Tu Dam Pagoda, Hue

#39 of 204 in Things to do in Hue
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.

  • Beautiful and peaceful. You have to walk along the right to get into the temple. Beware: there was a lady that light an intense stick and showed you how to pray. Then she wanted one dollar.
  • Well maintained pagoda with large tower
  • Very nice Temple, not many tourists
  • One of the most ancient pagodas in Hue. The traditional design and decorative motifs of this pagoda are beautiful.
  • Awesome
