Within easy walking distance from the Central Market Lin Son Pagoda is a peaceful assemblage of hillside gardens and lovely religious buildings. No tour buses. A very nice place to relax and wind down.

Vietnam is not about what you can see, it´s about what you try to find behind teh obvious. This is a quiet retreat despite being in the middle of Dalat. The grounds around back are lovely and well worth visitng. Free entrance.

Area is quiet. Stunding view next to Elephants Fall. The music, budha's smell if the rain on the leaves and flowers just a very tranquile environment. Loved it

This small temple is a little neglected, but still quite beautiful. When we visited, there were no other tourists and only one local, so it is a peaceful place to sit for a while. It is easy to walk to from the market area... around 10 minutes.

This is not a major tourist hotspot. As a result this is a great location to meditate. The architecture is nice, but simple. This is not a temple I'd recommend just as a tourist destination, but if your looking for a nice alternative for a place to find peace. This is a good option.

This is one of those pagodas that are a must see, but that you can see in 20 minutes. Really beautiful, and if you are into meditation you can use their main meditation hall for free. Monks walk around the pagoda, and its usually not very crowded with tourists.

Beautiful pagoda to visit, it is where the locals go to worship. Not a touristy pagoda. It was welcoming with stunning architect and some fabulous bonsai lovingly tended by the monks. This was my second visit and it is wonderful to go and imbibe the calmness and spirituality of the place by sitting for a few minutes in the pagoda... More

Despite of its simplicity, other aspects of its as historical and elegant make it one of the main holy and pictureque sight of Dalat. Worth to visit if you are a Buddhist or just simply a religious architecture lover. It's one among 4 well-known holiest pagodas in Dalat, including Linh Son, Linh Phuoc, Linh Phong and Thien Vuong Co Sat.

This little pagoda is located not too far from our hotel; therefore it was easy to visit. Upon arrival, we were greeted by… a beggar who asked for money. This was the first time we saw a beggar in Vietnam. The territory of the temple was nice, interesting architecture, but the territory and the buildings are not well maintained. We... More
