Linh Son Pagoda took two years to build from 1938 -1940. The temple was funded by lay Buddhists and the Dalat public. The temple is built in a classical Asian style of architecture, and is of a simple layout and model. At the two corners of the temples, are dragon statues, staring at the roof of the temple. The Board of the Buddhist Association of Lam Dong Province is headquartered at the temple. The large bell is said to be made from bronze alloyed with gold. This makes it too heavy for anyone to carry away, including thieves, so it is left unprotected. Several monks and novices monks live at the temple.
