The Buddhist Meditation is located on phoenix hill with an area of 25 ha. From there, we can see the panoramic view of Tuyen Lam lake and Elephant mountain in the far distance.

With its advantage of location, Truc Lam monastery meditation was designed with a new style of  architecture by Mr. Ngo Viet Thu. The sanctum  was designed by architect Huynh Ngoc An. The sanctum has rectangle shape which is toward the South. Sanctum surroundings are a lot of  traditional Vietnamese pagodas which were  built by ferro-concrete. The monastery was designed modernly. It is simple in its form but modern in structure and use.

The pagoda was built in 1993 -1994 by  superior Buddhist monk Thich Thanh Tu and it was designed with the oriental architecture style. With the beautiful landscapes, the pagoda is not only a place for meditation but also an ideal place for visiting.
