Yen Tu has been considered one of the country’s Buddhism hubs since Tran Nhan Tong (1258-1308), the third king of the Tran Dynasty, one of the country’s culturally thriving dynasties, founded “Thien Truc Lam Yen Tu,” Vietnam’s hallmark Buddhist meditation sect.

King Tong and his two successors built hundreds of pagodas and shrines throughout the Yen Tu complex, including famous structures, which boast thousands of prized statues and artifacts.
