What we say: 3 stars

Since the pagoda was founded in 1948, it has been the training ground for thousands of Buddhist monks and nuns as well as teachers of Dharma.

The temple gained some notoriety during the war for being the home of Thich Tri Quang, a monk who led protests during the 1960s against the South Vietnamese government, championing freedom of expression and religion.

After being placed under house arrest and later solitary confinement by the conquering North he was released and is rumoured to still be living in the pagoda.
