Why Linh Son Pagoda is special ?
Linh Son Pagoda specific architecture is the Oriental style of simplicity and harmony. The two sides of roof edge are decorated with two dragons flanking the Moon. At the forecourt is a pair of wooden paralleled sentences to honor the Buddhist theories.

Tips for you
Because this Pagoda is close the Thien An hotel we visit at least once each trip. It's not the biggest or fanciest but we love to spend an hour wandering around and relaxing. Definitely worth a visit
