Thien Mu was included in the tour to the royal tombs. It was a great stop to explore and experience calmness in. I was impressed with the structure and loved walking around the pagoda.

I wouldn't go out of my way to see it but still a nice stop. You can't actually get into or look into the pagoda. That being said it is free to enter the grounds.

From the moment we stood on the roadside at the base of the Thien Mu Pagoda, I loved it. It rose to the sky like an intricate tiered birthday cake.

Quite impressed with the Pagoda. The stairs leading to the entrance and beyond you can see the 7 storey tower. Unfortunately with the crowds it's difficult to get a decent picture.

This place is about a 15 minute bike ride (3km) from the Citadel and is worth a visit. Impressive buildings throughout the surprising large site. If time it right you may even get to see the monks praying inside the main pagoda !

This was one of the places we most wanted to visit during our trip to Vietnam, & it didn't disappoint. It's ever bit as impressive as its photos suggest it will be. Don't miss it!

This Pagoda and the attached monastry is an interesting stop on the cruise on the Perfume River. We stopped there when it was praying time for the monks. Very inspiring.

Lovely old pagoda, active Bhuddist monestery. Lovely buildings, sems to absorb the crowds and felt more relaxed than many others. Can do a boat trip from there if wish, see the pictures and go.
