Linh An Pagoda is located in Nam Ban townlet, Lam Ha district which is 300 km from Ho Chi Minh city, 200km from Buon Ma Thuot city and nearly 200 km from Phan Thiet city.

The pagoda, built in 1993, is located at the elevation of 1,080m. It is a green pine tree hill in the back of the pagoda and Elephant Falls in front of it. Some of the prominent features are long, stone dragons along the steps to the entrance, bonsai gardens, and a giant, happy Buddha statue in back.

Linh An pagoda, covering 4 hectares, was established in 1993 by Mr. Thich Tam Vi.

Identical Bodhisattva statues nearly 3 meters high are arranged in long rows on a stone platform, solemnly under shady trees.

The Bodhisattva statues number nearly 500.

The most imposing place of this pagoda is its 1,500 m2 sanctum which was built in 1999. Its roof is covered with red tiles. Buddhas with many arms in the main hall.

In mid-2017, Linh An Pagoda built a 54 m high statue of Bodhisattva, to create a highlight in the pagoda’s grounds.

The true treasure though is the enormous white Buddha statue around the right side of the pagoda, which sports a massive cheeky grin. In front of the sanctum, there is a statue of Maitreya (Di Lac) Buddhist which is 12.5m high, 6.5m wide and takes 630m2.

Thac Voi (elephant waterfall), is one of the beautiful waterfalls of the Central Highlands with a height of over 30m, 15m wide.
