"Hands down the most beautiful and well kept pagoda I've been to. Naturally being near Da Lat means the flowers and Bonsai covering the grounds are masterfully arranged and diverse. It's a working monastery so you'll see monks anxiously engaged in good works all over the place. The lake below is beautiful. "

"There are nicer pagodas around but this is sorrounded by nature and it's also historical place. Little bit crowded but ok."

"Nice temple with monks living here and working on the garden. There were many tourists when we visited even though it was low season. I'd definitely recommend to visit this place with the cable car as opposed to car or bus. The view from there was beautiful."

"Nice gardens and pretty temples. Too many tourists on the weekends though, beware! Cable car here is cool though. "
