Phap Lam Pagoda is a two storey temple located near the city center on Ong Ich Khiem Street, just five minutes walk from Con Market. The pagoda, built in 1934 and formerly known as Tinh Hoi Pagoda, is surrounded by large trees. The peaceful courtyard contains manicured gardens lined with Buddhist sculptures.
The top floor of the pagoda is a presbytery containing beautiful carved pillars, Buddhist Pali texts and a gold Buddha statue. On the ground floor there is an amphitheatre that can be found full of worshippers during traditional festivals such as the Tet holiday and Lunar New Year.
In the courtyard sits a 1.1 meter high Buddha and brass statues of the Goddess of Mercy (Avalokitecvara) and Dai The Chi Bodhisattva. Watch locals praying in the morning or getting fortunes told as monks go about their business. The neighborhood surrounding the pagoda is a great place to eat vegetarian food as local restaurants and food carts cater to the pagoda’s monks and worshipers.
