Fantastic fantastic fantastic The young munks are playing football barefoot in the rear of the complex in the late afternoon, whilst other munks are sitting and meditating elsewhere. The view and the feel is fantastic. A must see

It's a beautiful and peaceful pagoda. We got just in time of prayers and it was so peaceful. The place is well taken care of. Definitely worth seeing. BE AWARE of parking prices if you are not in a tour. These parking spaces for bikes try to overcharge to foreigners.

Somehow the pagode didn't grab us like the tombs did. Many, many tourists who would love to be on a picture with the pagoda in the background. The temple guards on the side are very colourful (and less popular with the photographers). Nice view on the Perfume River though. Entrance to the Thien Mu Pagoda is free of charge

This pagoda is not huge but very peaceful and tranquil. The best way to go is by dragon boat up the Perfume River, gorgeous scenery

I was surprised by how lovely this area is.... The pagoda is just the beginning. There are several structures behind it that are well worth a visit with lots of things to see. The monks here are very active and watching them bustle about performing their duties was delightful. I'd highly recommend!

We visited this Pagoda on the way back down the Perfume River to Hue, after visiting the Tomb of Minh Mang. This is again quite different from all the other sites we have visited, but definitely worth a look and a wander around the gardens. The grounds are located high up above the river and you climb a number of... More

I tried coming here later in the evening to avoid the crowds but they were still there. Not very peaceful but still very much worth a look. You can do it all in less than an hour. There are no closing times either.
