  • There are two giant Buddha statues, the most distinctive temples in the mile area. The place is wide open and there is a Lotus lake in the temple, which is a good place to shoot flowers. Temples are quiet, please keep your voice inside

  • What a astonishing place, 2 big Buddhas at the same time it's quite a rarity, the place is not too big so easily visited in a short time. It's between ho chi Minh and the Mekong Delta which makes it s good spot to visit between the two. I was overall impressed and honestly no words can describe.its beauty, just take a look at the pictures I took. The tower itself is so nice and it reminds me of any movie that features a tower like this. At 4.30pm ish no crowd, no tourists at all.
  • Iconic temple in the Mekong Delta. There is a giant Laughing Buddha statue here, among several other smaller statues. If you take the day trip to Mekong delta through one of the tour companies, this is in the list of places that you will visit.
  • A memorable place to visit. The place is tidy and well kept. Parking slots are available on the site. The place was not very crowded. You can attend to religious activities without any disturbances from the surroundings.
  • Visit this pagoda before 9am to avoid the tourist crowd. Beautiful blend of different architectural style, very intricate as well. They have 3 big Buddha statues outside which I am not very impressed but the main building is a treasure: 18 monks statues, plus the 2 good-bad guardians, the elaborating wood craftmanship is impressive, the roof and the struture of the 2 halls connecting by a small garden in the middle. See it for yourself.
  • Not like other traditional pagodas or temples; this looks like a gorgeous palace with amazing achitectural designs, surrounded with spacious paths and well-cared bonsais old trees.
