It is a clean and nice looking temple, however it is not impressive; very normal and common throughout SEA. We are of the view that it is a place one can go if you run out of place to visit in HCMC. It is out...More

Stayed at the nearby le duy grand hotel and walked a couple of blocks on our first day in this bustling city. Motor bikes everywhere and noise and heat all around. On the corner glimpsed the gates and tall pagoda with a few people preparing...More

We went there today and I really liked the atmosphere. It’s a bit hidden but I really recommend to visit it. I found it very impressive!

Not especially impressive, but still nice and big considering it's inside the city centre. A very nice lady borrowed us her typical vests for the cerimony so we could go in just about when the religious service was about to begin.

Nice Pagoda but currently undergoing renovations. Good for a quick visit and get some photos. Bit out the way but not hard to find.

This is a short trek from the central area but easy enough to reach on foot. The effort isn't really worth it though as there's not too much to see in this small, run down pagoda. Needs some proper paint and attention.

The temple has a few sections, including the pagoda, and some outdoor areas. The upper floors of the pagoda is accessible after a voluntary donation. You have to take your shoes off to enter, but it is quite dirty upstairs. It is about 4 floors...More
