A very beautiful temple near the perfume river. You should definitely watch the sunset behind the mountains when you go there.

A special place for Buddhists but also a restful place for anyone. As with many pagodas it has steps up so not easily accessible if you have problems with mobility.

We took the inland road to Thien Mu Pagoda instead of a cruise via Perfume River. The Pagoda appeared prominently as you stepped into the main ground overlooking the Perfume River. There was more to see other than the Pagoda as there were other buildings behind the Pagoda including a temple, statue of a big tortoise and a tomb of... More

It is not far from central Hue by car. It is a nice place to drop by. Besides the Pagoda itself, there is a monastery behind.

Had not expected the calming atmosphere of this active monastery with its beautiful riverside setting and lovely collection of buildings and gardens. We arrived during a morning prayer ceremony which created an amazing atmosphere.

This is not a huge pagoda but it's architecture and location was nice and peaceful . It is better to take a dragon boat tour up the river to visit this pagoda as it is quite busy area and need your guide to look after.

This pagoda is dedicated to the Heavenly old lady who as the legend goes predicted that a Lord will come and build a pagoda there. The pagoda subsequently built by Lord Nguyen Hoang in 1601 with more structures added subsequently. The pagoda is situated between the Perfume river and the Pine forest on the other end. It is built in... More
