This is still actively used with monks living here. It doesn't have the impressive structure of the Thien My pagoda or the gardens of the tombs, it is far more humble. There are a significant number of stupas around, the area is less structured and...More

This is a really beautiful, really peaceful place. It is worth taking a bit of time to look around here, and also have someone explain a little bit about its history. Well worth a visit.

A bit outside Hue but worth the drive out. A lovely peaceful place with few other tourists. Very relaxing to wander around.

Lovely setting and very peaceful. This is a Buddhist monastery that is well worth a visit. There is more to the site than just a pagoda. It has well kept garden areas. Lovely.

As a practitioner in the Plum Village tradition, it was very exciting for me to visit this pagoda where Thich Naht Hanh ordained, and I believe remains abbot in name. As I have done retreats at Thai Plum Village, I have met many of the...More

Just walking around the lakes is pleasurable and calming. Very few people about save a few ladies selling fans or incense sticks at the entrance. As the pagoda is still home to some monks you will see evidence of their worship around you and in...More
