  • Every time up both temples from Dalat and the occasional visiting the pagoda Linh Phuoc Pagoda also known as Chua Ve Chai because of special design! There are many large Buddha pagoda and very beautiful! And there are 18 levels of hell commandments every day things in life again. Visit his temple is all about eating vegetarian elderberry buy because it's so delicious!

  • A lot of things to see here, I especially liked going up in the temple's tower and the really spooky dungeon representing some sort of hell in the basement of the temple.  more »
  • The incredible beauty of the pagoda, probably the most beautiful of seen in Vietnam. If you travel-be sure to visit!

  • Amazing Pagoda which you can climb to the top for an amazing view. The huge statues are also impressive. There is a free parking area for motorbikes and a few minor shops and restaurants. Overall worth a visit.
  • The most interesting pagoda I've seen in Vietnam. There are many pagodas in Vietnam, so many that we sometimes say we have "pagoda fatigue" because we've been fortunate enough to travel and see many of them. But this one is special. The entire thing is made from recycled glass bottles and broken ceramic cups and bowls. The mosaics are meticulously designed with such detail it's too much for the eyes to absorb fully. And the giant female buddha is made with thousands of dried flowers grown in Dalat. Quite an amazing sight.
  • it's the first temper i ever gave five stars. the exterior is eye catching using pieces of titles and colourful chinas. the motifs are so creative that they even include a image of bus, which will give you a blast when you spot it.
  • Serious eye candy. The craziest place. It was so exciting to look at all the intricate tile mosaic work everywhere. A must see!
  • Very big temple. Nice dragons and nice faience. Go there for the sunset the light is better and there is less people.
