About seven kilometers from the center of Tra Vinh Town in Tra Vinh Province, is a mystical romantic place with a pond covered in lotus. The pond named Ao ba Om (Mrs Om’s Pond) is ringed by old trees that time seemed to leave behind with exposed roots in bizarre shapes. The bulbous roots suspend mid air between the trees like weird bridges designed by Gaudi.
Here are some snapshots taken by The Saigon Times Daily’s reporter Doanh Doanh.
Ang Pagoda is near the pond. Locals say that people don’t cut down the trees as they are near the pagoda
Look at the tree roots and imagine what shapes you can see.
The pond looks very romantic in the evening. Many couples come here to sit with each other.
