We stumbled upon this particular temple after seeing many in the same day (mistake) - this one, however was well worth the effort. A traditional layout with incense abounding throughout. Well maintained and empty when we visited which made it easier to work your way...More

We arrived at this temple on the first day of the lunar calendar which meant it was very busy, It is a Chinese temple and i loved the whole atmospher, from the incense candles to the chanting. A must visit in Ho Chi Minh.
