A wonderful sight from the river.

We approached the Pagoda from our Dragon boat on a river cruise. There are views as you near the site and also wonderful views when you climb the steps. These are not difficult to... read more

The Pagoda is quite nice but actually not a place you have to see in Hué. It is not far away from the Citadel so have a short look there on your way to the tombs...

We approached the Pagoda from our Dragon boat on a river cruise. There are views as you near the site and also wonderful views when you climb the steps. These are not difficult to climb, go for it! We spent a while looking at all the Dragon boats on the river from our vantage point. The Pagoda is in a... More

Read up on the history before you visit, or while you are there. A local guide can provide so much information to add to the experience of the visit. Top Tip...right opposite, on the road outside, you will find dragon boat waterbuses and taxis. It adds to your adventure if you travel on to the dragon bridge, and photographs from... More

My impression of the temple first name "Thiên Mụ" I didn't understand that's name but know which is the name of a Lady and heard very sacred temple. Come here I see a romantic scene, the temple is located right next to a large river with cold weather, little rain has caused the temple to become poetic. A lot of... More

This attraction was a nice surprise after a short boat cruise down the river. Plenty to see, wonderful architecture and variety of buildings and gardens to make your imagination run wild. This attraction should have an entry fee to help with maintenance. It would be worth it to see it become an improved attraction!

A quick visit compared to the citadel. Relaxing and beautiful environment. Has Quang Duc's car in which he drove to the site of his self-immolation in Saigon.

I may have just picked a good day (despite it raining), but there were relatively few people here when I visited Thien Mu Pagoda. I found it a supremely calming location as I strolled through the beautiful gardens and witnessed the monks going about their daily business and praying in the temple.

Actually nothing much at Thien Mu Pagoda, quite run down as well. However, there is 1 interesting piece of history at the backyard, where they showcased the monk who burnt himself and the private car that ferried him.
