prison with medieval guillotine
At the top of the list of the 5 most macabre destinations in Asia, it is the Hoa Lo prison is located on the street of Hoa Lo, in the Hoan Kiem district, in Hanoi, the French colonist built Hoa Lo prison.
Hoa Lo, which covers an area of more than 10,000 square meters, was reportedly one of the largest and most solid prisons in Indochina at the time. The French colonialists understood the courage of the Vietnamese people and therefore built this place to hide and execute many patriotic soldiers, such as the patriot Nguyen Thai Hoc.
The design of the prison allowed Hoa Lo to detain around 500 prisoners with inhuman conditions of torture. They suffered violent slaps when they first crossed the heavy iron door, were then chained, brutally beaten in isolation cells or guillotine cells.
It makes sense when Hoa Lo sits the top of Asia’s horror places, Hoa Lo’s most terrible thing is the medieval guillotine, which has sentenced many Vietnamese prisoners.
In the heart of the bustling capital of Hanoi, somewhere in Hoa Lo, one can still find the image of an imprisoned prisoner and a cry of resentment. Once you have chosen Vietnam – travel to Hanoi and visit it here, you will relive the days of catastrophic war.
