The Pagoda Thien Mu or Pagoda of the Celestial Lady is a historic temple in the city of Huế in Vietnam. The name of the pagoda comes from a legend. Long ago an old woman known as Thien Mu (literally "Heavenly Lady") appeared on the hill where the pagoda now stands. She told the local people that one day a King would come and build a Buddhist temple for the country’s prosperity. In 1601, on hearing this legend, King Nguyen Hoang began construction of the pagoda. It's built on a hill overlooking the Perfume River, about 4km (2.5 miles) southwest of the Citadel and is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved religious sites in Vietnam.
