#40 of 145 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.

  • Necessarily with the boat along the perfume River,-nice River Cruise, price good aushandeln-, and the pagoda and environment to allow effect. Sure, more in the late afternoon - evening hours worth visiting!

  • Strategically located Pagoda with nice views of the area and the nearby Perfume River. Active monastery with monks in attendance. Tranquil site for reflection.  more »
  • This pagoda is situated on the banks of the river that divides into 2 the city of hue, the site is great so I guess 2 3 h are the minimum if you want to see something because behind the pagoda opening the temple including historic buildings and gardens with Bonsai.
