Long Son Pagoda

Long Son Pagoda, also well known as White Buddha Temple (Behind the pagoda is a huge white Buddha seated on a lotus blossom) is one of the most beautiful pagoda with an impressive construction in Nha Trang, founded in 19th century. 

 

The pagoda was first built on Trai Thuy Moutain in 1886 and named Dang Long Pagoda. In 1990, however, it was damaged in a storm and then being rebuilt down the mountain to its present location on Thai Nguyen Street. During a severe storm in 1900, the pagoda was badly damaged, and after the restoration of the temple, he was moved to the foot of the mountain, where it stands to this day.

The temple grounds also includes a garden. The entrance and roofs are decorated with dragon mosaics which are built from glass and ceramic tiles. The main ceremonial hall is adorned with modern interpretations of classical motifs. The nasal hairs of the dragons are wrapped around the pillars on either side of the main altar.
