Bich Dong Pagoda, All everything you need before you go
Bich Dong Pagoda is an indispensable stop in Ninh Binh’s discovery program during the day.
Bich Dong Pagoda is located in Trang An World Heritage site. The tranquil, tranquil landscape and beauty of the temple attracted many visitors when they arrived here.
Bich Dong consists of 3 small pagodas resting on the mountain, hidden behind lush green trees. Bich Dong means that the temple is made of turquoise stone.
Leading into the temple is a finely carved stone bridge, made of blue stone. Both Ha, Trung and Thuong pagodas are located deep in the cliffs, only looming over the hidden curved temple roof.
From Ha Pagoda, visitors continue to walk up to about 90 steps high to Trung Pagoda. This is a rare and very special temple because almost the whole temple is located in a hollowed-out cliff like a dragon’s mouth wide and full of temples. Only the roof and exposed area are outside.
Highest is Thuong pagoda, from here visitors can observe and see the whole Trang An Heritage site from above.
Old story about Bich Dong Pagoda.
In 1705, there were two venerable brothers and sisters, on the way to devotees and built a pagoda, stopped here. Realizing that this is a beautiful place and the temple is available, it decided to stay and cultivate. And 3 temples Thuong, Trung and Ha swung are open and expanded and maintained so far.
During that time, the two monks donated and cast a large bell. Currently, there is still storage and protection at Dark Cave.
When Lord Trinh Sam came to visit the pagoda around 1774, he visited the pagoda and named Bich Dong Pagoda. Bich Dong means Green cave. Probably when Trinh Sam came here, looking at the mountains, mountains, rivers, fields, trees were green. The pagoda like converging green background should be Green Cave, very beautiful name and dream.
At the time of building Bich Dong Pagoda, like other temples of the same period, were made from ironwood and roofed with tiles. When looking at the front, the temple roof curves and looks like a dragon boat floating on the water.
When another quarter came here, besides visiting the ancient pagoda, there was another pleasure: riding on the village roads, watching the peaceful life of the people here.
