Since the reign of King Minh Mang of the Nguyen Dynasty in Vietnam, one early morning, fishermen in the coastal area here discovered a Buddha statue rising from the sand. The fishermen brought water back and set up a shrine to worship. And then this area was named Bai But (Buddha). Since then, Bai But has always had calm seas and fishermen in the fishing village doing business safely.

There is another story about the origin of this name, which is from ancient times, before the construction of Linh Ung Pagoda in Da Nang.
