Incredible vanity project for a terrible monarch

This guy was clearly a piece of work, who if he lived now would order a diamond-encrusted titanium giant selfie-stick paid for out of taxes. A deeply unsuccessful and unpopular... read more

I visited this pagoda as the last stop on a day trip to Hue from Danang. The entire tour group was weary after a three hour bus ride and walking the Imperial City. The pagoda has an impressive view of the beautiful Perfume River. What the tour guide didn't tell us was that the monk who set himself on fire... More

The .giant bell, is regarded as one of the most prized cultural relics of its time in Vietnam, The large marble... More

This guy was clearly a piece of work, who if he lived now would order a diamond-encrusted titanium giant selfie-stick paid for out of taxes. A deeply unsuccessful and unpopular monarch who had this mausoleum constructed having raised extra taxes. A real piece of work. Look at the photos inside of his funeral procession where the bearers took his bier... More

They say that once you've seen one Pagoda you've seen them all.....but I cab assure you that this one on the banks of the Perfume River in Hue is well worth the visit.. I was inspired by the way this particular Pagoda was constructed and the detail it displays.

The best time to visit is early in the morning, you can enjoy a peaceful time in this place. From the temple, you have a good view to Huong River, so peaceful and wonderful

I liked this because of it's location on the Perfume River. It's not so special or historically significant. It's just beautiful and a nice place to sit and have lunch with amazing scenery. Buy yourself a fresh cut coconut from the venders, climb the steps, and enjoy the surroundings and the view.
