The Crazy House – An Architectural Block Unique to Dalat

What’s the first thing that pops into your mind when someone talks about Dalat? Poetic? Beautiful? Historical? While these features surely tell a lot about this romantic city of love, they are not all that define Dalat in its glory. There is another building that is widely renowned in Dalat for its uniqueness and queerness, and today, let Ana Mandara take you on a stroll around this extraordinary architectural block called The Crazy House.

The Crazy House, known by the locals as Hang Nga Villa, is located at Huynh Thuc Khang Street, Ward 4, Da Lat City. This is a strange and unique architectural block designed by architect Dang Viet Nga, the daughter of the late General Secretary Truong Chinh. If you are visiting Dalat for the first time (or the second, or the third time), the Crazy House is a building that is worth your visit.

Garden of Heaven

The Garden of Heaven is considered a fairytale land, home to mythical creatures such as dragons and pegasi. However, the land of the fae folks here is very much not like the others. The Garden of Heaven is made up of strange and surreal building blocks.

Once stepping into the Garden of Heaven at the Crazy House, you will enjoy a surreal feeling that is similar to walking into the land of the fairies, where you will eventually get enchanted and forget about the everyday worries of your daily life.

Garden of Eden

Opposite from the Garden of Heaven is the Garden of Eden, where everything is dark and twisted. Rumors have it that it has made a lot of tourists tremble in their shoes.

The most special is the modern art display that features the hands of the Devil. By arranging the two gardens next to each other, the architect wishes to remind each tourist about the good and the evil, the beauty and the ugliness inside each person.

The Aquarium

When visiting the Crazy House, you will get to visit a very special terrestrial aquarium. The combination of unique drawings and sophisticated carved stone surface has created an impressive and unique space befitting of this spectacular building.

If you are looking forward to a whole lot of eccentric photos during your next summer holiday getaway, the Crazy House is not a place to be missed!
