"My friend took me to this place on her scooter one evening. It was a special day and there were many people there to pray,
worship etc, almost a family evening out. It is a really nice place, not that old and just nice to wander around and meet people who are very friendly. Statues of Buddha, huge bells, massive
drums and beautiful gardens to look at. I enjoyed myself and found it relaxing even though very busy, nice place for a visit, and I recommend it."
The Quang Duc Pagoda and the busy road
The Quang Duc Pagoda - is located in Mau Than Street. It is one of the largest and most active Buddhist temples with monks, who are living permanently here. Visitors are welcome at any time of the day. There are less people in the afternoon, when the sun is at the hottest point of the day, but it is again lively in the evening. It is much cooler in the evening.
This Buddhist temple is not an oasis of tranquillity. The Quang Duc pagoda is located one of the noisiest streets in Can Tho. It's a great opportunity to withdraw in. You can admire the beauty of the Quang Duc Pagoda and the beautifully carved doors, pillars and shutters.
On the grounds of the Quang Duc Pagoda is a small shop, which sells jewellery and incense sticks. Unfortunately, the pagoda is located close to the street. So expect while you meditate for nirvana, or to hear the sound of traffic.
The monks are ready to show you everything in the pagoda. You visit the ground floor, as well as the floor above.
When you entered the Quang Duc Pagoda through the gate, a path leads directly to a giant bronze Buddha seated on a lotus flower. The image is flanked by flowers.
The large number of Buddhist images the Quang Duc Pagoda is one of the largest temples in the Mekong Delta. In the main hall are also many decorations made of beads. On the top floor there is an embroidered image of the Buddha, which is quite unusual.
There are a lot of beautiful wooden windows, which have been carved very nicely and provide a classic beauty. The descriptor peel architecture is quite successful.
