Nam Nha Pagoda

"We see the sun rise on the Mekong River. It will be light and warm in no time. After an hour we are at the first floating market. Our boat squeezes through the traders. It is a spectacle. Lunch is served from another boat; Vietnamese noodlesoup. Via side branches of the river and channels we arrive in Cantho after more than eight hours. With a wooden bottom. It is better to sit on a saddle for 8 hours than on a wooden board for so long."


The gate of Nam Nha Pagode

          Can Tho is a unique city full of charm - in the heart of the Mekong Delta and always gives visitors great feelings. Nam Nha Pagoda is one of the most popular destinations in Can Tho, not to be missed during your trip. It is one of those beautiful old temples, which is famous for its architecture and decorative style. Nam Nha Pagoda is also one of the places with deep historical and cultural value for Can Tho.
The Nam Nha Pagoda is open from 7.30 am to 5 pm. The entrance is free.

 


The pagoda was built in 1895. From the beginning the pagoda was called Nam Nha Duong and it was a pharmacy. It was built and opened by Nguyen Giac Nguyen. Subsequently, Nguyen Giac Nguyen became a Buddhist monk and changed the name to the Minh Su Pagoda. Later the name of the pagoda changed again and since then it has been called “Nam Nha Pagoda”. Since 1905 the patriotic tradition of the monks and Buddhists started. The pagoda became a headquarters for supporting students in the study and dissemination of patriotic poetry.

In the grounds of the temple is located on a spacious campus, which is surrounded by a large garden and extends to the banks of the Binh Thuy River.
The garden contains many beautiful conifers, rosewood and other large old trees. The gate of the Nam Nha pagoda is made of bricks and tiles. The two sides of the column have lyrics that welcome and encourage people to live good lives. However, the further significance is inviting people who are patriotic.
The grounds of the pagoda are tiled and there is a rock garden of more than 2 m high, which is placed in a pond in the middle of the garden.

 


The garden of the Nam Nha Pagoda

The main hall of the pagoda is a large brick house, with 5 sections, a yin-yang tiled roof and an image of a dragon. It was built in the early 20th century in the style of Asian architecture.
In the main hall of Nam Nha Pagode, the central space is very solemnly decorated. There is the altar for the three religions: Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism. It means that no matter what religion, all religions teach people to live a good life, to be better and to live by goodness and beauty.

 

There is a long corridor behind the central hall. To the right and left of the pagoda are two rows of tiled houses, Can Dao Duong (Dong Lang Building) for men and Khon Dao Duong (Tay Lang Building) for women, connected to a kitchen. Behind the temple is a lush, beautiful orchard.

Every year, large festivals are held in the pagoda, such as for the worship of the full moon in January, the full moon in July, the full moon in October and the birthday of the Buddha. The festivals follow traditional religious rituals.


Nam Nha Pagoda

In general, Nam Nha Pagoda is famous in the region, not only for the beauty of the elegant architecture, the peaceful scenery, which can help to balance body and mind. It is also known because it has been activated in the past to promote the awareness and literacy of the Vietnamese people, especially in Can Tho.
