Usually when I see Trip Advisor listings like this, I assume it is the single structure. However, this is not. The Pagoda itself is pretty cool, but the gardens behind it are even better. Absolutely beauitful.

The Thien Mu Pagoda is not really on the banks of the river, it is across the road from the river. But don't let this minor piece of artistic license detract from a lovely example of Buddhist architecture. Wander slowly around the pagoda, temple and gardens for a wonderful experience.

Maybe it's because we were on our last stop after a month of touring Indochina, but this was a very forgettable stop for us. We had seen many, many pagodas, numerous monasteries, Asian gardens, hundreds of temples, thousands of Buddhas.....this was just another. The only remotely unique aspect of this complex is a display of a car which, in June... More

Peace and quiet away from the crowds. The Pagoda had plenty of interest with the subtleties carefully explained by our guide. Would recommend.

If you are in Hue, Vietnam, you must visit this pagoda. Beautiful. Breathtaking. If you are lucky enough to catch a prayer service - it will be one of the highlights of your trip.

Great little free visit, its amazing to see the history and little blue car. Monks still live here and its cool to see them during their daily routines while you walk around. I suggest getting a push bike and carrying on past the pagoda after your visit, its beautiful to bike through the rice paddys and an incredible and vast... More

The pagoda is just another Asian pagoda with a temple behind it. It's free and most tour groups stop here as part of the package but it isn't particularly unique. Instead, use your time to visit the AMAZING An Dinh Palace. It's not on the tours but is an amazing estate whose interior architecture story encapsulates Hue's experience as an... More

Take a dragon boat to get here and enjoy the leisurely 45-minute sail up the Perfume River. The first pagoda is a replica of the original pagoda that was destroyed in a typhoon and that has been recreated in smaller form at the back of the property. A peaceful stroll through the property will take you to a building that... More

The pagoda is scenic and the gardens surrounding it are lovely. I especially enjoyed the bonsai collection.

A lovely tranquil place, still inhabited by a small number of Buddhist monks. The tower is the highlight, although a stroll around the gardens is very pleasant.
