This is a great place for people who enjoy the peaceful time, away from nosiness. The pagoda is huge and has the typical structure of mix chinese, vietnamese and french architecture. Do not buy food from outside the place

Truc Lam is one of the biggest Zen Meditation centre in the south, really tranquil place for taking pictures and sacred to pray for someone believe on Buddhism.

When you walked into this place, all you could see is beautiful tropical flowers, bonsai, statues. The serenity is an absolute treat for anyone who needs to unwind and find a quiet place to meditate. A must see at least once in your lifetime.

We took the 4km cable car ride from Dalat to the pagoda. It is truly a wonderful place to visit. I have taken the cable car several times to just go and sit under the trees and read. Such a peaceful setting.

Both of us have strong belief in Buddhist's phylosophy. During the time in Dalat, we visited Truc Lam meditation. It's an awesome place to learn and go deeply to understand about buddism. This one is must see in Dalat

It's at the very top of Dong Da Street. Also, the cable cars stop between 11.30-1.30 each day for their lunch break. So be prepared to spend a couple of hours there, which is easy to do anyway.
