Admire a huge 24 m (79 ft) tall statue of White Gautama Buddha--the largest outdoor scultpure in Vietnam--at Long Son Pagoda, the largest pagoda in the country. Intricate dragon mosaics made of glass and ceramic tiles decorate the entrance to the temple, with the large statue of the reclining Buddha resting in the temple’s well-manicured garden.

  • Beautiful pagoda, which is worth a look. You can take a taxi from the Center and go on their own. Be sure to bring a small money, because if you decide to go to the temple which is located inside the statue of the Buddha, monk and the suit will provide global, for which then will ask for money. Monk to say bad, but its a LITTLE hard to understand at once.

  • Large pagoda which consists of several zones: the main part of the pagoda, the left part, area, where lies the huge Buddha and the upper part, where sits the white Buddha pagoda and a small inside. Entrance is free of charge. Top views of the mountains and Nha Trang. For pilgrims to visit is mandatory!

  • Amazing place for sunset, you can see the undeveloped are of the town from the hill. The restaurant beside this is a must go. It's delicious and cheap (15.000vnd) for Pho and almost all meals.
  • Big Buddahs in this pagoda and beautiful architecture, but don´t go there if its too hot, lots of steps :)

  • This place has the biggest budha statue in Vietnam. You can see it everywhere in this city. Come and explore the culture & people. Open everyday morning until sunset.
  • Two beautiful statues. The temple doesn't look or feel like Buddhist. Is all full of trash, turists and "guards" smoking cigarettes. They are rebuilding or bringing down the place (no idea) and is all cristianized: they charge you for "blessing" you!! Buddhism is absent.
