Perfume Pagoda Tour

Perfume Pagoda Tour

Suoi Yen (Yen Stream) – the beautiful and memorable way to Huong Pagoda

Being annoyed by the noise of Hanoi, air pollution from dense traffic and the stresses and the strains of busy city life, travellers should move out of the town in order to discover the amazing country in a big contrast.

Perfume pagoda is worthy in deed. Not only will you enjoy the beautiful landscape in peace, but you will have great opportunities to enhance your knowledge about our culture and national religion as well. The Vietnamese, in general, are spiritual, and besides the native beliefs, the major religion is Buddhism which entered this country nearly 18 centuries ago. At present, over 70 percent of the population of Vietnam are either Buddhist or strongly influenced by Buddhist practices. Perfume pagoda is actually a large complex of temples and shrines spreading out all over a green mountain range. The heart of the whole area is a big cave on the top of a limestone mountain, which has a sanctuary inside and is called Perfume pagoda after an amazing myth about Buddha’s miracle.

This unique temple also has the longest festival lasting 03 months (From Jan to April), and the locals consider the site their Holy Place, as Jerusalem or Mecca, where they come to pray for all the best and refresh their souls in peace and sacredness
