Chau Son Monastery

Chau Son Monastery Church was built in 1939, located in a quiet mountainous area. With the direction of West-East axis, the monastery is designed in Gothic style with surrounding walls up to 0.6 m thick, columns 1.2 m thick, creating warmth in winter and coolness in summer. The entire house in the Monastery is built with unpainted red bricks creating a classic background covered with moss over the years, standing out among the green lawns and the lake. The designers have cleverly erected a number of miniatures, blowing the soul of ancient Europe to this place.

The campus of the monastery is planted with hundreds of trees, colorful flowers and is cared for and pruned with art. Walking in the campus, you will immerse yourself in the open nature, listen to the birds chirping or mingle in the gentle, melodious piano music.

In addition, Chau Son Holy Mother Monastery also designed a giant artificial egg rock field, a laterite well located underground or on a sophisticated carved stone cave. A fairy garden appears before your eyes. If you are looking for a place to relax after the chaos of life, this place is the perfect choice for you.
