Visitors flock to Huong Pagoda Festival.

Visiting Huong Pagoda complex during the festival is a spiritual journey to the Buddhist Land – where the Goddess of Mercy leads a religious life. Visitors have sightseeing trips to pagodas, temples and caves which are the main attractions, and join ceremonies to ask for favours from Lord Buddha.

Aside from its religious significance, the complex also holds special values in terms of ecosystem, landscape, architecture and history.

The Huong Son complex was listed among national special relic sites in December 2017. It draws millions of visitors every year.

The complex was built under the reign of King Le Thanh Tong (1442 – 1497). It was destroyed by French colonialists but has been rebuilt with the support of the State, local residents and visitors.

The Huong Tich cavern has the autograph of Lord Trinh Sam in 1770 which describes it as the most beautiful cave in the country.
