  • Our hostess advised us to take the old train to the pagoda. Absolutely worthwhile! The pagoda is a colourful place with incomparable charisma. Unfortunately the time due to the scheduled departure of the train, not sufficient to indulge yet meditative effect of the place. That was the only downside. We would go again!

  • Locals call this pagoda Pagoda of the bottle, because broken beer bottles are the main part of the facade and the sculptures, which have designed the Buddha monks painstakingly hand. This very "earthly" fact does not detract however from the grandeur and the deep devotion of the faithful. The atmosphere in this place of faith is a very special and has impressed us.

  • Also known as another name: pagoda "Ve Chai", located in Trai Mat, 7 kms from Da Lat. It is an imposing structure, encrusted with thousands of pieces of broken bottles, ceramics and potatoes cooked. The pagoda is beautiful, it has many decorative patterns. You can see beside a stupa of 6 m high with seven floors. There is also a large Bell, richly carved. For example, you can take the tourist train to the station of Da Lat, but its price is quite high for a small ride which is no tourist interest since we see practically as greenhouses of culture for flowers and vegetables on both sides.

  • 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.
