Religious Site
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.

  • It was fun to climb the staircase to the stunning views of the city and of course see the Buddha. It was also nice to do some activity before laying on the beach.  more »
  • Interesting cultural site to visit. The Buddha on top of the hill is a must see, but the walk up the steps is a bit challenging.  more »

  • 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 pagoda to see local culture. Historic place
  • 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.
  • Lovely pagoda..sleeping budda half way to the large white budda at the top...great views over Nha Trang...
  • One of the attractions in Nha Trang, built over 100 years ago, the white Buddha statue made it famous. Must visit!
