Kito Status- Vung Tau City

Christ the King, of Vũng Tàu (Vietnamese: Tượng Chúa Kitô Vua) is a statue of  Jesus, standing on Mount Nho in Vung Tau, Ba Ria Vung Tau province. The Vietnam Catholic Association built the statue in 1974 and it was completed in 1993.

It is 32 metres (105 ft) high, standing on a 4 metres (13 ft) high platform, for a 36 metres (118 ft) total monument height with two outstretched arms spanning 18.3 metres (60 ft). There is a 133-step staircase inside the statue.

The challenge for tourists, though, is to walk up 1,000 stone steps to reach the summit. It is a long trek but there are some stops for trekkers to take a break, drink water and take some photos of the sea and surrounding areas below. The path is decorated by many trees and flowers, especially plumeria flowers, spreading its fragrance around the location. Standing in front of the statue, you can imagine a giant stretching his hands out to hold you as it is 32m high and extending hands is 18.3m long putting in parallelepiped with a bas-relief of Christ and his 12 disciples, a replica of the painting ‘The party of separation’ by Leonardo da Vinci.

The monument is similar to the famous statue in Rio de Janerio, Brazil. The statue’s body can hold hundreds of people, there are about 130 steps up to the neck, shoulders and wrists of the statue in which four or five people can stand and enjoy the panoramic view of Vung Tau. Each hand is 2.2m wide and the middle finger is 1.1m long, and each foot is 1.1m wide. The statue is south-facing to the East Sea with the benevolent and tolerant face, the widely outstretched arms to protect his followers. Under its foot are exhibits illustrating its construction from start to finish. There are also statues describing metaphors that Jesus Christ taught his followers more than 2, 000 years ago. The site is not only an attraction for tourists but also a site for fit locals to do some morning exercise.
