Linh Phuoc Pagoda is the finest piece of architecture to behold in Dalat. Located at 120 Tu Phuoc Street, Linh Phuoc boasts a grand, beautiful and eye-catching appearance. Completed in 1952, a dragon statue made of 12000 bottles of bear is the most unique feature of this pagoda, also the reason for its other name – Ve Chai Pagoda.
Take your time walking around the temple and climbing up the pagoda stairs in order to appreciate the fine details of the tile work. Once you come inside, you’ll be amazed by the huge golden Guanyin statue. The chedi inside the pagoda’s courtyard can be seen even from afar. You can write wishes on small yellow pieces of paper, stick them to the bell, and chime the bell three times to send their prayers to Buddha – a sacred experience. What might be the heaviest bell in Vietnam, it weighs in at an impressive 8,500 kg. Beside the bell tower stands an 18-metre-high golden statue of Bodhisattva, which is decorated with over 600,000 flowers.
