Explore The Half Day Tour To Thay & Tay Phuong Pagoda


You can depart either in the morning at 8.00 am or in the afternoon at 2.00 pm depending on your convenience to visit the first Thay (Teacher) Pagoda.

Thay Pagoda was built in the 11th century during the reign of King Ly Nhan Tong. At first, it was a small pagoda managed by Priest Tu Dao Hanh. The pagoda was initially built according to Sino-Vietnamese character Tam – this character is formed by 3 hyphens parallel to each other.
The pagoda, therefore, consists of 3 sections: Ha Pagoda, Trung Pagoda, and Thuong Pagoda. The outer part, Ha Pagoda, is a place for offerings and ceremonies; the middle part, Trung Pagoda, is a place for worship of Buddha; and finally, the inner part is a place for worship of Priest Tu Dao Hanh. An automated sandalwood statue of Tu Dao Hanh that stands and sits is located in a red lacquered shrine trimmed with gold and covered with a curtain.

Continue to visit the Tay Phuong pagoda which is just very near to Thay pagoda. Tay Phuong architecture describes as: “The central construction has a directing role and is consequently raised higher than the others. It symbolizes Heaven. The construction at the rear plays the role of a foundation: it symbolizes the earth. The construction closest to the world of man stands in front. The whole structure is the symbol of Thai Cuc (the Prime Principle, from which the whole world derives). The double tier of the roof symbolizes the double principle, Luong Nghi, yin, and yang. The slopes, the roof on the four sides symbolize the four elements of heaven, Tu Tuong; the sun, moon, stars, and deities, while the slopes on the eight sides stand for the Eight Signs of the Sacred Octagon (Bat Quai)”
