A spacious retreat with pretty temples and gardens, Thien Vien Truc Lam is a bustling, relatively new tourist attraction that draws big crowds. Ignore the crowds; enjoy the views.

This was a nice view in general where you can watch part of Tuyen Lam Lake. There were a lot of trees/ plants collection in this place. However, there were areas strictly used for monks and special members that you cannot get through.

This one is worthy the most beautiful monastery in Vietnam. We are suprised of big pines, garden of multiple flower, and silent atmostphere! Do not miss this must-see, especially, you can take the cable (3,5$/ person/ way), you will get a awesome view from there.

My young son and I visited Da Lat after being Ho Chi Minh City for a week. The peaceful beauty of Thien Vien Truc Lam after the hustle and bustle of the city was a welcome feeling. The scenic views are gorgeous. We went on a cool, overcast day and I think that was a great choice. It would have... More

This is very calm and peaceful place, if you need couple moments to relax and contemplate this a place for you. Even if you don't, it's still worth visiting - just for the scenery.

We loved the feel of Da Lat and this was the perfect little trip out. The cable car was a short cheap taxi ride out of the centre of Da Lat (c. 7km). We got there and we were straight onto the cable car having paid the small entrance fee. The cable ride is fairly short and takes you away... More

A very peaceful site with lovely pagoda / temples. Lovely walk with lots of trees and birds chipping. Good view over the city as well. The cable ride tickets were not that expensive.

It was nice to finally get out of the noisy cities and into nature. The cable car was a nice and scenic ride and the temple was soothing and spiritual. I highly recommend coming here.
