"Vietnam's Most Elaborate Pagoda"

Few landmarks are as intricately ornamented as the Linh Phuoc Pagoda. A crowned jewel of Da Lat, nearly the entire structure is inlaid with glass, porcelain, and shards of terracotta. Even the site's famed dragon statue, measuring 49 meters (160 feet), is carefully mosaicked with fragments from over 50,000 broken bottles. Burrowed in the country's Central Highlands, the pagoda also houses hundreds of statues and carvings celebrating Buddha and his beliefs. Wreathed in a strong sense of religion, here is where visitors participate in a prayer by writing down a wish, sticking it to the large bell on the pagoda's first floor, and chiming the bell three times. Replete with vibrant artifacts, traditional roofing, a dragon-shaped stairway, the pagoda shelters an inner hall, a serene main sanctuary and a benevolent Buddha statue, which is in parts, gilded, and in parts, built in concrete.
