The scenic landscape and sacredness in the religious culture of Vietnamese people


About 100 km outside of Hanoi, lies one of the most popular religious sites in Vietnam, the Perfume Pagoda actually consists of a series of pagodas built inside grottoes. The sacred shrines are typical of Buddhist shrines found all over the world, but their unique context and importance to Vietnamese Buddhists - who show up in the springtime in large numbers - make the Perfume Pagoda an obligatory stop in Vietnam's north.
