Another great pagoda with histories, nice views, and meaningful building. Make sure u ask your kids to touch the head of the turtle. After the visit, can head down to the river and take a boat for river cruise.

This pagoda was the old gateway to the city and has been damaged many times and rebuilt over the years--it looks brand new it sits next to a beautiful lake in the city which is the site for many festivals
