Fodor's Review

Twelve kilometers (7 miles) outside Soc Trang, in the village of Dai Tan, this is the largest Khmer pagoda and religious school (for novice monks) in the area. The original pagoda, built in 1815, was destroyed during the Vietnam War and was restored in 1969 using China bowls and plates—hence the name. The garden has several thatched huts in which pilgrims can meditate and a lively little market operates in front of the pagoda gates.
