Yen Tu Festival
01 Mar 2018 - 31 Mar 2018 | Ha Long

Held throughout the month, the Yen Tu Festival sees Vietnam’s Zen Buddhist community converge in a spectacular pilgrimage to the Dong Pagoda in the Yen Tu mountains of Quang Ninh Province. Vietnam’s King-Monk Tran Nhan Tong founded the first Vietnamese school of Zen Buddhism in this mountain complex, which now contains 11 pagodas and countless shrines. Solemn processions, prayers, and rites are part of the yearly festival at Yen Tu, which lasts for three months in total.
