    Da Nang

    "Very cool place. The complex has voluntary parking for motorbikes which is nice.A little crowded and it seems the tourists go over the top with feeding the monkeys (which you're not actually supposed to do).Of course the statue is awesome."
    Highlights: Ling Ying Temple is located on the Son Tra Peninsula in Da Nang. Lingying Temple enshrines the tallest white jade Guanyin Bodhisattva in Southeast Asia. On both sides of the temple are Arhats in different postures made of marble.

    Da Nang
    3.1km from downtown
    "The holy place of Gaotai religion in Hoi An, Vietnam, is located in a quiet community and is not easy to find. Gaotai religion is a native Vietnamese religion, decorated with religious characteristics, and the huge eyeball is the iconic "sacred eye", meaning that all religions have the same cause."
    Highlights: The Cao Dai religion is meant as a unification of the world's religions, including Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Taosim and Confuscianism. The Cao Dai Temple in Vietnam reflects this unification of beliefs and ideologies perfectly in its architecture. It incorporates symbolism and stylistic elements from all of the religions that it represents with absolutely breath-taking designs and ornamentation. Visitors are welcome to visit the temple and can witness one of several daily ceremonies full of brightly-robed monks, orchestras, choirs and chanting. Pictures of these beautiful sights are welcome as well.

    Pho Da Temple

    24 Reviews
    Da Nang
    631m from downtown
    "There was more time in Da Nang, so I went to this attraction that was not a scenic spot. There are very few people, and I don't feel that Nanputuo Temple in Xiamen is famous. Most of them come to visit the local area and need to drive there."
    Highlights: PhoDa Temple, built in 1923, is a very important Buddhist temple in Da Nang, with both Chinese and Western styles. Now there are many young monks studying and living here, and PhoDa Temple has gradually become a Buddhist university. There is an oval lake in the temple with a three-meter-high Guanyin statue and three bronze Buddha statues. It is also a gathering place for local people to carry out Buddhist activities.

    18 Reviews
    Da Nang
    1.3km from downtown
    "It is said that this temple was built in 1657, but after four or five years of construction, it underwent a large-scale reconstruction. The Liang said that it was the Anlong Ancient Temple of Yuan Gi, so it should be very old, but only found Vietnamese information, it should be built in 1657. Then in 1961 it was rebuilt as a great place to showcase Vietnamese Buddhist architecture."
