Bai Dinh Temple

Vietnam Destination - Ninh Binh, Bai Dinh Temple

Bai Dinh Temple Spiritual and Cultural Complex is a complex of Buddhist temples in Bai Dinh Mountain in Gia Vien District, Ninh Binh province

It consists of one old temple area and a new temple area, which is being constructed. This is considered the largest complex of Buddhist temples at completion in Vietnam. This is a popular site for Buddhist pilgrims across Vietnam.

The area for constructing Ba Dinh Pagoda is 80ha, this mass is executing many items of Pagoda including Tam The (Past, Present and Future) Temple, Sanctuary and Bodhisatva Kwan Yin statue, Dharma Temple, Bell-tower, Three-door temple gate, and dormitory area for Buddhist monks, etc.

The area of Tam The Temple and Drama Temple up to 1.000m2 (area of the main sanctuary of traditional pagodas is maximum about 150m2 because it is limited by compartments - stipulated by the length of wood beam). Containing four achieving record statues inside, Dharma Temple is high up to 22m. Four statues - three bronze Tam The statues and one Great Buddha Sakyamuni statue - are the pride of “Owners” of Bai Dinh pagoda.

Another special feature in Bai Dinh pagoda is “Great Bell” with the weight of 36 tons was casted and located in Bell Tower. In addition, there is 70 -ton bronze drum on the floor of the Tower. What's more, coming to Bai Dinh pagoda, visitors have a chance to see the biggest Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva statue in Bodhissattva Temple. This statue looks so marvellous with thousand hands and eyes to present the protection and universal salvation for common people.

Surprisingly, visitors will be astonished at the collection of 500 Arahat statues on the hill on the right – hand side of Dharma Temple. The 500 Arhat statues with the height of 2.3m, carved by Ninh Binh stone have different positions and gestures that create lively atmosphere and magic space.

The difference in most Bai Dinh Pagoda architecture shown in dark brown curved roofs surround the tail soaring phoenix bird, it's not the same style as those in Chinese pagoda. Decors of the pagoda are highlighted with markers of the handicraft villages known as casting the Y Yen, Ninh Van manipulated stone, wood, Phu Loc Ninh Hai embroidery…
