Mariamman hindu temple, Ho Chi Minh City
(3.7/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Dedicated to the goddess of strength, Mariamman hindu temple is said to work wonders for Hindus who worship the goddess within its walls. The colorful 19th-century temple boasts numerous statues of Hindu deities, both in its exterior and interior. Admire the sacred images of Shiva, Brahma, Kali, Vishnu and other gods and goddesses crowding around the walls and rooftops. The scent of joss sticks, lilies, and jasmine--the most popular offerings--fills the air once you enter. In the center of the temple stands a statue of Mariamman, with two guardians by her side. Notice the two lingams--phallic-shaped representations of Shiva--in front of her.

  • Nice place, don't buy incense, there is a fraud to selling the incense on the left side of temple.
  • Don't go out of your way... But if you're in the neighbourhood worth a pop in
  • Very nice Hindu temple, very surprised to find one in Vietnam, which has a long history. Very well preserved and restorations continuing, worth a look.
  • Nice place for traveler
  • Cool temple.
