Description

The Pagoda of the Golden Lotus was founded in the 12C by Princess Tu Hoa, who taught villagers how to farm silkworms. One of these villagers became part of the Buddhist pantheon as Quynh Hoa, the "princess of silkworms", who is venerated in the main room of the pagoda, in the company of an effigy of Tu Hoa. As soon as you enter the pagoda, the charm of the setting is palpable, enhanced by its peaceful ambience and perfumed incense.
