With a gorgeous view over the Perfume River, this pagoda is an well worth a visit. Like so many sites this is so more informative and interesting in the company of a knowledgeable guide or at least do a bit of research prior to visiting.

This place is just to look at the pagoda. We cannot enter inside the pagoda; however looking it is surely worth visiting. Although I have visited other East Asian countries, the shape of the pagoda is unique compared to other ones in other countries.

It was interesting to see the vintage car used by the monk who burnt himself in protest of the government in 1963 in the streets of Saigon.

I am not so big on visiting Buddhist sites as I have seen many in my travels and they all seem to run together. That said, I am very glad that I did visit this one. The pagoda itself is pretty standard stuff but the monastery and more grounds are very,very good. If your tour guide can help with plant... More

We travelled by boat to thien mu pagoda, it was well worth the visit. Such a lovely place, the stairs maybe a problem for people who have physical issues, particularly with their knees! Once up the stairs the walk around is easy going and very beautiful. Its better to take your time and not have to rush around.

Medium amount of steps to climb to see, but worth it, the actual grounds go quite a way back. As well as the pagoda, on site there are an impressive collection of beautiful Bonzi trees, And the actual car belonging to the monk who set him self on fire in protest

We visited by taxi but people can visit by boat, a short ride from Hue. We were able to witness a ceremony taking place, you need to remove your shoes to be able to watch. The gardens are very peaceful and the pagoda is beautiful.

This wonderful pagoda rises above the Northwest bank of the perfume river in Hue. The pagoda is dwarfed by the presence of a magnificent seven story octagonal tower which I have to say is magnificent. In the grounds of both pagoda and tower lies a most beautiful bronze bell housed in a traditionally built pavilion, ornate carvings decorate the roof... More
