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.

    Weather is located in the city, 10 minutes from the beach by bus go by taxi. The extensive territory, on top of a large white figure of the Buddha. To get to the top, you will need to climb the stairs, the path will be a statue of a reclining Buddha. From the top overlooking the city. Of the minuses in the territory quite messy, but not critical. The current pagoda, the monks can be found on site and in the premises of the worshipers.

    Follow the steps from pagodans back going to after a few hundred steps up to the top of the mountain. There is a white very high and wide statue of BUDDHA: Inside the statue found shapes and paintings, and a guard sitting inside the door. Many cruisers were perched at the Buddha statue and below the statue, there was a cemetery. Good views of Nha Trang from the mountain top by the statue! Tourist attraction!

    It's a nice temple to see some local culture, which is hard to find in Nha Trang. Maybe it was a slow day but there weren't too many tourists and nobody was fishing for donations or anything. I had a very nice walk around to see the sights and views of the city.

    Nice place to visit and get your Buddhist temple history of the area (and is is impressive). Plus some good views of the surrounding suburbs. But the sheer amount of people looking to extract money or ask for donations or just hassle you is a major buzzkill to any serenity.
