  • Visited during a trip to Dalat. The pagoda was Built from 1949 to 1952. In 1990 the reconstruction was carried out. In the same year the pagoda put a 10-ton bell, one of the largest in Vietnam. They Built a pagoda of fragments glass, ceramics and porcelain. Beautiful, unusual, but crowds of tourists.

  • A sacred place in Dali, with architectural works inlaid with Vietnam's largest porcelain! But the place has partially lost its sacred nature, as it attracts many tourists and, of course, opens a lot of shops in temples, losing some of its nature. Attractive attractions have many records of Vietnam and the world. The temple was built very finely. Destinations not to be missed when coming to Dalat

  • The temple has an incredibly unique architecture, different from the works I've ever gone. However, the trade scene was rather messy to lose its sanctuary.

  • One of the best temples I have ever visited. Despite the big crowd the place is spacious enough to enjoy. The decoration is breathtaking and so detailed that will blow your mind. Totally recommended.
  • Amazing place, one of the most interesting pagodas we’ve seen in S E Asia. Really intricate decorations! It was very busy when we went so I recommend getting there early morning. Also, we went on the steam train but it meant we only had 40 minutes to explore and we could have spent much longer. Also, make sure to search for the dungeon underneath the souvenir shop.
  • We have experienced many pagodas on our travels through Asia so usually we give them a miss unless they seem spectacular. This one was great because it was very different from others because it's all glass and porcelain. Also there were really cool carved trees, tables, and rocks inside one of the buildings. If you are up for it there is also a basement "hell" type of room where you wind through evil and torture scenes; very strange experience.
  • The architecture is gorgeous with debris of bottles, bowls, mirror.... but this is commercial pagoda. They sell a lot of products, furniture, jade, food.... I feel not a sacred temple for praying, too crowded.
  • This was built by a monk, one of three in the central Vietnam area, and is very ornate. Do visit the 18 gates of Hell in the basement of the building which has local marble and wood furniture for sale. The narration is in Vietnamese and there is not much English signage, but the message is still clear - do good while you are alive or you may pay for those sins in Hell. This place also features a number of large and remarkable Buddhas, especially a white one in one of the buildings and one that looks like it is made entirely of flowers.
