Perfume Pagoda

Posted By : admin/ 46 0

Nestled in forested limestone cliffs, and overlooking the Suoi Yen River, Perfume Pagoda is arguably one of Vietnam’s most spec tacular sights. Located on Nui Huong Tich or Fragrant Vestige Mountain, the pagoda is actually a complex of around 30 Buddhist shrines. The most fascina ting of these is the Huong Tich Pagoda, which is set in a deep cavern in the mountainside, and is dedicated to Quan Am, the Goddess of Mercy. Each year, during the Perfume Pagoda Festi val, thousands of Buddhists embark on a pilgrimage up the mountain, praying for absolu tion, good health, and, in the case of childless couples, a baby.
