Long Son Pagoda, Nha Trang

3.9
#2 of 10 in Historic Sites in Nha Trang
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. Climb 152 steps to the top of the mountain to enjoy the big Buddha arising from lush greenery from a distance, as well as gaining panoramic views over the city.

  • Amazing Buddha at the top, and also the sleeping buddha a few steps down, could be hard to miss but look for it.  more »
  • Not worth the visit, too much hostility. My bf and I went in the evening just a little after sunset, and there was a girl offering incense to pray for good luck. I initially refused, and she pressed m...  more »
  • A bit far from downtown beach area, so taxi is required. If you have not seen temples and Budda’s before will find interesting. If you been to Thailand, or Chinese temples or HK Budha... this is is ve...  more »

  • With all due respect, the pictures speak for themselves. Beautiful temple on the inside. But seriously... the cafe at the top where the sitting Buddha is allowed to dump all their coconuts, straws, plastic cups and wrappers over the edge just a few meters from where people are praying? Parking attendants charging 10000 for parking that should be free.
  • It,s okay. Not so old,are verry big.have a meny peaple from work,are better you Look alone. Presse,you Look for YouTube dress code,is a church, not t Shirt,and long pants.give in Nha Trang a loot og verry old pagode.
  • You need to visit here. Previously, this Pagoda and the territory next to it, was a more peaceful place. Now many tourists. But if you get into a period when there are few tourists, you will find that pacification.
  • The pagoda/monastery is a wide place. Many tourists are coming in groups or in tours and please avoid some incense sellers. They are very rude. They are kept selling their inceses with their price. Drinks and ice cream above the pagoda are being sold more expensive than the restaurant below. Many monks round. At noon, it is really burning hot. From top, we can see Nha Trang city. There are big white Buddha on the peak, bell tower, Sleeping Buddha statues, and many cemetery headboards from the dead. To go to the peak, we must step on many stairs, around hundreds. Some tourists wear tank tops and shorts that in my opinion it is not wise and suitable for visiting worship places.
  • Good for something to do in this area. I wouldn't come to Nha trang for this though. Disabled man at the temple yelled at a lot of tourists for not being covered up enough. Apparently knees and shoulders covered here isn't enough.
