Sung Hung Pagoda, Phu Quoc Island

At the foot of a mountain and surrounded by tall trees, Sung Hung Pagoda remains one of the oldest religious structures on the island. Probably erected in the 10the century, the shrine was renovated twice in the 20th century. Despite the many changes made to it over the years, the site seems to retain much of its old-fashioned atmosphere and look. The elaborate and colorful altar, topped with several Buddha statues and set against a "flying dragon" painting, dominates the main hall. Sung Hung Pagoda is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Phu Quoc Island Edition.

  • The Pagoda is the Union of two sanctuaries and is the oldest on the island of Phu Quoc. In the front yard is the statue of the goddess of mercy, standing in the middle of a Lotus pond, and a small temple with a bronze Bell and numerous sculptures, while in the main room of prayer, which is located on the third floor there are three statues of Buddha. Located near the night market.

  • It is characterized by coloring stand out in the large temple located near the port. Original Buddhism is often merged with indigenous beliefs in that area, it is a missionary religion, God of the indigenous here seems to be "soil God (THO THAN MIEU)" was enshrined in the precincts. However, Asia across the sea, called "tutanmay" in Okinawa, according to acquaintances of Okinawan was accompanied by good faith and the religion experienced a strange connection.

  • Pagoda Sung Xyng Ko Tu (Sung Hung Co Tu) is one of the most famous among the most beautiful pagodas of the island. Was built in Duong Dong (Duong Dong) in the early 20th century. Located at the bottom of the Hill, surrounded by vast old trees. At the beginning of the temple's inner courtyard, where you can get free of charge from 7:00 up to 18:00 without any problems, through the main entrance consisting of three gates, visitors are greeted the statue of a Buddhist deity in female guise. On site at the foot of the Hill, our eyes appeared a number of other buildings, interesting architectural and sculptural compositions and shapes characteristic of such religious buildings.
