Points of Interest at Buu Long Pagoda

The two main attractions of this temple are the Pagoda itself, and the views of Saigon which get from the temple’s hill top location. The Pagoda has 4 levels. The top level contains Buddha relics and is considered an important temple by some Buddhists for this reason.

The design of the temple is also interesting, unlike many of the other temples in Vietnam which have been influenced by the architecture of China or the earlier architectural style of the Hindu worshipping Cham people, this temple has distinctive Thai features and bears a striking similarity to temples in Thailand such as Wat Traimitr which is in Bangkok near to Bangkok Train Station.

The Pagoda is surrounded by gardens, and beyond that forest and the large meandering Dong Nai River. The area around the temple is very flat which enhances the views. This is a beautiful temple in a peaceful and scenic location which is well worth making the effort to go and visit.
