The Thien Mu Pagoda was a part of our dragon boat tour. The Pagoda was lovely and fun to explore but I think the overall dragon boat tour experience was what I enjoyed most. We had a private boar, the family made us lunch, we stopped at three different sights (Thien Mu was one of them) and enjoyed our time... More

The pagoda is nice to visit and grounds are pretty. The view of the river out front is beautiful. I think the tombs are more impressive but it's not far from town so it's worth a trip if you have time.

Another place of interests to Tourists and a short ride from the city of Hue, this is an impressive Pagoda 7 levels high. There is a lot of history in this place, so please retain a local guide to enjoy the rich past of Vietnam

Nice place to visit. Free too. It's wont take you hours though. We did it as a quick stop lasting about 30 mins. I'm sure you could spend longer. Tip: try to avoid midday when all monks are behind closed doors as it restricts what you can see.

Travelers agreed to Business Travel Vietnam that Thien Mu Pagoda, where Buddha is worshiped, is exactly an ideal stopover along the charming river. With the outstanding tower at the entrance of the pagoda, it seems to be an attraction impress people when boating along the river on dragon boats...The pagoda has an outstanding location with river and mountains far away.

We were very lucky to arrive at a time that the monastic community was at prayer. We saw and heard their chant and prayer ritual, which felt very spiritual and profund. Besides that this is a very serene and beautiful active monastic community in a very historic and attractive environment
