It's a Buddhism Pagoda - like a temple, no entrance fee required, and you can get there easily by bus. Environment there is nice, calm and peace. View from the top is nice, and I was told by another friend that night view from the top is even better.

This is not very impressive, have you seen a pair, you have seen them all. The most impressive are if you go to the Budda on the top, there is a pretty good view of the city, There was a lot of noise from scremming children playing football, not what I have expected from a pagoda

Way too crowded and chaotic. It was like a market place with people all over the place. Really put a damper on our visit. Did not even want to walk up to the temple, needless to say up to the Big Buddha. All we wanted to do was just to leave this place.

Go past the pagoda up the stairs to visit the big white buddha sitting on a Lotusflower. Inside is also a really nice decorated alter worth a peek. Around the plateau where the buddha is sitting is some sort of graveyard, very interesting to see how the people honering their loved ones.

I visited the pagoda with my friends at lunch time. We had vegetarian food for lunch and then climbed up to visit the pagoda. There were hugely Buddha statues which were impressive. The atmosphere was spiritual and made us feel peaceful.

Great local attraction. While you are there, visit the big Buddha and read up on the monks who themselves on fire. There's a memorial there for them. Very picturesque!

Very spiritual place been many times on each visit to Nha Trang. Take plenty of water ( can buy drinks at the top) as it's a hike up many stairs and normally hot but worth the effort.
