Just outside Hue this complex contains many areas of worships as well as a big nunnery dedicated to young Buddhist female nuns and novices.
We spent a wonderful couple of hours here taking pictures and having lunch at the nunnery.

We had really wanted to go here, but on our own and not as part of a tour. We visited many monasteries called Tu Hieu looking for it, but alas, not this one....
The plus side was we had an absolute blast scooting about the countryside on our motorbike looking for it 👍

I went to pay my respects to master thich nhat hanh. It is a lovely old monastery full of historical artefacts like tombs. However the main hall is under construction and so it is noisy to pray. There are many rivers nearby so mosquitoes are aplenty. Bring insect repellant. I hope master thich nhat hamh has some too. :(

A little bit outside Hué, this Pagoda must be on your list in Hué. Beautiful location. As it’s outside Gué, you won’t meet to many people, witch is quiet interesting in Hué😁

The world zen master’s original ordained temple and currently residing here. According to the little English speaking nun (Hope to get it right), the meditation is daily 430am and 7pm. 2 hours by car from Danang town, you may charter one way or two ways car. Love the amazing place and wishing to be back here with an overnight stay nearby to join the meditation. Meeting the master is relatively unsure and depends on master’s health and outdoor timing.

We arrived early 7.30am to visit here before the hoards of tourists which didn't disappoint. This is the temple where Thich Nhat Hahn the famous Buddhist Monk now resides. This area is extremely peaceful and you can walk around the grounds and soak in the atmosphere. It has a meditative feel to it and the nuns and monks walk around the grounds too. We were lucky enough to hear the nuns chanting. the buildings are old and there is some renovations going on. It was a magical experience.

i went to this pagoda because it was so peaceful. lunch can be had with the nuns. i didn't do it so i can't tell you if it was good but i imagine so. the famous monk is there. he's sickly, weak but still amazing to hear speak which he does once/twice a week depending on his health.

Tu Hieu Pagoda complex sits amongst the trees and seems to be an escape for the monks there. It also has a lot of headstones scattered throughout the property. Unfortunately for us, the main pagoda was under repair at the time of our visit. There was no roof, rubble everywhere, and cordoned off as a construction site. I still enjoyed it and found the complex as a whole very interesting.

A peaceful & tranquil space. Established gardens surround the pagoda, making it at least a few degree cooler than in town. Best to visit early in the morning before the tour buses arrive.

An interesting bit of Vietnamese history, the eunuchs of the Nguyen dynasty took over this temple area and had many of their graves here, as you walk in you'll be confronted by hawkers selling crackers to feed the fish in the pond, the grounds aren't well maintained but it is a historical place for the history of Vietnam, few tourists go here it's out past Tu Duc tombs if I remember rightly, and makes for an interesting afternoon.
