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.

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

A lovely place to relax, a few km from downtown, reachable by cable car or by road (100 dong by metered taxi ). A small flower garden to walk around, and a view overlooking the scenery.

It's a beautiful and tranquil place. Picturesque place that you definitely need to go to and walk the grounds. There is also a little lake located at the end.

Make sure you make use of the cable car when visiting this temple. The views during the 'ride' are awesome. At the monastery, you'll find peace and beautiful gardens. There are a few buildings with temples or shrines to see. If you have time, do the walk down the hill to see the waterfront and the boats on the lake.
