According to Buddhist beliefs, these 3 temples create a solid tripod to help protect the city’s peace and the people’s lives.

A story I heard from city people is that since the inauguration of the 3rd Linh Ung pagoda at the top of Son Tra mountain, most of the big and small storms have avoided the city, or if they entered, they have weakened a lot. much.

Besides, people’s life is also more peaceful, the city is growing. Therefore, in Da Nang, everyone believes in the sacredness of these three temples. Now let’s explore the beauty of all three temples.

Review of 3 famous Linh Ung pagodas in Da Nang

1/ Linh Ung Son Tra Pagoda – The most beautiful temple


This sacred temple is located right on the top of the mountain near Son Tra Da Nang, because it is near the bud beach, it is often called by another name, Linh Ung Bai But pagoda, located about 10km from My Khe beach Da Nang.

Linh Ung Son Tra Pagoda is the largest temple in Da Nang. The architecture of this temple is very nicely designed in combination with the endowed natural beauty, so this place has become a new tourist destination attracting many tourists every time they come to Da Nang.

The temple was inaugurated the latest, but it is the one with the widest campus, the most beautiful scenery and the most visited in Da Nang today.

The highlight is the statue of Guanyin Bodhisattva standing 67m high facing the sea. Because standing on a rather high position, you will see this statue from a very far distance.

Inside the statue are stairs, you can climb up to enjoy the view, but for safety, visitors can’t go up now, only the maintenance department can go up.

At night, this statue is illuminated by hundreds of lights with different colors, making the image of the statue even more shimmering and mysterious.

The space inside the pagoda is quite large, so it is decorated with many different bonsai and Buddha statues. The temple campus has a lot of old trees with very large canopy, moreover the temple is surrounded by dense primeval forest, so the air is always fresh and cool, suitable for walking and sightseeing.

You will not be difficult to see the image of monkeys running and playing in the trees, sometimes swooping down to beg for food very naturally. You can also take pictures with them, but don’t push them away or tease them.

The gate of the temple is designed in an ancient architecture with 2 beautiful floors, a main door and 2 side doors on both sides, and above there is a Buddha statue representing the god of the temple gate. This is probably the point that many people take pictures when traveling to Linh Ung Pagoda in Da Nang .

Inside you will see statues of 18 Arhats, 4 gods of Long Protector and many other gods. A special feature I really like when visiting this temple is that you can see the vast sea and the small city from a few hundred meters high.

Of course, the viewing angle will not be as wide as on the top of the chessboard, but this is indeed a very chill viewing spot.
You can see both My Khe beach and Non Nuoc beach with white sand stretching endlessly, at the foot of the mountain are very beautiful stacked cliffs, combined with the sound of waves crashing to make the landscape. This place becomes even more special.

When visiting Linh Ung Son Tra Pagoda, you will feel like you are lost in a fairyland.

Ticket price to visit the temple is free (parking fee depends on Hy). Behind the temple, the car park has a souvenir shop, you can stop by to choose your favorite gifts.

Note : Around the temple is a forest with many wild animals living, especially monkeys and langurs. You can easily catch mischievous monkeys, but you should pay attention to bombarding and provoking the main anger.

If you can arrange it, you should visit the temple early in the morning to enjoy the sunrise on the sea or in the late afternoon, because the sun is quite hot here at noon, you can still shelter from the sun in the trees, but that’s sometimes the case. uncomfortable times.

You can visit Linh Ung Son Tra Da Nang pagoda at any time, it is beautiful, but avoid rainy or stormy days because the road going up the pass can be dangerous for you. Please dress modestly when entering the temple.

Linh Ung Ngu Hanh Son Pagoda is located on Thuy Son mountain in the famous Ngu Hanh Son scenic complex in Da Nang.

This is the oldest Linh Ung pagoda in Da Nang, built in the reign of Minh Mang around 1825.

Because it was built for a long time, the architecture is very unique, especially the motifs are sculpted from pieces of crockery that are put together very meticulously.

Although it does not have a spacious and beautiful campus like Linh Ung Son Tra Pagoda, this is the oldest temple and is also believed to be the most sacred temple in Da Nang.

In the temple, there is a large sitting Buddha and a statue of Guanyin but not too prominent. If you have the opportunity to visit the Marble Mountains, do not forget to stop by to offer incense at this ancient temple.

3/ Linh Ung Pagoda Ba Na Hills – The tallest pagoda


This temple is located in the area of ​​Ba Na Hills tourist area . Although not as large as the temple in Son Tra Peninsula, the scenery here is certainly not inferior, due to the elaborate investment and beauty inherited from Ba Na Hills.

Located at an altitude of 1500m above sea level, the highlight of this temple is a 27m high, 14m wide sitting Buddha statue sitting on a 6m high lotus platform facing Da Nang city.

It can be seen that this is the temple located in the highest position among the 3 Linh Ung pagodas in Da Nang . To visit the temple, you need to buy tickets to Ba Na cable car .

Normally, people often combine Ba Na Hills tourism and visit Linh Ung Pagoda on this one, but do not plan to go separately.
