Long Son Pagoda is situated at the foot of Mount Trai Thuy, northwest of Nha Trang, in Khanh Hoa province.The pagoda was first built on Mount Trai Thuy in 1886 and named Dang Long Pagoda. In 1900, the pagoda was damaged in a storm and was rebuilt down the mountain in its present location. The Khanh Hoa Buddhist Studies Foundation originated here in 1936. The pagoda underwent further restorations in 1940, 1971, and 1975.
Among the interesting things to see is the naturally lit image of Buddha displayed in this pagoda. There is also the 14-m red brass statue of Buddha sitting on a lotus pedestal.
This pagoda was built to commemorate the monks and nuns who died while fighting against the Diem government.
