The Hoa My Sakyamuni Buddha Statue is situated near the Quang Minh Pagoda in Lien Chieu District’s Hoa Minh Ward, about 7km west of the inner city.  The 20m-high statue sits on a 10m-high lotus-shaped pedestal.

Built in 1965, the statue has 5 floors inside.  The 1st floor, with a diameter of 9.6m, has been used as a Buddhist library for the past 5 years.  On the left-hand side of the 1st floor’s front door, 29 internal steps lead up to the 2nd floor which is an exhibition area for Buddha statues, calligraphic paintings, and pictures of Bodhidharma.

From the 2nd floor, there is a 26-step staircase leading to the 3rd floor which showcases calligraphy and watercolour paintings.  From here, a further 23 steps lead up to the 4th floor and the display of a Buddha Shakyamuni Statue, and another 23 lead visitors to the top floor.  Between the 4th and 5th floors there is a 60cm-diameter circular window from which visitors can enjoy an amazing panoramic view of this part of the city.
