Day 167 - 4 Temples
Most people only go to see the Thien Mu Temple in Hue but if you go a bit further you have some other nice temples hidden away.
You can do a loop and visit four temples, including the Thien Mu Temple on your way back to Hue. The fist i the Huyen Khong temple and while its relatively new, it looks quite different and unique with it's big pagoda that not look too out of place in a Star Wars movie.
Next on the lit was the Kim Son Temple, it's quite small but is located in the woods a bit off the main road so makes for a quiet and pleasant visit.
The third temple is the Phuoc Duyan Temple and it's in the middle of a graveyard. It does look different with brick accents and concrete painted like wood to give it a different look with the big staircases looking like being in a mansion.
Last temple on the way to Hue is the Thien Mu Temple, he pagoda i nice and if you're here for sunset on a clear day you get some very nice views but it's quite touristy so be prepared for a more commercial experice.
