Introducing the Thien Mu Pagoda

This iconic seven-story pagoda is regarded as the unofficial symbol of the former imperial city. Built in 1601, then later expanded and refurbished, the Thien Mu Pagoda is one of the oldest religious structures in Vietnam.

View a huge bell weighing 3285kg and a stone turtle with a stele on its back. Watch as monks go about their daily routines and note the blue, 1956 Austin saloon in which Thich Quang Duc was driven to his self-immolation in Saigon in 1963 when he protested against the Diem regime.

The pagoda sits on the banks of the Perfume River, surrounded by lush trees. At the rear of the temple complex sits a large graveyard.
