1. Where is Linh Quy Phap An Pagoda?

Linh Quy Phap An Pagoda is located in the suburbs about more than 2 hours by car from Da Lat city. Located at hill 45, Loc Thanh commune, Bao Lam district, Lam Dong, Vietnam.

Besides, this is the intersection of Bao Loc and Di Linh districts, about 113 km from Da Lat city center in the direction of Highway 20. And about 230 km northeast of Ho Chi Minh City.

2. How is Linh Quy Phap An Pagoda unique?

More than 15 years ago, Linh Quy Mountain was just a pristine land, with very few people living and mainly growing tea and coffee. At that time, a shaman accidentally passed by this beautiful land and was impressed with the pure, charming scenery.

This trip was the opportunity for him to decide to become a monk. He chose Linh Quy mountain as the place to build the pagoda and named it Linh Quy Phap An. After more than a decade of renovation and improvement, the pagoda has become a beautiful landscape painting. Currently, Linh Quy Phap An Pagoda in Bao Loc is the place of worship for many monks in Lam Dong and neighboring provinces.

It can be said that, Linh Quy Phap An Pagoda is one of the most beautiful pagodas in Da Lat and receives the attention of many tourists. Located amidst natural scenery, majestic mountains and forests seem to add mystery and sacredness to this pilgrimage land.

3. When is the best time to visit Linh Quy Phap An Pagoda?

You can go to Linh Quy Phap An Pagoda any time of the year. However, to fully admire the beauty of the temple, you should come during the following 3 times:

  • January to March: Spring in Bao Loc is beautiful everywhere. Although the weather this season is still cold, there will be some warmth from the sun, creating a very pleasant feeling for you to explore the beautiful scenery at the pagoda as well as visit other places such as Tam Chau Bao Loc Tea Hill.
  • March to May: This is the Bao Loc rainy season but the rainfall is not much and not continuous. This time is extremely suitable for you to participate in outdoor tourism activities.
