Thien Mu Pagoda Reviews
フエ市最古のお寺で、仏教徒の多いフエ市民に愛されたお寺です。清潔な園内には盆栽が飾ってあったり、日本のお寺とはやや趣きが異なっています。 more »It is the oldest temple in Hue City and loved by the buddhist citizens of Hue. Bonsai is decorated in a clean garden, and the taste is slightly different from the temple in Japan.
Up steep steps from the river, pretty pagoda with the car of former monk enjoy drove to Saigon and set himself alight to protest about poor treatment of Buddhists by government more »
Very picturesque temple nearly overlooking the Perfume river Walled landscaped gardens, Could be quite a peaceful place if there were no tourists (myself included). No entrance fee, no hawkers chasing you to buy things. A few very well presented young monks walking around adding some serene ambiance to the whole experience. An enjoyable trip by Dragon Boat along the Perfume river to visit.
Popular place with free entry. I felt that the serenity of the place was very much disrupted by the flocks of tourists coming by buses. If only we knew to be a little more considerate of the monks who spend their lives there :)
