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.

  • Nice temple. One of the two temples to visit in Nha Trang. Worth a visit! Only 35 dong to get in which is a bargain. Don't forget it is a temple so you will need to wear appropriate clothingbut if you forget, they do have robes you can borrow. Some of the building has been restored but it's been done in a way that looks like it's original features. The massive white Buddha alone is beautiful and you don't have to walk up a hill for hours to see it.
  • Very good place to visit. Sadly the Pagoda was being repaired but we could visit the big Buddha. Close to the entry there is a very good vegetarian restaurant. Inside the big Buddha there is a place to worship very peaceful. Very recommended.
