The pagoda is unique because of the materials used to build it, which are millions of shards of vases, dishes, bowls and other household utensils. Therefore, the pagoda is also called Ve Chai (glass scrap) Pagoda. A highlight of Linh Phuoc is a 49-meter dragon made of 12,000 shards of glass bottles.
