Hau Giang Truc Lam Zen Monastery

The Zen monastery located on an area of around 4 hectares at Vinh Tuong crossroads, Vinh Tuong ward in Long My town.
The monastery is one of the Truc Lam Yen Tu Zen Schools, which was founded by 13th century King Tran Nhan Tong and recently revived by Most Venerable Thich Thanh Tu.
Tran Nhan Tong (1258-1308) was the third king of the Tran Dynasty to practice and propagate Buddhism. He founded the Truc Lam School of Zen 700 years ago. After defeating Mongol invaders, the king abdicated his throne at the age of 35 and spent the rest of his life on Yen Tu Mountain. During that time, the King-Monk worked to unify different sects of Vietnamese Buddhism into Vietnamese Zen Buddhism.
