Why Linh Ung Pagoda is special ?

Considered as the largest pagoda by its scale and artistic architecture in Danang city, Linh Ung pagoda with the highest statue of Lady Buddha ( actually Lady Bodhisattva) in Vietnam created a wonderful place where visitors can free their mind by enjoying boundless ocean, beautiful and lively coastal road.

Linh Ung – Bai But pagoda features perfect harmony between the modern and traditional architectures of Vietnamese pagodas, especially in the three-entrance gate, the main chamber and the ancestors’ house.

The local people here believed that the statue of Lady Buddha or Goddess of Mercy not only protect the fisherman but also offering them strength for facing storms and strong waves.

What to explore at Linh Ung Pagoda?

On the way to see Linh Ung pagoda, you will pass a giant 3-door gate, then you will surprise how spectacular it is.

Just behind the entrance gate, there is a lovely courtyard with different kind of bonsai trees and 18 statues of aghast showing their expression. It is such a good place for your photos

If you want to see more about Buddhism, you can go into the main building of this pagoda, discover many statues of different Buddha, Bodhisattva and Arhats and a set of sculptural relief describing about the life of Shakyamuni

By walking to the statue, you may get stunned by the 67m high spectacular statue. Enjoy the view of the ocean, and the coastal stripe of Danang are the wonderful things that you can do here.

Just near the statue, there are steps down to a balcony where you can completely see the wonderful view.

It is more delightful if you can go to this place at night, from 6-8 pm when you can see the endless light stripe from Danang to Hoian and many fishing boats catching seafood.

How to get to Linh Ung Pagoda?

Because this pagoda is located on a peninsula, so there is no bus stop or train station nearby. The only way to, you can get there are by car, motorbike, bike or taxi.

By car: If you book a car or a taxi, that will be easy, and most of the taxi drivers will know there and take you to the pagoda fast. It’s about 200,000 VND from the Danang Airport to Linh Ung pagoda.

By motorbike: In case you want to go to that place by yourself, so just go to My Khe beach on Vo Nguyen Giap street first ( you caneven see the statue from there) then turn left ( if you turn right, you will go to Hoian), go straight along the beach ( about 8km) and turn right to the mountain side, then you just keep going about 1.5km further, finally you can see the entrance to the pagoda, following 200m windy road to the parking lot, then you can walk to the statue ( for parking there, the fee is up to you, just put money into the donation box )

If you want to ride your bike from Hoi An, so go to the traffic light near An Bang beach first, then turn left, keep riding about 20 km along the beach to see My Khe beach, then follow the way described above.

Tips for you

  • There are many steps to the gate, so if you don’t want to walk a lot, it is better that you ask the driver to stop at the hilltop parking
    Transportation
  • You need to bring good camera and tripod to capture the beautiful sights. Taking panoramic photos here is great idea.
    Photography
  • It is quite hot at the mid day, so you should bring umbrella and water
    Equipment
  • You don’t forget sun cream, cap, and sunglasses here, where you will easily get sun burn.
    Equipment
  • You should take your shoes off at door of the main temple
    Equipment
  • You should see it at night, when it is cooler and the incredible view of all the lights of the city
    Timming
  • Visiting this statue in the morning is also a great idea, before it gets hot and sunny
    Timming
  • In the afternoon, there are many tourists in this pagoda, so if you don’t like crowded, you can do that in the morning or evening
    Timming
  • Avoiding the rainy season if possible (from Sept to March ). The weather will be rain, foggy or hazy all day, so you definitely could not enjoy the beauty of this place completely.
    Timming
  • There are plenty of ice cream vendors there.
    Other
  • Right across the statue’s face, you can find a hidden balcony with nice panoramic view
    Other
  • You can not find the restroom there, because there is no clear instruction. Don’t worry, from the hilltop parking, you walk around 10m and turn right, go ahead about 50m, so you can see it.
    Other
  • Because this is a religious area, so wearing pants or trousers is better
    Other
  • They also offer incense if you want to explore the local religion culture. But as the pagoda noticed, 1 incense stick is enough for your worshiping.
    Other
  • When you visit the temple, it is very kind of you if you can turn off the flash function of your camera
    Other
  • Be careful with the route at the entrance, it is quite dangerous, and you must be skillful and concentrate on riding your bike
    Safety
  • Beside the statue, there are many nice bonsai trees and lotus ponds and other things that you need hours for visiting and taking photos.

Linh Ung Pagoda gives me a pleasant and peaceful welcome to a rainy summer afternoon, after to Danang City for my first-ever visit. But to me, this pagoda has something special and worthy of my visit. And i completed the process of burning incense, praying under the three big Buddha statues and donating money to the pagoda. And this pagoda has 18 statues of Arhat with all of the expressions of joy, anger, love and hate as they are great pieces carved meticulously by skillful artisans.
