In reviewing this as a tourist, not a worshipper, I must say that other than the fairly impressive central hall and grand exterior, there’s not much else to to see. Probably still worth seeing but don’t expect to expect more than 15 minutes here.

One of my favorite vietnamese pagodas. Very tranquil. You will see some worshipers praying and some monks too. The place where you can watch some daily religious ceremonies.
