Giac Vien Pagoda

Although just down the road from Giac Lam, Giac Vien is hard to find, tucked way back off the main drag down a pot-holed road.

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

To find it, come out of Giac Lam and turn right onto Lac Long Quan St. Go straight on at the roundabout and the entrance is about 200m further down on the right. It seems that few tourists are visiting these days, as the pagoda gardens were only full of local children rather than digital cameras. The structure is quite similar to Giac Lam, with three main rooms including tombs, altars and Buddha statues.
