The Linh Ung – Bai But Pagoda, located in Son Tra peninsula in Da Nang city, was inaugurated in July 2010 after six years of construction. A highlight of the pagoda complex is the 67-metre white Bodhisattva Guanyin statute standing atop a lotus-shaped platform. The pagoda has been a favoured spiritual destination for both domestic and foreign Buddhist followers and visitors for years.
