Linh Ung Pagoda

Set deep within the tropical forest on the Son Tra Peninsula, you will find Da Nang’s largest and most impressive pagoda.

Stroll around the open courtyard to view carved marble figures, lush fauna and the towering Goddess of Mercy statue at the Linh Ung Pagoda. Discover the monks’ houses in the pretty gardens and climb to the viewing platform for spectacular coastal scenery.

Positioned among the flowing green hills of Thuy Son Mountain, the Linh Ung Pagoda was originally built in the 18th century during the reign of Emperor Minh Mang. Many consider it one of Vietnam’s finest religious structures. Stroll through its 30-acre (12-hectare) grounds containing beautiful marble carvings, colorful monks’ quarters and the iconic Goddess of Mercy Statue.

Climb the steps toward the large three-door entrance gate. Notice small statuettes lining both sides of the stone courtyard. These traditional Arhats were carved by some of the region’s best artisans. Look closely to observe that each one has a unique facial expression.

Don’t miss the main chamber and monks’ houses that lie beyond the courtyard. These buildings have bright green roofs and are filled with more statues and colorful paintings of Buddha. As you wander around, you may encounter the resident monks who will be happy to talk with you and point out different aspects around the grounds.

From here, go to the right of the pagoda to see the immense Goddess of Mercy. Standing on a lotus-shaped platform and looking down on the ocean, this towering 220-foot (67-meter) statue is said to protect the local fisherman from storms. Admire the statue from the ground and then venture inside and ascend the stairs to discover 17 different levels. Each level inside the statue houses 21 different statues of Buddha.

Enjoy some good views by peering out of the sides of the statue. For the best panoramas, move to the viewing platform just outside. Gaze out onto Da Nang beach and toward the horizon to spot the Chan Islands a few miles offshore. The imposing Marble Mountains inland provide shade from the late afternoon sun.

Linh Ung Pagoda is about 9 miles (14 kilometers) east of Da Nang city center. It is open every day and has no admission charge.
