Buu Phong Temple

Published:  03:40 Saturday - July 07, 2012 Buu Phong Temple located on Buu Long mountain in Binh Dien, Tan Buu, about 4 km from the city of Bien Hoa is a historic 17th century Buddhist temple in Dong Nai Province in southern Vietnam.

 

There are 100 steps up the side of the hill from the road to the entrance of the temple. At the entrance is a large arched triple gate. At the front of the temple, there are inscriptions of verses on the wall. In front of the temple is a statue of Avalokiteshvara bodhisattva, erected in 1963.

Inside the highly decorated main hall is a historic statue of Amitabha Buddha. There is also a stupa behind the main hall where a sample of the relics of Gautama Buddha are enshrined.

Today, Bửu Long mountain has become an important tourist and historical attraction of Dong Nai Province. In the surrounding area, there are further stupas and statues which depict three key moments in the life of Gautama Buddha: his birth as Prince Siddhartha at Lumbini, his enlightenment under the bodhi tree at Bodh Gaya and the entering into nirvana at Kusinara.

Visitors in Vietnam tourism are warmly welcomed at the Buu PhongTemple and may watch ceremonies and take photos from the galleries. But tourists are only asked to wear trousers or skirts covering the knee, remove their shoes before entering, and remain as quiet as possible during ceremonies.
