Hang Pagoda was founded by Mrs. Le Thi Tho (nicknamed Mrs. Tho), the legal name of Dieu Thien. Initially, the temple was just a small temple with bamboo roofing. In 1885, thanks to the merit of Mrs. Tho, Mr. Thong (Nguyen Ngoc Cang) joined Chau Doc People to donate money and work on rebuilding the pagoda, with the foundation of bricks, pillars with wheels and sport trees ... In 1937, the temple has been restored and built many times.
From the foot of the mountain to Hang Pagoda visitors must pass 300 high terraces.
In the flower garden, there is a water lily lake, surrounded by many other flowers blooming.
In the temple compound, there is a shrine dedicated to Maitreya Buddha statue. In front of the garden, there is a statue of Quan The Am Bodhisattva and four dharma guards standing to look at the foot of the mountain.
Legend has it that next to the temple of Lady Tho, there is a deep mountain cave, inside there are big, ferocious pythons. From the time Thieu came to the monastery, a couple of paws became gentle, often came to Mrs. Tho to lie down and listen to the prayers. She named them Thanh Xa and Bach Xa. After the Lady passed away, the pair of paws also suddenly disappeared.
