But Thap Pagoda : Michelin's recommendations
The "Writing Brush" pagoda, built in the 17C amid the rice fields, comprises several buildings which are home to some outstanding carved and lacquered wood items. In the Bell Tower, note the statue of Quan Am sitting on a lotus supported by a dragon, and another representing an ascetic Buddha. Don't miss the splendid bas-relief of animals on the funerary pagoda.
