Tien Chau ancient Pagoda
Tien Chau ancient Pagoda is situated in An Binh River Island (An Binh Commune, Long Ho District). At first it was called Di Da Tu. At the end of the 19th century Di Da Pagoda was severely damaged and restored in the year of pig (1889). This name Tien Chau Tu (Tien Chau Pagoda) was officially accepted then.
The present Tien Chau Pagoda is of the same size as that of 1899. Di Da Tu is an old Pagoda and Bai Tien (the Fairy Beach) is a scenery spot so this place of interest has attracted lots of tourists. This Tien Chau Pagoda was officially recognized by the Ministry of Cultural and Information as a national art and architecture heritage on December 12, 1994.
