From 1971 to 1975, the temple was restored by Thich Thien Binh, the new implementation is restored to 60% depending on the design of the architect Vo Dinh Diep. The implementation was finally restored only 60% of the temple according to the design of the architect Vo Dinh Diep.

Long Son Pagoda
This striking pagoda was founded in the late 19th century. The entrance and roofs are decorated with mosaic dragons constructed of glass and ceramic tile while the main sanctuary is a hall adorned with modern interpretations of traditional motifs.
Behind the pagoda is a huge white Buddha seated on a lotus blossom. Around the statue’s base are fire-ringed relief busts of Thich Quang Duc and six other Buddhist monks who died in self-immolations in 1963.
The platform around the 14m-high Buddha has great views of Nha Trang and nearby rural areas. As you approach the pagoda from the street, the 152 stone steps up the hill to the Buddha begin to the right of the structure. Take some time to explore off to the left, where there’s an entrance to another hall of the pagoda.
Beggars congregate within the complex, as do a number of scam artists. There’s a persistent scam here, where visitors are approached by children (and occasionally older people) with pre-printed name badges claiming to work for the monks. After showing you around the pagoda, whether invited to or not, they will then demand money ‘for the monks’ or, if that fails, insist that you buy postcards for 200,000d. The best course of action is to firmly let them know you don’t require their services when they first appear. If they persist, tell them you’re not going to give them any money. If you do want to make a contribution towards the upkeep of the complex, leave it in the donation boxes as you would in any other pagoda.
The pagoda is located about 400m west of the train station, just off Ð 23 Thang 10.
