#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.

  • 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.

  • Pros:: nice view Cons: 1.some places are off limits under renovation. 2. Beware of people offering joss sticks for praying and demanding exorbitant fees. It is better you buy joss sticks if you are go...  more »
  • 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.

  • 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.
