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.


The shrine is solemnly decorated with a huge statue of Buddha Sakyamuni preaching on a lotus podium in the center. The over-1.2-ton copper statue was casted in 1952 and inaugurated under the presidency of the Superior Monk Thich Tinh Khiet, Leader of Vietnam General Association of Buddhism.


The pagoda has been ruled by generations of Master Monks: Monk Thich Tri Thu (ruling in 1940), Monk Thich Dieu Hoang (from 1940 to 1947), Thich Tu Man (1947-1952), Thich Bich Nguyen (1952-1964) and Monk Thich Tu Man since 1964 until now.


The pagoda of Linh Son is considered a famous tourist attraction in Da Lat, welcoming thousands of tourists and Buddhists yearly.

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
