Back to Vietnam sceneries.

The Trúc Lâm monastery complex was completed in 1994 with the aim of giving new life to the Trúc Lâm Yên Tử Zen sect, a uniquely Vietnamese form of Zen founded during the Trần dynasty (1225-1400).

The scenery around the Trúc Lâm monastery, with views of the nearby man-made lake, Tuyền Lâm Lake, and surrounding mountains, is breathtaking. Trúc Lâm can now be reached by a scenic tram ride from a hilltop (Robin) overlooking Dalat; a motorbike or taxi to the tram station costs little, and the round-trip is 50,000 VND (2010).
