With our ticket to Hoi An old town we were allowed to visit 5 attractions so we chose Chua Phap Boa Pagoda as our first choice. We had seen so many pagodas in Asia and this one was similar to the rest, but if you have never seen a pagoda before you will probably enjoy a visit here.

Phap Bao is the pseudonym of Minh Hai ancestor, the 34-year-old Lam Te Chanh Zen sect, declared the painting of Phap Bao Pagoda -
The Zen master Minh Hai-Phap Bao (1670-1746), the Patriarch of Lam Te Chuc Thanh, was one of the first Chinese Zen teachers to bring Lam Te Zen to Quang Nam. Here he leaves the lineage of the Lineage of the 34th generation, later becoming a separate branch of the Lineage of Minh Te Minh Hai or the Lineage of the Godly Blessings.
After Zen Master Thach Liem returned home, some members of the delegation stayed in Minh Hai - Phap Bao and Minh Luong - Thanh Dang.
The Zen Master Minh Hai - Phap Bao opened the Temple of Chuc Thanh in Cam Pho commune (now Hoi An town) in 1697. At first, Minh Hai only set up a workshop to practice spiritually, a few years later, he opened a school . teaching and training Sangha. His virtues influenced a large number of Hoi people, the number of people taking refuge was very large. After that, he wanted the lineage to be long-lasting so that he should leave the school to establish the Lin Te Chuc sect. Legend has it that during Minh Hai's reign, Chuc Thanh Pagoda was just a small, small temple, after which his generation continued to promote the dharma and develop the architecture of To Dinh temple, like today. . Phap Bao Pagoda was renovated in 2000. The temple is currently located in the office of the Buddhist Representative Committee of Hoi An town.

When you travel Asia you see a lot of temples. This one was special and also quiet.Made some nice pictures here and had time for a nice meditation. One special statue, a lady with hundreds of hands, faces, eyes, behind glass. Beautifull and facinating

Chua Phap Bao Pagoda is on Hai Ba Trung, just before you cross the intersection with Tran Hung Dao to enter Hoi An Ancient Village.

Whatever your schedule, it is worth taking a few minutes to go into this Buddhist temple and admire the architecture, the gardens, and the statuary,

But please remember that this is a living Buddhist temple with monks, so act respectfully, dress modestly, and do remember to take off your shoes if you go into the temple buildings themselves.

We had just left the Ancient Town of Hoi An and across the road we noticed this place. The garden has numerous statues and is relatively large.

After spending about 30 minutes in the gardens and main building we noticed in another building several Buddhist Monks partaking of some refreshments. The setting appears to be a monastery.

Well worth a visit.

This temple is on the other side of the road that separates two- and four-wheeled motor vehicle Ancient Hoi An from its less busy, less polluted counterpart. It's still worth a visit, though, as it's quite beautiful with a lot of vegetation and a large main building. It's not quite an oasis of peace as two of its sides face busy streets, but it's still a good place to refresh yourself and just sit for a while. Be sure to bring clothing to cover your arms and legs.

Chua Phap Bao Pagoda is a Buddhist temple sitting just outside the ancient precincts of Hoi An.

It is distinguished by a large Buddha as you enter the pagoda gardens through an arched gateway.

Entry is free, buy you must be dressed modestly, which means a dress of shorts to the knee and no bare shoulders. You must also remember to take off your shoes if you go into the temple itself.

Remember this is a living pagoda with monks in residence, so act respectfully and don't talk too loudly.

I absolutely love this temple, I go there every time I'm in Hoi An and it soothes my soul. This time I joined their prayers every evening and it was definitely the food for my soul that I needed. I felt uncomfortable at first, being the only westerner, but they were all so kind and let me know what to do. There was also a big celebration one of the nights I was there with singing, dancing and prayers/chanting. Everyone was given a candle and they made sure I had one and that it got lit, it was very special. It's a lovely place to go just for a visit in the day too, quiet with lovely gardens and the temple of course is gorgeous.
