Located on the top of Phuong Hoang hill, Truc Lam Pagoda matches perfectly with the charming city. You have two options to get there. By the first way, you have to climb 222 steps past the triple gated entrance to enter the main courtyard after crossing Tuyen Lam lake. The other way is a direct entrance to the temple with 3km long soaring over majestic pine forests. The cable cars are available. No matter which way you choose, you will be strongly impressed by stunning beautiful landscapes on the way.
Surrounded by splendid gardens, the pagoda features elegant architecture. Inside of the Central Sanctum, there is Shakya Buddha statue. The exterior is a solemn tower, where a great bell is hung.
From the monastery, you can walk down to the shore of Tuyen Lam lake where cafes and boats for hire are available.
