The Lin Son Pagoda, located on a hill about a kilometer from the city of Dalat, was erected with donations from Buddhists from all over the world. Construction of the pagoda began in 1936 and finished in 1940.
In the first courtyard there is a statue of Avalokiteshvara, standing on a throne made in the form of a lotus, miniature bonsai trees, and a three-story tower. There is also a small pond inhabited by goldfish.
The pagoda was built in an East Asian style, as can be seen in the two-level roof and dragons crowning it. A narrow path leads to the sanctuary, along which you can also observe dragons with open mouths.
The main altar of the pagoda is decorated with a statue of Buddha Shakyamuni, who sits on a lotus throne in deep meditation. This bronze statue was cast in 1952.
