Buddhists the world over have built plenty of tall statues of Buddha. But “Buddha” does not just mean the man born Siddhartha Gautama. “Buddha” also means “Enlightened One,” and there’s no reason why a great sage can’t be a woman.
The Linh Ung Pagoda, just outside Da Nang, decided to build the world’s largest statue of an indisputably feminine Buddha. The resulting Lady Buddha towers 220 feet (67 meters) tall and is perched atop of a lotus-shaped temple. (Atlas obscura)

  2. 2. The Linh Ung pagoda on Son Tra peninsula is possibly the most famous as it hosts the highest Guanyin Statue in Vietnam, a giant white statue, considered as a symbol of Da Nang city. One special thing of the Lady Buddha Da Nang is whether you are standing in any place in the city, you can easily see the white statue which leans on the mountain, overlooking the Pacific Ocean
  3. 3. Legends had it that in the period of King Minh Mang, the fishermen in Bai But found a Buddhist statue floating on the sea. They believed it was a favorable omen, so they built a worshipping shrine there. That was also where Linh Ung pagoda was constructed later on

  5. 5. Tam Quan gate
  6. 6. Tam Quan gate
  7. 7. Tam Quan gate
  8. 8. Tam Quan gate
  9. 9. The name Lady Buddha is a bit deceiving. The statue in fact depicts Guanyin, the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy who can be found in coastal areas throughout Asia, as she is believed to bring calm to the sea. The giant statue stands in front of the beautiful Linh Ung Pagoda, with its gardens and small souvenir shop operated by monks. The Quan Yin status with the height of 67m, approximately to 30 floor building and 35 m in diameter lotus is considered as the highest Buddha statue in Vietnam. On top of Guayin’s hat, there is a 2m-high statue of Buddha. There are 17 floors in the statue lap, each representing a different aspect of the Buddha

  17. 17. Most Buddhist temples include statues of the arhats. Although many hundreds may sometimes be represented, a set of eighteen can be found almost always
  18. 18. 18 stone Arhat statues are one of the most distinctive features of Ling Ung pagoda which were carved up by artist Nguyen Viet Minh (The head of Non Nuoc craft village) with monolithic white stone materials brought from Thanh Hoa
  19. 19. Technically, an arhat is a Buddhist adept who has attained a state where reincarnation will no longer be necessary, and nirvana lies just ahead
  20. 20. All disciples of the Buddha are assumed to have become arhats
  21. 21. In popular thought, arhats often have supernatural powers

With an area of more than 4,400 hectares, Son Tra is able to regenerate enough oxygen for 4 million people every day, and is a storage of fresh water for the city and the entire underground water system in Da Nang and Hoi An. A prominent attraction in Da Nang is Linh Ung Pagoda set on Son Tra (Monkey) Mountain, now considered as the largest pagoda in Da Nang City in both scale and art of architecture.
