Visit the Lam Ty Ni Pagoda or so-called ‘Mad Monk Temple’ to see for yourself.Some visitors find his operation a bit odd and un-Zen like, however others help spread the good word around. Many tour companies now include this place in their Dalat tour program.
Lam Ty Ni Pagoda is one of the stranger attractions that you are likely to encounter on your visit to this mountain city. This is the home of Mr Thay Vien Thuc, a strange and remarkable monk. Often known as the crazy monk.
It only takes ten minutes to walk from the Summer Palace. There are many beautiful potted plants and a small bamboo forest. It is rare for tourists and very quiet. There is a small archway inside that looks a bit old. It takes about ten minutes to visit, the place is very small ~ walk along a sloping path to the door and ring the doorbell. The door opened and we were encouraged to go in. We visited the old small temple and then saw Thay Vien Thuc in his studio/showroom. He showed us his work, explained his work, and gave us Played some music. I bought a few autographed books and some of his music CDs. He will also save your address, so he can go if he wants to visit one day. He was so charming and interesting, it was a truly unforgettable experience.
A place with local cultural characteristics, I recommend everyone to come
This is a religious attraction in Da Lat. There is a pagoda here, built in 1961, where a respected Zen master once lived here.
