The Long Son Pagoda, built in 1886, is a famous spiritual destination in Khanh Hoa Province, south central Vietnam.

The 3,000 square meters pagoda is located at the foot of the Trai Thuy Hill on Hai Muoi Ba Thang Muoi (23/10) Street. It has a typical Eastern Asian architectural layout, surrounded by different varieties of trees and plants.

The main building has a total area of over 1,500 square meters. According to the rule here, visitors must wear long pants when coming in the main building in order to show respects towards Buddha.

At the base of the statue are statues of seven monks, including Bodhisattva Thich Quang Duc, who immolated themselves to protest the oppression of Buddhists by the U.S.-propped Ngo Dinh Diem regime in 1963.
