The Buddhist festival, which fell on March 14-16 (on the 17th-19th day of second lunar month), honours Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, while praying for peace and prosperity for the country.

The festival includes incense-offering ceremony, traditional boat- racing, a praying ceremony, Buddhism indoctrination, and exhibitions of paintings, photos and calligraphy.

Listed among the country’s 15 biggest festivals since 2000, the festival has become a spiritual tourism product of Danang, welcoming Buddhist followers from across Vietnam.

It contributes to preserving the national cultural identities and promoting Danang’s tourism to domestic and foreign visitors.

Quan The Am Pagoda, built in 1957, is located at the foot of the Kim Son (Metal Mountain) in the Ngu Hanh Son (Five Element Mountains), which boasts wonderful natural landscapes with several ancient pagodas, mysterious caves and picturesque scenery.
