We came here after visiting the Ky Anh tunnels. The memorial is enormous - but not as enormous as her loss, and the stoicism and pain in her face as she cradles those she has lost is just unforgettable. Next door is a military cemetery, with a monument to the local soldiers who died - name after name after name. Beautiful and sobering, and very much worth a visit.

We couldnt believe how quiet it was here. Not a single tourist or local around. Was a hot day and you need a hat as there is a large square that really pulls the heat. The statue is massive, 18 meters high and 120 meters wide and cost 20 million USD it pays tribute to a woman who lost 11 of her sons and grandsons in wars and has 11 faces carved - just beautiful. She lived to be 106 years old - we were told. Our guide summed it up as - when you can cry no more tears". Well worth the stop. It seems off the tourist radar.

Worth a stop on the way back from My Lai. Dedicated to a mother, this impressive statue was build with donations.

A well maintained site highlighting the role of women especially during the Vietnamese/American war.

Some English information.

This place was on our list to visit on our recent visit travels.A massive stone monument dedicated to a lady of the area who lost 11 members of her own family.Her image displayed in the centre with the 11 men lost in war are etched into the massive stone wall.Put together large stone blocks on a massive scale.Beautiful steps and gardens surround.We were lucky enough to be there basically by our selves and our guide so ended up with some awesome pictures.Not a great deal of shade there and we had coolish day so would be hot in full sun.Take the time to sit and enjoy a cold drink of any sort right across the road and just soak in the enormous amount of work that it would of taken to create this very impressive monument.

Worth a visit on the way to or form Tam Thanh mural village. It's an enormous monument with an impressive collection of photos inside it too.

The statue is an amazing carving in a large tree-d area. There is an exhibit but it was closed for several days when I was there. Still worth seeing and walking around. Very nice setting.

Just outside Tam Ky is the Vietnamese Heroic Mother monument that commemorates Nguyen Thi Thu from the area who lost her husband and children in the war. The sculpture was hewn by sculptor Dinh Gia Than from granite that was clearly imported and dropped in place on purpose-built concrete foundations. It is massive, nearly 20 by 120 metres, is fronted by a formed lake and surrounded by 15 hectares of gardens, eight statues, telling the stories of other heroic mothers and child soldiers, along with a small museum and meeting room (why?) all appropriately themed. Inside the monument is a commemorative house with relevant displays and the signatures of many heroic mothers. Regardless of how you might feel about the overall look and feel this site is a must. It is still a work in progress the cost has been and is enormous approximately, VND410 billion. It is not well signposted so watch for hints after turning left at the T-intersection on the highway. The question remains, just as the functions of the administration are being steadily moved to Hoi An, was this out of the way place chosen for the provincial capital and such an overwhelming monument?

We visited this memorial on our way back from visiting another site as our driver suggested it. I was totally amazed and speechless, it's a beautiful monument to honour a lady who lost 9 sons, 1 grandson and 1 son-in-law in the Vietnam war. It's a gorgeous park with lots to take in. Don't miss it!
