Thien Mu Pagoda

Located6kmfar from the city on the north bank of thePerfumeRiver, Thien Mu Pagoda (namely Heaven Fairy Lady Pagoda) was erected in 1601 by Lord Nguyen Hoang, the ancestor of the Nguyen, on a used hilly brick foundation of a Cham building.

According to the legend, the people around this area used to see a vision of an old lady appearing on the hill where the pagoda now sits. Upon seeing people, she always said that someday a great leader would build a pagoda at this site to bring peace to the country. One day, when Lord Nguyen Hoang passed by this area, upon hearing the story, he ordered the construction of the pagoda in 1601. He named it Chua Thien Mu--Heavenly Lady Pagoda. Having gone through a lot of eventful phase, damages as well as renovations, today the pagoda still exists and remains the unofficial symbol of the ancient cityHue.

Coming to this prestigious sightseeing, visitors can enjoy both the scenery landscape and the typical traditional architecture ofHuepagodas. Due to its high position upward a charming curve ofPerfumeRiver, the pagoda offers a mind-boggling view of both the flow and the surrounding areas. The pagoda was the center of Buddhism in centralVietnam, now fragrant incense smoke fills the air there all day long, making the praying for blessings calm and peaceful.
