  • Atmospheric little temple in Chinatown. Yes it's a bit shabby, yes it's chaotic, but it is what it is. We had a guide which probably helped make it more than just a photo op. 
  • Not a huge complex and not particularly pristine but worth a visit only if you're nearby. The wooden carvings added in the early 20th century are wonderful but hard to see! 
  • so, it is very history, the sight so nice. you can see the art history, the sight so felling and beautiful 
  • Oldest Chinese Temple in Saigon, soonly built when Chinese community moved to this land (1760). Thiên Hậu is a deity of traditional Chinese religion, who is revered in the southern maritime provinces of China and in overseas Chinese communities. They built this Temple and pray her for protecting them in new land reclamation. Please come here if you visit China town, a Temple - must - see in Saigon.
  • Great Pagoda to see dragon dance, lion dance and a lot of activities to celebrate lunar new year.
  • Well preserved anciet temple. Watching people do their prayers and light up the incense coils and hang from the ceiling is very peaceful in a otherwise hectic city
  • Less colour than other temples in the area, owing to its age but really nice to look at and walk around
  • this is good place to come at weekend
