A beautiful Buddhist temple and so peaceful and serene overlooking Tyen Lam Lake. In the words of our tour guide "You do not come here to laugh, joke or smile. You come here to enjoy yourself!"

You may walk through a lot of steps to reach the Monastery but after that, you will be amazed by the statues and feel peaceful in your mind.

Nice and quiet temple in a beautiful setting up in the mountains. Lots of flowers and don't forget to visit the lake through the forrest. Easily combined with the Dalat cable car.

We thought this was an interesting temple complex, different than the typical Vietnamese temples.
