4.5/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
Explore a peaceful compound near Tuyền Lăm Lake at Thien Vien Truc Lam, which practices the teachings of Zen Buddhism. As you approach the holy site, notice the prominent bell tower and the pagoda's tiled roofs as they contrast the surrounding pine forest. You can access the temple either directly via 61 steps, or go past the lake and climb 222 steps to the main courtyard through the triple-gated entrance. The public area located on a spacious plateau overlooks Benhuit Mountain and contains a ceremonial hall with a lotus-seated Gautama Buddha statue, flanked by guest facilities and a rose garden on the left and a bell tower on the right. The domestic area for monks and nuns remains closed to the public.

  • Hands down the most beautiful and well kept pagoda I've been to. Naturally being near Da Lat means the flowers and Bonsai covering the grounds are masterfully arranged and diverse. It's a working monastery so you'll see monks anxiously engaged in good works all over the place. The lake below is beautiful.
  • There are nicer pagodas around but this is sorrounded by nature and it's also historical place. Little bit crowded but ok.
  • Historical place. A bit crowded and touristy. Variety of souvenir shops.
  • Beautiful place with all the monks still going about their daily lives there. Look up on tor because their spiders are HUGE. And the webs they spin, are giants. Don't get trapped in one of those. Explore the whole area and you'll find a path down to the lake.
  • Peaceful, quiet and very well kept. It's easy to spend a whole day there just walking around the grounds.
