This is a real surprise to discover a gem in the rough as we took the old train to Trại Màt. Just a short walk and the Linh Phước Pagoda was there for us to admire. Most of the decorations were made mosaic style by broken porcelain. Where did they find these materials? The statues are magnificent specially hundreds of... More

The Linh Phuoc Pagoda is a very interesting piece of architecture. Next to it is a pagoda with a wishing bell where you write your wish and ring the bell thrice. Then there is Quan Yin, goddess of mercy made of everlasting flowers and a still unfinished pagoda with more than 300 Quan Yins.

This is not just another pagoda but a spectacular, overloaded place to walk around. A bit out of town but easy accessible by taxi. The wood-carving furniture sales at the bottom floor is a sight in itself. If you have kids there is a incredibly misplaced "horror walk" in the basement. It has nothing to do with the pagoda.

I was a little prepared after reading the below reviews, but my wife who is Vietnamese was not enthusiastic expecting just another pagoda like many others. You must see her amusement! Truly, I couldn't stop looking at the mosaics and didn't want want to leave. Simply unforgettable. All the pictures of the pagoda are already here, however there are no... More

The Linh Phuoc Pagoda is breath-taking. You will need at least 30 minutes to fully enjoy its beauty. I can only advise to go there with the old train leaving from the Dalat Old Railway Station, it will make the visit even more impressive.

Very nice and colorful pagoda with some surprising buddha statues in different small corners. Was very busy during our visit, the whole front area was filled with buses.

It was interesting to walk around and to see the actual temple but things like the wall made of beer bottles was a little much.

I like the pagoda because of its mosaics and colors. There were just a few people visiting at the same time, and most were nons. It did not even feel to be at a touristic place.

For me, this complex was the highlight of our three weeks in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, even though the rain made it hard to fully appreciate. Bursting with color and wonderful images constructed from glass, pottery and porcelain debris, it seems that every inch of wall and ceiling is highly decorated. There are multiple structures, multiple spaces within them, and... More

If you love arts or are interested in chinese/vietnamese cultures, you should visit. We really enjoyed admiring the 'mosiac art' located on every walls and celings. These are time consuming and I believe painstakingly created by the monks using broken pieces of ceramics and glass beer bottles. Absolutely amazing. There is a huge "Goddess of Mercy" statue that is "sewn"... More
