Scenic setting, well kept pagoda

Worth the visit! Very well kept pagoda on a mountain top.Large area to stroll around and discover. Many opportunities to just sit and absorb the peacefulness.

This place is clean, with fresh air and beautiful athough not so big. The monk is located inside the area (can not enter this area). The garden is very well managed and beautiful too. A must seen place in Dalat

I am not sure why this place had such high reviews. We visited based on TA ratings. It is very small. There is not much to see. And looking at photos and descriptions written by other TA reviewers (after we have visited), we think this place has been mixed up with Truc Lam pagoda (highly recommended) due to similar names?...

Impressive buildings like nothing i've seen before. Very touristy though but you would expect it for a place like this. Worth a couple of hours.

Not only the pagoda and its gardens offer a peaceful half day trip. If you get some time to spare while visiting make sure you stroll through the gardens and then follow the path right downhill through a pine forest until you come down to a lake shore. Tuyen Lam lake is a romantic place where young Vietnamese like to... More

It was almost hard to breathe there are thst many tourists and they never seem to stop arriving. The pagoda itself I found a bit boring, the garden was spectacular.

Very quite peaceful, serene place. It helps you reflect and truly spiritual place. The restrooms are a big mess.. don't even venture anywhere closeby.

I think this is the pagoda you can travel to by cable car. Very beautiful place - the gardens are amazing. The lake below isn't particularly interesting, but good if you need to stretch your legs.

This monastery is the most peaceful place we have visited. The cable car is closed from 1130 to 1330 , so get there early and take some lunch as it is set up for picnics in the amazing gardens. Be respectful, this is a very special place, we saw monks working in the gardens, doing their washing, cleaning paths. This... More
