Dieu De Pagoda was built by King Thieu Tri in 1844 on the platform of 5,000m² in
his old residence, where he was born in 1807. It was constructed on a large
scale, but was badly damaged during the successive wars. In 1889, Bonze Tam
Truyen was granted fund by King Thanh Thai to restore the pagoda, but once
again, it was badly damaged during a storm, in 1904. The present construction
was made in 1953. Behind the pagoda is a guest-room and a kitchen. In the
courtyard stand a stele house and a bell tower. The two-storey entrance gate is
topped with Dhamma Guardian's pavilion. Dieu De Pagoda was the third site listed
by King Thieu Tri in the 20 beauty spots of Hue.
