Ngu Hanh Son is a group of five mountains representing the five basic elements of metal, wood, water, fire and earth, including Kim Son (Metal Mountain), Thuy Son (Water Mountain), Moc Son (Wood Mountain), Hoa Son (Fire Mountain) and Tho Son (Earth Mountain). The site located in Hoa Hai Ward, Ngu Hanh Son is far about 7 kilometers from Da nang city to the Southeast.
The complex which is one of the most visited sites in Da Nang, attracting a large number of visitors, saw glorious victories during struggles for country’s protection.
The 400-year-old Non Nuoc stone sculpture village at the foot of Marble Mountains was also recognized as a national intangible heritage in 2014.
