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

People are reviewing the wrong monastery/pagoda. This is quite separate from Truc Lam and the associated cable car (actually small gondolas). So read these reviews with great care.

Thien Vuong Co Sat pagoda is also called the chinese pagoda. We rented a motorbike and reached this pagoda (I think it is Truc Lam zen monastery that is accessible by cable car, not this one). The main features are its location (on a hillock) amidst pine forest, it's comparatively less frequented by tourists (as its a little away from... More

Blooming flowers, peaceful monastery and scenic backdrops. One spot you have to visit. Also do not miss the cable car ride!
