Linh Phuoc Pagoda

Da Lat Attractions

Linh Phuoc Pagoda is a beautiful Buddhist shrine in Da Lat, every surface of which is covered in stunning mosaics. Completed in 1952, the pagoda is often referred to as the pagoda of broken glass due to the 49-metre-long dragon’s head at the entrance gate, which was meticulously pieced together from 12,000 glass bottles. The main hall consists of two rows of cobblestone mosaics and there are also many intricate mosaic bas-reliefs featuring the histories of the Lotus Sutras and of Shakyamuni.

The walls, ceilings and structures of mythical creatures are all inlaid with thousands upon thousands of small pieces of broken terracotta, porcelain, and glass. In front of Linh Phuoc Pagoda stands a 37-metre-high bell tower that’s considered to be the highest in Da Lat.

Linh Phuoc Pagoda Highlight

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.

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 inside, visitors 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.

Linh Phuoc Pagoda is located in the central highlands just outside of Da Lat. To get to the pagoda, take a 25-minute train journey from Dalat Railway Station to Trai Mat Village. Return tickets cost VND 135,000 per person.
