Well maintained temple. Visited here as part of a tour stop. Being Asian, i've been to many temples so this one didnt particularly strike any interest. However, you can write your wishes and have it hung on a coil, not sure what the price is...More

Lovely temple. Very interesting to learn about And witness the monks burning people's wishes to the gods. The temple closes at 1730 As the gods go to sleep at 1800. Worth a visit.

Just walking in gave a sense of peace and wonderment with the beautiful, detailed carvings and statues, with the added bonus of incense. We bought 4 cones for the family, which will, apparently, burn for a month. A must see in Saigon.

Although this place is very popular with tourists, it's a calm oasis in the ever busy Ho Chi Minh city. Don't forget to get your own smoking spiral with your wish and hang it under the ceiling!

Impressive Chinese temple, part of our guided tour of the city we spent over half an hour here, took many photos and made an offering. Our guide was very knowledgable which helped us understand the significance and history of the various parts of the building

was expecting a crowd but surprisingly quiet.. architecture is old and probably qorth just a visit to pray to ma zu goddess... chinese believe that you can pray for partners or babies.. pray away

Not being of this religion, this temple felt like many of the others. Plenty to ornate details and a nice peaceful place to pop into if you're in the area.
