Long Son Pagoda with previous name Dang Long Tu which is a popular tourist destination and the oldest pagoda in town. It is located in the ward of Phuong Son, and sits at the foot of Trai Thuy Mountain, was erected on another hill in 1886 under the abbotship of Thich Ngo Chi (1856–1935). In 1900, after a large cyclone, the temple was destroyed and had to be moved from the hill to its current location. The central building is not exceptional, the main

feature instead being the large White Buddha 24m height sitting on top of the hill and 17m long sleeping Buddha. On the Buddha’s birthday – 08th of 04th month in the lunar year, all of monks and followers make a celebration of worshipping to show their respects and pray for peace.
