We walked here, comfortable walking distance from centre of Ho Chi Minh City but not worth the effort at present. There are major renovations in progress and the place looks like it desperately needs it. Look forward to seeing the temple on our next visit...More

This is a short trek from the central area but easy enough to reach on foot. The effort isn't really worth it though as there's not too much to see in this small, run down pagoda. Needs some proper paint and attention.

The temple has a few sections, including the pagoda, and some outdoor areas. The upper floors of the pagoda is accessible after a voluntary donation. You have to take your shoes off to enter, but it is quite dirty upstairs. It is about 4 floors...More

This temple is smaller than other ones in HCM (in my opinion). Also there are not so many tourists. So you can enjoy tranquil atmosphere. The tower is somewhat tall and other architectures and designs are interesting too.

We arrived just before noon to ‘peer’ through window as closed . If this is good as it gets its not worth it.

Small and Tranquil temple. No one speaks English there. Made a quick visit and left. Pagoda was not open at that time.

This was quite the sight to see on a sunny day. Very impressive architecture so it's great for that. Unfortunately most of it was closed when I went.

We went 4 January, 2017 and walked a fair distance to see this temple. Unfortunately for us it was closed for the lunch period (12:30 - 2:00) when we got there so we went across the street and enjoyed a beverage while waiting. Once it...More
