  • There are a lot of facts in a Buddhist might have looked like our country section. What is the difference between a few of the things and the ancestors of the mural.

  • With eyes open, so when I went to the market the Tintin until lunch-time a little spare time, tourism in the area and a map, so walking is headed. Located less than a 10 minute walk and Canal, large building so idon't even from a distance. We proceeded to incense at the entrance, but don't know how to worship through that remain. A good place to explore if you have time, I think.

  • The pagoda to and pretty. But the point is there are too many sales people to disturb guests. The most beautiful Buddha statue of Buddha in the middle of the temple is filled with majestic Buddhist around.

  • 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.
