  • First of all, everything is relative. It's another temple, nothing special if you look for history or monumentality but a sight worth visiting in Can Tho. The ambience and colours have something to it!
  • It's small enough to whip through in a couple of minutes, but it's really very nice. The giant incense coils hanging from the ceiling are marvellous.
  • My favorite temple in Vietnam. So peaceful. I go there daily during my stays in Can Tho.
  • Small, active, temple. Hadn't seen anything like this in SE Asia. Completely different to the temples in Korea where we live and anything we had seen in Cambodia or Laos. Small but interesting. Not much in the area hence the 4 stars being given in relation to what else is on offer. Not a must see, but free to wander in if you are in the area.
  • Very nice temple to visit and enjoy .
