Linh Phuoc Pagoda

Linh Phuoc Pagoda is a unique Buddhist shrine thanks to spectacular mosaics covering every surface, including a 49 meters long dragon’s head made of 12 thousand glass bottles, right in front of the gate. The 49-meter long dragon is a reason why the temple is also called a Pagoda of Broken Glass. Completed in 1952 and situated just outside of Dalat, this unique pagoda features tile walls, ceilings, and structures of mythological creatures made of terracotta, porcelain, and glass. The pagoda is seen as incredibly kitsch for some; others admire its distinctiveness.

There’s also a 37-meter-high bell tower standing in front of the pagoda with an impressive 8.5 tonne bell, considered the heaviest in Vietnam. Another attraction is an 18-meter-high golden statue of Bodhisattva, ornamented with over 600,000 flowers. You can get there by taking a famous cog railway train from Dalat, which is an attraction in its own right.
