Why Thien Vuong Pagoda is special ?

Tu Bi Shrine (the shrine of Mercy) is the main hall of the whole pagoda decorated with a 3-meter statue of Buddha Maitreya of very sophisticated red lacquer and gold trim. Placed next this statue are another 0.5-meter-in-height statue of Buddha Sakyamuni together with 4 huge statues of the Four Great Heavenly Kings in the two sides of the shrine.

There is also a magic turning table in the shrine which attracts millions of tourists' curiosity. Visitors only need to put a hand on the table and order "turning left", "turning right" or "hurry up", the table will move exactly as what it was told.

Indeed, the table was made of a special wood (in Binh Dinh province) with great capacitance. That's why, when tourists put a hand on it, the electromagnetic field acts on the rotation of the table. Moreover, the table was especially designed with its separate surface and legs, which makes the legs stand still while the surface rotates. Anyhow, the turning table has been a very interesting affair to tourists and Buddhists coming to visit and worship at the pagoda.

After touring the main shrine, travelers will pass off the temple yard to Minh Quang Shrine (the shrine of Light) worshiping the Three Saints of the West, including Bodhisattva Guanyin, Buddha Amitabha and Bodhisattva Mahasthamaprapta. These are the extremely valuable statues of fragrant wood of 4 meters in height and 1.5 tons in weight that Monk Tho Da brought from Hong Kong in 1958.
