The roof of the temple is a soft, curved tile roof that harmonizes with the surrounding landscape creating a wonderful scene. Like other pagodas, Khai Doan Dak Lak pagoda is in front of the three-door gate, next is the main hall, and behind is the ancestor.

It is worth noting that the columns in the main hall are made of ironwood, making us feel more solid. The main hall features a majestic statue of Shakyamuni Buddha along with a large bronze bell. According to the monks at the temple, this Buddha statue is made of bronze, 1.1m high, the lotus is made of precious wood, meticulously carved.

Currently, many tourists come to visit and worship Buddha. It is also for this reason that this place has become a famous spiritual tourist destination when traveling to Buon Ma Thuot city. There is a note to visitors that when you want to visit and worship Buddha, people must take off their shoes to keep the sanctity and cleanliness of the temple.
