Mariamman Hindu Temple, Ho Chi Minh City

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. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Ho Chi Minh City fast, fun, and easy.

  • To hear accidentally passing by. The famous Temple looks like a lot of people are not having an affair with the incense of prayer? It's like a very strong incense smell to the ship. Once you have a lot of open spaces will look to take advantage of its citizens.

  • Must see place of Hindu worship even for non Hindus. Portraits in the walls of the temple explain the history and evolution of the Hindu and Tamil connection to Ho Chi Minh City  more »
  • A relatively peaceful and serene place though located in the middle of a city besides a traffic packed road. A glimmer of faith, love and hope is all over the place  more »

  • Amman Temple is 1 of the 3 Hindu Temples in Saigon. Very blessed & powerful Hindu Temple with major followers namely local Vietnamese. Build 200 years ago and still going strong.
  • It’s was nice visit our temple, I come every week to pray god and blessings from god
  • I like marriyaman temple, hear working people name also like this tamil name, palani, murugan, palanisami but he don't understand tamil speak only,
  • The largest Hindu temple in Saigon. Located right in the heart of District 1 in Saigon. Intricate carvings of Hindu Gods outside and inside. Throughout the day, many devotees come to offer their prayers. Walking distance from Ben Thanh area. Highly recommended place to visit.
  • Nice tiny temple, kind people, some hockers out front.
