About Marble Mountains
The Marble Mountains are a collection of five limestone peaks located seven kilometers from downtown Da Nang. The five karsts (known in Vietnamese as Ngu Hanh Son) are named after the five elements: Kim (metal), Thuy (water), Moc (wood), Hoa (fire), and Tho (stone) (earth). Marble Mountains have maintained particular significance for the people of Central Vietnam for millennia. The karsts were treasured as a sacred destination by the ancient Cham, and Vietnamese emperors from Hue and renowned generals passing through made visits to the peaks, adding to their treasury of tales.

Marble Mountains now include a network of caverns, tunnels, towers, and pagodas constructed by Mahayana Buddhists and Nguyen Dynasty Kings. The structures and shrines merge perfectly with nature: vine tendrils descend from the ceiling, frangipani and poinciana trees drop their petals on the stone walkways, and the intricate roofs of the pagodas dazzle in the tropical light. It’s a setting that quickly catches the eye.

TIP: Start your trip of the Marble Mountains around 7 a.m., when the air is cold enough for climbing and you’ll have the pathways and pagodas to yourself.

Linh Ung Son’s legend The Tra Pagoda

I’m not sure what the thuth is, but according to the folks that live in this neighborhood, they stated. During the time of King Minh Mang of the Nguyen Dynasty (19th century), a Buddha statue appeared out of nowhere on this sandy beach. Because the people perceived this as a positive sign, they banded together to create male worship.

Since that day, the entire region has been tranquil, as has the sea, and the residents of the fishing town have been sailing smoothly and happily for a long time. According to mythology, the sandy beach location is known as Bai But, which translates to “Buddha in the Middle of the World.” This is also where the Linh Ung pagoda stands today.

The construction and formation of the temple

The initial stone for this project was placed on June 19, 2004, according to the lunar calendar. The pagoda was formally opened on July 30, 2010, after more than 6 years of building. Because Venerable Thich Thien Nguyen began to rally Buddhists from all around and was granted land by the city’s officials. This is regarded as Da Nang’s new tourism architectural complex.

However, Pagoda is considered not only a work bearing the stamp of Vietnam’s Mahayana Buddhism in the twenty-first century, but also a point of confluence of resources from the earth, sky, and human hearts. The temple has remained standing over the years, hosting Buddhist events and serving as a tourist attraction for visitors from all over the world.
