TL 282, Thanh Khuong, Chu, Bac Ninh , Vietnam

An Indian monk arrived during the third century in what is now the Ha Tay Province, and established the Dau Pagoda that has become one of Vietnam's oldest. An ancient place of worship with ornate wooden carvings, it was rebuilt during the 14th century. The complex centers on the stout three-story tower and its bronze bell, but more intriguing are two statues said to be mummified monks who poisoned themselves. Located about 25 minutes southwest of Hanoi, the pagoda is the site of an annual festival on the eighth day of April.
