This is a really beautiful, really peaceful place. It is worth taking a bit of time to look around here, and also have someone explain a little bit about its history. Well worth a visit.

Lovely setting and very peaceful. This is a Buddhist monastery that is well worth a visit. There is more to the site than just a pagoda. It has well kept garden areas. Lovely.

As a practitioner in the Plum Village tradition, it was very exciting for me to visit this pagoda where Thich Naht Hanh ordained, and I believe remains abbot in name. As I have done retreats at Thai Plum Village, I have met many of the...More
