  • This is unlike any other Pagoda you will see in Vietnam- or perhaps anywhere in the world. It is not really religious in a way- more kitschy! It is like some Buddhists from the 60's who got ahold of s...  more »

  • wow .. very beautiful .. be sure to also checkout Hell section (under tallest pagoda .. down the steps semi basement is gift shop and in the far end is access down to the basement where 18 rooms or so of hell .. very impressing .. that's why they wrote for Vietnamese only) also center closed around 5pm .. and limited access 24/7.. PS as u exit onto main roar is there is a small market .. Pho there for 20,000 is one of the best .. PSS i think pagodas came from Nepal > China > Vietnam!
  • Very beautiful pagoda, some special as long dragon in garden, ladies budda with real flower, ....not finished yet. This pagoda very crowded, busy all time and so noisy from music and from some shop around temple. You should visit Linh Phuoc pagoda asap!
  • Interesting temple here. First the temple has a museum of wax monks that are in a circle. Second, there is the Diyu museum (18 floors of hell) in the basement, and a statue covered in flower petals. Awesome place to check out. Be careful as they do not allow photography in some areas.
  • Amazing pagoda to see lots of buddha statues and walking stair bay stair to see different statues and gain after-life knowledge by exploring 18 gates....
  • A great outing for those staying in Dalat. Well worth setting aside a few hours for. As many have noted, the architecture is superb. There are a range of buildings and towers to walk through and all reward those who do so patiently. There are crowds, but not too bad. They are also better bahaved than many elsewhere (especially in the north). There are very few hawkers. Entry us free. Parking was free. Well run on the whole. I'd love to see one change, but I don't feel I should dock them stars for it. It us a problem all over Vietnamese sites like this. It's the lighting. The interior light us often terrible for those looking to photograph the place. This is unfortunate since it is SUCH a photogenic place. They should specifically hire photographers to light it. It would greatly improve the experience and would make it a legendary destination.
