The Perfume Pagoda is a Buddhist pagoda set in limestone caves, dedicated to Quan Am, the guardian spirit of Mother and Child, to which thousands of Vietnamese make an annual pilgrimage in the middle of the second lunar month to pray for children. The temple is reached by river boat, plus a long climb. Among the better known sites here are Thien Tru (Pagoda leading to Heaven) and Chua Giai Oan (Purgatorial Pagoda), where those with faith believe deities purify souls, cure suffering and bring offspring to childless families. The statue of Quan Am was carved in 1793 after Tay Son rebels had melted down the earlier bronze statue to use for cannonballs
