The Linh Ung Pagoda. Da Nang.

The Linh Ung pagoda is situated on the Son Tra Peninsula, and it is one of Da Nang’s most-visited attractions. It is located on a turtle-shaped hill overlooking the sea, and behind it lies an immense primitive forest which is home to many kinds of plants and animals. The construction of this pagoda has marked the significant development of Vietnamese Buddhism in the 21st century. The pagoda is a special place linking Heaven and Earth. During the anti-American war, the Buddha statue and temple were almost totally destroyed. The construction of the pagoda started in 2004 and was completed 6 years later. Visitors can spend some time admiring the 18 statues of Arhat, with all of the expressions of joy, anger, love and hate. Carved meticulously by skilful artisans. The Goddess of Mercy statue at 67m, it is the tallest in Viet Nam and its height is equal to that of a 30-storey building. Inside this statue, there are 17 floors, each housing 21 tiny Buddha statues with different shapes and facial expressions. Local people say that the Goddess of Mercy statue, which faces the sea, takes care of local fishermen and gives them the strength to deal with storms and high waves.
Mountain of God. Ba Na Mountain.
The Guanyin Statue in Linh Ung Pagoda's countryard is the highest one in Viet Nam to date at 67m in height and 35m in diameter at its base, which is as high as a 30-story building

Previously occupied by both the French and the Americans, Da Nang marks the halfway point between the capital in the north, Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City in the south. It’s the fourth largest city in Vietnam. Apart from some shopping highlights and historical sights, the main reason for most travellers staying here is its proximity to the well-known China Beach, Lang Co Beach, Hoi An and My Son.

Built on a site of 12 hectares on the Son Tra Peninsula, the Lin Ung Son Tra Pagoda is the largest in Da Nang in terms of scale and artistic architecture. The pagoda is famous for its beautiful 67-metre-tall Goddess of Mercy statue standing on a lotus-shaped platform.
