Linh Son Pagoda
Linh Son Pagoda, an attraction standing proud and strong on top of a small hill located northwest of the town centre, is fully aware of the meaning of its creation -- a spiritual lighthouse for the people of Da Lat.
Run by Buddhist monks, it serves as a place of worship and contemplation for those who belong to Buddhism — obvious to the observing eyes of the beholder are the red tiled roofs and a pair of dragons in two gables reflective of Chinese influence. Linh Son Pagoda is unassuming in architectural structure, yet it is vital in its purpose. It serves as the home of the Buddhist Management Board in Lamdong and it also houses a Buddhist School. Within the confines of Linh Son is a 450kg bell that serves as tourists’ favourite and flowers of various sizes, colors, and species that evoke a pleasant feeling to those who seek communion with nature.
Linh Son Pagoda is located in Da Lat, Vietnam, 700 metres northwest from the town centre.
