Lady Buddha, Da Nang Overview

Lady Buddha is a phenomenal, 67 meters tall white statue that stands high in the Linh Ung Pagoda courtyard in the Son Tra Peninsula in Da Nang. The feet of the Lady Buddha rest on a white Lotus. The left-hand of the Lady Buddha holds the bottle of holy water and the eyes overlook the sea

About 14 km away from the city centre, the Lady Buddha statue is an imposing albeit a benevolent structure. The lotus structure on which it rests has a diameter of 35 metres that is equivalent to that of a 30-storey building. It is believed that the structure is visible from almost 35 kms away.

The statue rises up for 17 floors and each floor houses a different Buddha - which essentially means 'The Enlightened One'. The statue can be reached by an arguably difficult trek but is made worth it by the views around. The statue rises among some structured topiaries which are delightful in themselves.
