Buu Long Pagoda in Rainy Days

Located in Nguyen Xien Street, Long Binh Ward, District 9, about 20 kilometers from the center of Ho Chi Minh City, Buu Long Pagoda is ranked top impressive architecture.


The charm of Buu Long Pagoda is said to be powerful enough to “mesmerize” visitors right the first time they get there. Constructed in 1942, the temple was restored in 2007 and added more design of the Abbot named Thich Vien Minh. Interestingly the architecture of the pagoda is the same as those in Thailand, so many people call it Thai pagoda.


Entrance leading to the tower is embraced by shadows of the trees. Characterized by the purity and tranquility, the pagoda attracts a significant number of locals, visitors, pilgrims, followers, and worshippers annually. Stepping onto the pagoda, you definitely explore the sophisticated architecture of the pagoda that is the harmonious combination of Thai and Indian, and the ancient architecture of the Nguyen Dynasty.




To fully explore the temple from the upside down, you might climb up to the tower to hold panoramic views of the pagoda. It promises to satisfy your vision. Bear in mind, however, you need to get there before 5 p.m and dress neatly (shorts and skirts are not recommended).  In addition to greeting the stunning the surrounding scenery, you have a chance to hear melodious songs of wind chimes singing with the wind. The point is that you are listened to that amazing sound right you step onto the gate of the tower.




Significantly, the architecture of Buu Long pagoda features the ancient Buddhist culture, so it is undoubtedly an ideal place of worship for worshippers and ideal destination for those who do research on religious culture.
