Thien Vien Truc Lam, Da Lat

#2 of 10 in Historic Sites in Da Lat
Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Explore a peaceful compound near Tuyền Lăm Lake at Thien Vien Truc Lam, which practices the teachings of Zen Buddhism. As you approach the holy site, notice the prominent bell tower and the pagoda's tiled roofs as they contrast the surrounding pine forest. You can access the temple either directly via 61 steps, or go past the lake and climb 222 steps to the main courtyard through the triple-gated entrance. The public area located on a spacious plateau overlooks Benhuit Mountain and contains a ceremonial hall with a lotus-seated Gautama Buddha statue, flanked by guest facilities and a rose garden on the left and a bell tower on the right. The domestic area for monks and nuns remains closed to the public. Plan my trip to Da Lat with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
