At Da Nang, there’s an iconic statue that’s impossible to ignore. Locals call it “The Lady Buddha” -- a towering, 72-metre tall attraction that acts like a sentinel to the whole city.
Apart from being beautiful, Lady Buddha is a Da Nang landmark you could never miss — she’s not only 72-metres tall, she’s also made of a white marble material that glistens during the day. This statue — which is dedicated to the goddess of compassion and protector of sailors — can be seen from all over Da Nang, and neighbouring towns. Don’t just settle with taking photos with it — you can actually enter the statue and explore the 17 floors inside.
Lady Buddha is located at Linh Ung Pagoda, Son Tra Peninsula, Danang.
