Possibly Hue’s most recognizable landmark, this pagoda contains numerous living and working buildings for its resident monks, a bell tower and a seven-tiered monument in front.

Thien Mu was just lovely - a real sense of peace surrounded us and the views from the hill were amazing. A local guide is recommended to understand the history and a small or private group. These aren't sites you want to be hustled around...More

I'm not sure of the closing time, however if you want to wander around the outside of it you can. The exterior of the pagoda is worth seeing if that is all the time you have.
