The highlight is the 67 metre high statue of the Goddess of Mercy (bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara) where it’s possible to go inside to view more Buddhist sculpture.

  • Rented a bike and went there. There is quite a bit of climbing so be sure to have the gears. The whole temple up top and grey pagoda are amazing really nice views from the top. But the best view is from side of the road just before you turn left towards the temple. Should really clear the area around the statue to make some really nice views of Da nang.
  • It is very special when Da Nang owns 3 temples with the same name Linh Ung. But the most famous and mentioned by many people is probably Linh Ung pagoda in Son Tra peninsula - the largest temple in Da Nang in terms of both scale and artistic architecture. Legend of Linh Ung Son Tra Pagoda I don't know what the truth is, but according to the words of the people living in this area, they said. In the reign of King Minh Mang under the Nguyen Dynasty (19th century), a Buddha image drifted to this sand beach from nowhere. The people saw this as a good omen, so they together established a male worship. At first, people set up a temple to worship at Bai But to worship Buddha images, so it was called Linh Ung Bai But pagoda. Also from this day, the whole area is always calm and the sea is calm, the people of the fishing village also sail smoothly, doing business peacefully for a long time. From this legend, the sandy beach area is called Bai But - which means Buddha land in the middle of the world.
