This real-time streaming Online Experience will take you to Da Nang, Vietnam's fourth-largest city located on the west coast. One of the prominent attractions in Da Nang is Linh Ung Pagoda, which is situated on Son Tra Mountain (also known as Monkey Mountain).
During the tour, we will stroll around the open courtyard of the pagoda built 20 years ago, and which has a 67 metre-tall white statue of the Goddess of Mercy or Lady Buddha, set atop a lotus-shaped platform. Hailed as the tallest statue of the deity in Southeast Asia, there are 17 levels within the structure and 21 miniature Buddha sculptures. The complex of Linh Ung Pagoda is 20 hectares, including a monastery, relics tower, 18 Buddha's student statues, a bonsai garden, 3 entrance gates, a library, a green forest with long tail monkeys.
Monkey Mountain or Son Tra Peninsula is a breath-taking national park in Da Nang that stands 693 metres above sea level. It’s a 20-minute drive from the City Center, making it a popular retreat amongst locals and travellers looking to escape the heat and busy traffic of the city. The verdant mountain is also surrounded by pristine beaches and a huge fishing shore.
Join me on this virtual tour and offer your prayers in the main shrine by the Happy Buddha, or Buddha of the past, the presence and future, then admire the wisdom and calm from the face of the top Lady Buddha, which is also believed as the Lighthouse for fishers.
