Project Description

Ba La Mat pagoda was built in 1885. Upon arrival, bring offerings such as fruits & flowers (that your guide prepared beforehand) to the monks. The monks will take you around the pagoda to give you an overview of the compound and daily life. Then, enjoy a prayer ceremony. Close your eyes while holding the candles and whisper your wish.
