Trip Info

Perfume Pagoda is famous not only for its scenic landscape but also for its sacredness in the religious culture of Vietnamese people. Unlike other spiritual sites, Perfume Pagoda possesses a good combination of temples, pagodas, moutains and forest; or in other words, a vast landscape complex with harmony of nature and artificial construction. Passing historical up and down over multiple centuries, the Pagoda has carved its image in the mind and the heart of Vietnamese people, who are looking for a peace in soul and put their belief in sacred Buddhism
