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.

  • This is where spirituality, appropriate to current temple scene. On top, place the white Buddha has been hitting the store also ngổn the deceased remains horizontal, no one moved. Ask a photographer at that time, they said moved the other way, this remains so they vandalize.

  • Wanted to reach the pagoda take bus No. 2 (as indicated on the map), but somehow we've planted something long explaining. This has given us the strength to make jerk and on the road, past the Church railway station, reach it 20-25 minutes. It is interesting to visit. From the observation deck-beautiful Nha Trang by ferry.

  • Free entry to this place. In front of the temple is a small garden with shady trees. Shoes must be taken off to enter the temple. On the right of the temple this is a pathway to go to the Buddha statue. You can cross the temple corridor with your shoes on as this area is not considered the praying area. There are hundreds of steps to get to the top. Slightly tiring. From the top, nice town view, there is a restaurant, lots of photos can be taken in relation to the statue. It is worth climbing. Nice cooling wind.
  • It is the place you must go when visiting Nha Trang. There are so many romantic views besides the great beauty of the Lying Budda and the Giant White Stone Budda on top of the mountain. Btw, you should complete your journey before 10:30am if you visited Long Son Temple in the morning so that you could have the right to explore a small temple inside the White Stone Budda. I'll stop spoiling now. Long Son Temple is waiting for you.
  • Good views of Nha Trang from the top. Recommend if you have time in Nha Trang.
  • Largest one in Nha trang and free ..cool gardens and no scams that i saw! Also walk up top to the reclining Buddha at top its very cool and a good view
  • Beautiful pagoda with a big Buddha from which the Nha Trang city can be seen. Inside the pagoda, there is a delicious vegetarian restaurant, which must be absolutely tasted!
