Niet Ban Tinh Xa (Nirvana Vihara) is located on Ha Long Street, Vung Tau City, approximately 130km from Ho Chi Minh City. It is one of the largest pagodas with modern architectural lines in Ba Ria Vung Tau.

Nirvana Vihara Pagoda is one of the most beautiful Buddhist temples in Vung Tau where the traditional architecture and the modern combine harmoniously.

Niet Ban Tinh Xa Pagoda was built on a hill from 1969 to 1974. The pagoda has a flag pillar, a symbol of an ancient lotus stupa. Among the many items to observe are the 42 stairs paved with bricks, a 3.5-ton bell, and intricate mosaic work.

It is also known for the 12m long Nirvana Buddha statue located in the main hall of the pagoda, placed on the 2.5 m high altar. The outer surface of the altar is the image of disciples witnessing Buddha attaining Nirvana.

Seeing the open and pure space, facing the vast ocean, and surrounded by woods, from the rooftop of the pagoda visitors can admire the blue sea of Vung Tau with boats on the far side of the horizon.
