Linh Ung Pagoda, Danang

Vietnam AttractionsDanang CityDanang AttractionsLinh Ung Pagoda
Linh Ung Pagoda - Bai But, located at the Son Tra Peninsula, is one of the biggest, newest and the most attractive of the three pagodas with the same name in Danang.

According to the local story, in the 19th century, the local people living on the peninsula saw a Buddhist statue drifting downstream to the beach. Considered to be a good omen, they built a small pagoda to worship the statue. The embankment where the statue went aground was then named “Bai But”, meaning “Buddha’s sanctuary on earth”. This is also the location of Linh Ung Pagoda nowadays.

The pagoda features a perfect harmony of modern and traditional architectures of a Vietnamese pagoda, especially in the three-entrance gate, the main chamber and the ancestors’ house. Situated on an area of about 20 hectares on the side of Son Tra Peninsula, this pagoda is a magnificent artwork. There is the highest Quan Yin statue (67m) in Vietnam which leans on the mountain and looks toward the sea. You can see this statue from every corner of Danang city.

With its unique architecture and mountain landscape, Linh Ung pagoda has become a popular place for worshipping, living and practicing of monks and Buddhists as well as a spiritual tourist attraction in Danang. It is located about 10km from the city center of Danang, so you hire a motorbike or take a taxi to reach there. This is a must-see place on the way to Son Tra Peninsula.
