#41 of 146 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.

  • Coming from "the perfume River" already docking with the feature "dragon boat" the first thing you see is the impressive 7-storey high tower over 21 metres, is also called "source of happiness". It is in fact an integral part of the Thien Mu pagoda.
