Linh Ung Pagoda, Da Nang

4.5
Situated in the Son Tra peninsula, Linh Ung Pagoda is the largest pagoda in the coastal city. Built in 2010, the pagoda boasts a unique marriage of modern and traditional Vietnamese architecture. Notice the white Buddha sculptures that illustrate various myths and stories in Buddhism. The highlight is the 67 metre high statue of the Goddess of Mercy (bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara) where it’s possible to go inside to view more Buddhist sculpture. Feel free to ask the monks about the history of the pagoda for a meaningful insight. To visit Linh Ung Pagoda and other attractions in Da Nang, use our Da Nang trip itinerary builder tool .

  • all the things are nice. we can see a huge Buddhist statue. you can see many statues and architectures. from the temple, you can see the sea. it is so good. i hope you will feel satisfied. there is no bus to go directly. if you want to go there, you should take a bike taxis or taxis.
  • Amazing place! The grounds, gardens and pagodas are just beautiful and the Lady Buddha herself, surreal. Lots of walking and plenty of steps but definitely worth the time.
  • Main shrine has a large seating capacity where is the most dignified and pure. In the middle, there is a Sakyamuni Buddha statue, the right side has an Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva statue and the left side has a Buddha Tripitaka statue, four Guardians and 18 Arhats are arranged by a rule to protect the main shrine. Each statue is the embodiment of different emotions “joy, anger, love, and hate” of people that makes the landscape here extremely vivid. Most of tourists who come here are surprised to see these Arhat statues portrayed sophisticated, sharp but smooth. 18 stone Arhat statues are one of the most distinctive features of Ling Ung pagoda which were carved up by artist Nguyen Viet Minh (The head of Non Nuoc craft village) with monolithic white stone materials brought from Thanh Hoa. The main shrine of Linh Ung pagoda was built in contemporary style combined with inherent tradition of pagodas in Vietnam, with curved roof in dragon shape, the solid pillars surrounded by sophisticated sinuous dragons. The whole populations of items as main shrine, ancestral home, auditorium, and Arhat statue garden, etc., were built with grand scale in Linh Ung pagoda. Especially, in Linh Ung – Bai But pagoda, there’s an Lady Buddha statue which is considered as the tallest one in Vietnam (67m high, 35m lotus diameter, equivalent to a 30-storey building).
  • This is really worth the visit. It has a beautiful scenic view overlooking Da Nang. Definitely worth going during sunset.
  • Free entry. Offers good views of the Da nang skyline. If you can go whilst the sun is setting it's beautiful.
