Bat Pagoda: Home of Thousands of Bats in Mekong Delta

Table of contentHide All

    There are about 600 Khmer pagodas in the Mekong Delta, and none of them are similar. Among them, Bat Pagoda is home to thousands of bats. 

    Bat Pagoda or Ma Toc, Mahutup Temple is the typical architectural complex of the religion of Khmer. Located about 3 km southeast of Sóc Trăng City, the pagoda is a worship place for devout Buddhists from the Khmer community. This is also a community space where traditional festivals are held.

    At the entrance, visitors will be overwhelmed by the bright and shiny yellow colour that nearly covers the entire Bat Pagoda. While the main gate is simply decorated, the sub-gates are decorated with five-head giant snakes.

    The attractiveness of the Bat Pagoda also comes from the vast garden with numerous ancient trees interspersed with fruit trees like mango.

    Thousands of bats hang like fruit on trees. In the peak season, the temple attracts more than a million bats.
