  • It is a relative new temple and the building is well maintained. It is typical in design of a Chinese temple, although the present of a large bell is not so common. The pagoda is interesting but it was closed to visitor on that day so I can't comment. It is not too far from the downtown so the taxi fare is OK. We got the front desk to write the name of the temple and the place we intended to go after that in Vietnamese so as to avoid an problem with language.
  • My favorite pagoda I visited while here. Lots to see and explore and wasn't busy at all when I went
  • Very beautiful, peaceful pagoda in a busy city. Religious place for Buddhist
  • Historic pagoda. Good temple structures. May be annoyed to buy incents. A pagoda for sightseeing than a spiritual practicing address.
  • Although I'm from a country with Chinese, budish culture which I always see temple, pagoda. But still like to snap snap some photos about temples when I overseas. For the past I have visited several temples in Saigon, so I not going in fir this one. Overall it look nice.
