Sung Hung Pagoda

Phu Quoc Island Attractions

Sung Hung Pagoda is a combination of two shrines that were built in the early 10th century, making it the oldest of its kind on Phu Quoc Island. Set along Tran Hung Dao Street in Duong Dong Town, the pagoda was formerly Sung Nghia and Hung Nhan Pagodas which were built in the early 20th century for locals to pray for the departed before it was merged and renamed as Sung Hung Pagoda.

Sung Hung Pagoda has undergone two major restorations but most of its original architecture remains intact throughout the years. Exuding a peaceful ambience for devotees and tourists alike, the front courtyard features plenty of Bodhi trees, a statue of the Goddess of Mercy standing in the middle of a lotus pond, and a sanctum house housing a bronze bell, numerous sculptures and red lacquered boards with engraved writings.
 
The main prayer hall stands at three storeys in height, housing three Buddha statues (Amitabha, Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva and Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva) and intricate paintings of Buddhist mythical creatures and legends. Open daily, entrance to Sung Hung Pagoda is free of charge. Visitors are advised to dress conservatively out of respect for the monks and locals who frequent Sung Hung Pagoda.
