Linh Ung Pagoda, a spiritual destination on Son Tra peninsula

Translated by Bing
Linh Ung Pagoda is located on Son Tra peninsula (Da Nang), a place with rare beautiful nature, overlooking the East Sea and has the tallest Bodhisattva statue in Vietnam.

Located on Son Tra peninsula (Da Nang), Linh Ung - Bai But Pagoda is located about 10km northeast of the city center. The pagoda was inaugurated in July 2010 on an area of about 12ha.

Although not the first Linh Ung pagoda in Da Nang, this is the largest of the 3 pagodas of the same name.

The temple is not only famous for its sanctuary spiritual culture but also known as a popular tourist destination of Son Tra.

The items are built with sophisticated architecture. The main hall is roofed with a curved tile roof in the shape of a dragon, surrounded by large solid pillars. Within the temple grounds, the entrance to the main hall is where the statue of Master Shakyamuni Buddha and the statue of Guan Shiyin Buddha and the Tripitaka Buddha are displayed. Four Dragon Guardian Gods and 18 Arhats are arranged on both sides of the entrance road.

Linh Ung Pagoda has a statue of Quan The Yin Buddha which is considered the tallest in Vietnam. The statue is 67m high, the diameter of the lotus building is 35m. The statue stands with its back against the mountain, facing the sea. In summer, the statue grounds are filled with the colors of flowers.

Thanks to being located in a solid terrain with immense scenery, behind is mountains, in front of the sea with rare natural beauty, difficult for any pagoda to have, Linh Ung Pagoda is an attractive destination for tourists from all over the world. The way to Linh Ung Pagoda this season has a lot of confetti, which is an interesting "check-in" point for young people.

The temple is also a place to live, foraging for golden monkeys. Monkeys here are fed by tourists, so they are so used to the appearance of humans. Management units have posted signs reminding visitors not to feed wild animals.

The temple offers parking services supervised by Buddhists who take turns, at arbitrary or free fares. The management unit also hung a sign "no brokerage, no solicitation" at the waiting point of the technology taxi driver.
