Eccentric Zen artist and poet Thay Vien Thuc is the main attraction at this popular pagoda; part monk and part sideshow, he creates personal on-the-spot paintings for any visitor willing to pay.

Walk down a sloping pathway to a gate/doorway and ring the doorbell. The door opened and we were encouraged in, we viewed the ancient little temple and then met Thay Vien Thuc in his studio/showroom, he showed us his work and explained what he does and also played some music for us. I purchased copies of his book which he personally signed and some CD's of his music,He collects your address, if willing as he may visit one day.He was so charming and fun it was a truly memorable experience.

We visited this Pagoda as it was close to our Hotel but didn't spend more than 10mins there. There wasn't a great deal to see so I wouldn't recommend making the effort to visit if you are not in the area.

The main monk wasn't at the pagoda when we went. It is free to go in. Not a whole lot to see but we waited for a few minutes and rested before heading to the crazy house. The views are pretty and it's a good spot to feel the breeze although there really isn't anything special here.

Unlike the description, this is not a pagoda but just a small temple building. It's about 10-15 minutes walk from the "Crazy House" and is off the main road down a slope where the roundabout is. To our disappointment, the main attraction himself was not present. The brighter, newer coloured building to the left looked like living quarters. We were off in just 10 minutes.

I found this pagoda very interesting & reccomend that you go to the ones in Dalat. I arrived in dalat with my Easy Rider driver Lee, who i was lucky enough that he was free to take me around Dalat & see. Defienetly worth a visit , very clean with lots to see. Plus many western restaurants if you are missing anything. I didnt & loved the food. Internet is avaiable everywhere you go, which I found interesting between Cambodia & Vietnam plus you dont pay, as you do everywhere in UK
