See the statue of Ton Thich on lotus, and witness incredible architecture of Tu Dam Pagoda. Built in 17th century, the temple used to be a meeting space for Buddhist monks. Stand in front of it to see yin and yang roof decorated with dragons. Firstly go through the forecourt, then continue to central chamber, and lastly see the ancient area. The pagoda stands for freedom of religion, and played important role in developing Buddhism. Walk around the garden, and take the time to appreciate the holiness of the site.

  • Well worth a visit. Lovely view, interesting buildings and a very harmonious atmosphere. I loved the gardens and the amazing bonsai. 
  • The pagoda is located in front of the existing Buddhist monastery. She is the tallest of the Vietnamese pagodas, which are located on the territory of the temples. The monastery is famous for the fact that in 1963, one of the monks protesting the existing mode and then start the oppression of Buddhist monasteries, travelled by car to the central square of Hue and committed self-immolation. The machine itself and uveličinnye images from newspapers of the period are the main Pavilion of the monastery. What else is notable for the deceased Monk: when it's burnt body was falling, it fell on his back. It is a sign that man until the last was in mind, all held under the control of, and all felt. For if a person falls unconscious-he falls facing forward. Now this monk in the rank of the Saint.
