Really pretty pagoda located near the Ho Chi Minh museum with a large pond at the bottom. Quite busy but a nice photo opportunity. To actually go inside the pagoda you need to be covered but nonetheless was very nice.

Simple pagoda but you have to be "covered" including men to climb the steps. Not a lot to see set in a pleasant square where you can grab a little shade an refreshment

Slightly away from the old quarter, better if you take a taxi (beware of swindlers). Beautiful place though it's small and over run by tourists. Beautiful temple at the top, def walk up the few steps and take a look. Nothing else much around there...More

Since it is located close to the Ho chin Minh mausoleum it is worth swinging by. It is not worth going all the way just to see this but given its close proximity to all the other tourist attractions it's a nice to see.

A unique pagoda but in my opinion needs a bit of TLC the area around it is in a state of disrepair. It's in the presidential grounds, I'm glad we saw it but also glad we didn't make a special hornet just to see this....More

We visited this one of a kind Pagoda while on a tour at the Ho Chi Minh Memorial. It is very different from other pagoda's visited. Even the Buddha representation inside is unique. A must visit

Worth the visit. It is beautifully restored and you can climb the stairs to see the statue of Budha. It is still used today.
