Landmark
Bút Tháp Temple is a Buddhist temple located near the dyke of the Đuống River, Thuận Thành District, Bắc Ninh Province, Vietnam. The temple is also popularly called Nhan Thap Temple. The temple houses the biggest Avalokiteśvara statue with one thousand eyes and a thousand arms. But Thap Temple is one of the most famous pagodas in Viet Nam. Inside, there are various valuable ancient objects and statues, which are considered to be Vietnamese masterpieces of 17th-century wood carving. During the same time the temple had become famous for the venerable abbot and Zen master Chuyet Chuyet 1590 - 1644.The pagoda has 10 buildings spreading for 100 meters from the three-entrance gate to the bell-tower and back house. Inside the temple are more than 50 statues of different sizes including the Triad Buddha, Manjusri on a blue lion and Samantabhadra on a white elephant. The most remarkable is the thousand-handed and thousand-eyed Guanyin, which is described as a sculptural masterpiece of Vietnam.The architecture, sculpture and decoration of the temple were exclusively confined to the 17th century, so it was the best intact and typical example of Vietnam’s classical Buddhist art.

  • A few days ago, I was back in but Thap. The work on the central buildings are almost completed and the grounds will be finished in a few weeks. A beautiful place to follow the thoughts of Confucius. A special recommendation is Dong HO (printer one art). Just a few km from but Thap. Best greetings from Hai Duong Juergen Eichhorn

  • A place to see, the pagoda is very beautiful as well as the gardens, this pagoda is located in the center of Hanoi. However be wary of street vendors, who are at the entrance the scam is still topical on the currency rendering. It is better to buy in a Shop, better than the actual price! ***************************************************************************************

  • But Thap is located outside the city, a half-hour drive from Hanoi. The temple complex was founded in the thirteenth century as a monastery. This Buddhist temple is located in the Bell Tower five stories: pretty high for the middle ages. And inside the temple-tysjacherukoj statue of the goddess, one of the main religion of Buddhism.
