Dieu De Pagoda Hue Reviews
Nationally iconic Mar 11, 2010
Named after the four noble truths of Buddhism, Dieu De Pagoda is a wonderful temple to visit in the heart of Hue. It received a great honour in the nineteenth century, when the reigning Emperor from the Nguyen dynasty declared it to be one of the country’s national pagodas. More recently, the pagoda has been the setting for various political activities. For instance, the Buddhist riots which took place in the 1960s reached a climax here, and there was considerable conflict between the rioters and the government’s troops.
Beneath the religious and political background, Dieu De Pagoda is a wonderful building just to stare at. Located near water, the reflection is excellent. The building also has these wonderful four towers and a bell on one of them. The central part of the pagoda houses a statue of Buddha.
If pagodas are your thing, do visit this one and see for yourself why it was given national significance!
