Worth seeing, know more about local respect to god of whales, need to negotiate with taxi drivers for getting there in the shortest way.

We entered the first part of the building and there was a huge whale reconstructed from the bones. It was impressive because it wasn't suspended in the air, you were walking next to it. After this we walked into the temple. The man working in the temple very nicely stopped the work he was doing to walk us through. We prayed at the alter, viewed the whale bones that were stored in the back, and he let us get up and close with the boats they were making. In a few weeks they were going to have a festival and release the boats onto the ocean. This man was in the process of making a third boat. They were beautiful and very detailed.
Don't forget to admire the beautiful trees in the courtyard.

All in all, this place was definitely worth a visit.

bathrooms - not great but functional
no food

It's not so far away from Mui Ne (nor Phan Thiet city), it's quite easy to hire a scooter there if you know how to ride one (and be aware of the citizen people there, they ain't seemed like good riders at all). It's placed on a small street - Van Thuy Tu street that you might need to look up on the map for more than twice to see where it is. By the way It's worth a try, 10,000vnd and the security guy there are quite friendly too! (0.5 dollars for a ticket).

This temple was built in 1762 to honour a legendary whale, it's skeleton is 22 meters long thought to be the biggest in South East Asia, it's very neat to see.
Hard to find but well worth the effort, there are also other culture relics in the museum, I recommend a visit here.
