Originally established in the 17th century, Thien Mu Pagoda remains one of nation's oldest and best-preserved religious buildings. Situated on the Perfume River, the temple rises in seven tiers, each dedicated to human forms taken by Buddha during his road to Enlightenment. Upon your arrival, notice the wooden temple guardians with real human hair as beards near the entrance. Inside the compound, you can visit the monastic buildings, a large cemetery, and a beautifully maintained garden of pine trees.

Very picturesque temple nearly overlooking the Perfume river Walled landscaped gardens, Could be quite a peaceful place if there were no tourists (myself included). No entrance fee, no hawkers chasing you to buy things. A few very well presented young monks walking around adding some serene ambiance to the whole experience. An enjoyable trip by Dragon Boat along the Perfume river to visit.
Popular place with free entry. I felt that the serenity of the place was very much disrupted by the flocks of tourists coming by buses. If only we knew to be a little more considerate of the monks who spend their lives there :)
