This is a beautiful monument, and not far from the War Remnants Museum (right now the location on TripAdvisor is wrong). Striking story and a photo that you have likely seen before of the monk committing suicide in protest of the war via self-immolation. Worth a stop.

An iconic figure from the Vietnam war, the "burning priest" who set himself on fire in protest on how the South Vietnamese government were treating Buddhists in the country.
I know it from the RATM album cover, but still someone to be respected.
A serene place at the intersection to where the event took place all those years ago. Very well kept and worth a look.

I learnt so much. Part of Vietnamese history and such a touching story. However, take a guide with to really learn or you will mainly just look. I had a very good guide. So interesting. Located in district 3. Highly recommend to learn more about Vietnamese history.

This figurative monument is in memoral of Thich Quang Duc, an opposition icon against the South Vietnam regime. The graphic illustration of Duc setting himself in fire has arisen global attention on the corrupt Ngo Dinh Diem regime. The erection of a Duc statue serves as excellent reminder of history.

This monument commemorates the monk who immolated himself near this busy site to protest against the harassment of the Buddhists by the Roman Catholic president and his regime in 1963. Worth a quick visit to know the history of VN

Paying homage to this brave monk who made the ultimate sacrifice by setting himself afire to protest the persecution of Buddhists in Vietnam. I remember reading about this when it happened those many years ago.
