Pho Da Pagoda is located at 340 Phan Chu Trinh Street, Da Nang City. The pagoda was founded and built by Venerable Thich Ton Thang in 1927 and was restored in 1937, 1945, and 1983.
Constructed according to the Han character 国 “Quoc”, Pho Da pagoda includes a sanctum, a Buddhist worshiping room and a lecture hall. Three bronze Buddha statues cast in 1947 are worshiped inside the sanctum. On the front ground lays a large oval lake. Standing on a huge rock in the middle of the lake is the 3m high Avalokitesvara Statue.
Pho Da pagoda was famous for what was formerly named Branch Central Institute of Buddhism Study. In 1961, its name was changed to Pho Da Pagoda. This is the place where many Buddhist monks and nuns have been trained. The pagoda is also the location of the School of Basic Buddhism Study.
