Location: Vinh Trang Pagoda is located in a large garden in My Phong Commune, Mytho City, Tien Giang Province.
Characteristics: The architecture of the pagoda is a harmonious combination of Asian and European types of architecture, creating the splendid, but simple features of this Buddhist pagoda.
Vinh Trang Pagoda is the greatest pagoda of Tien Giang Province, in an area of 2,000m2 with many beautiful trees.
The pagoda was built by Mr. and Mrs. Bui Cong Dat in the early 19th century. From 1849, the pagoda was managed by Buddhist Priest Hue Dang from Giac Lam Pagoda in Ho Chi Minh City. He led people to refine the pagoda and named it Vinh Trang Pagoda. The pagoda consists of 5 buildings, 2 ornamental yards, and 178 pillars. Graves of Buddhist priests who took care of the pagoda are scattered around. These graves are decorated with carefully engraved flagstones.
