The entire crossbar and vertical beam are cast in the shape of a dragon’s head. The four tops of the pagoda are shaped like a sloping roof, looking like a blooming lotus. The comedy-shaped pagoda’s tiles, the partition walls, the balustrades, the cranes, the couplets, the dragon reliefs are all vividly cast.
Previously, to get to Dong Pagoda, the only way to reach the top of Yen Son was walking, having to pass thousands of stone steps and mountain roads on a distance of about 6 km to reach the top of Yen Son.

Legend has it that Dong Yen Tu pagoda has rattan bells, wind chimes and rain bells. Every time the bell is ringing, the clouds, rain and wind pull back very sacred. Next to the pagoda there is a well, known by the people as Tien well, the special thing is that the well is located on the top of the mountain but never runs dry.
