  • I took a tuk tuk up here, which was a breezy ride. Amazing how the Goddess of Mercy is much bigger than Christ The Redeemer in Rio. You might see some monkeys here too.
  • Amazing view from a beautiful temple on son tra peninsula! Absolutely suggested the sunset time which isn't too hot and the view is simply spectacular!!
  • Beautiful, serene garden settings, big lady Buddha and gorgeous wee pagoda. Great views looking over Da Nang and you can find friendly monkeys just out the back off the dirt road to feed some fruit to.
  • Linh Ung Buddhist Temple was built in 2010. The temple complex sits on the Southern facing Slope of Son Tra Peninsular and its most outstanding feature, the sixty seven metre tall statue of “Quam the Am” is visible from several kilometres away. Getting to the temple/pagoda complex is easy enough; just follow the coastal (beach) road in the direction (North) of the statue. The beach road eventually ascends the lower slopes of the peninsular. As it winds around the coastal hills and works its way up to the temple entrance, you get an uninterrupted view out over the bay and beaches to the South. The Linh Ung pagoda is well signposted and the entrance is on the left as you ascend the hill. There is a steep access road leading to a carpark some fifty meters above the hill road. From the carpark a long flight of stairs takes you to the impressive main entry gate. For those wishing to get some morning photos in an uncrowded setting, I would highly recommend getting there by nine am. By ten am the tour busses begin arriving and the site becomes rather crowded. Alternatively going later in the afternoon, or early evening is also a good option as the lights which illuminate the statue are turned on at dusk. Having done both the morning and evening visits, I would say the evening is probably the more preferable. The heat and the glare of the sun become fairly intense as the morning wears on and by mid-afternoon it can be scorching, with little shade available. By late afternoon the heat goes out of the day, most of the tour busses have departed and there seems to be a more restful ambience about the place. With the approaching dusk the glittering lights of Da Nang City are a colourful carpet to the southern horizon. With the fading of the colours of the sunset the skies darken and, much to the appreciation of everyone willing to wait around, the illuminating lights for “Quam the Am” statue are turned on – usually at about six thirty pm. Unnoticeable during the day, there is a green light in the middle of the statues forehead which represents the “third eye.”
