Mariamman hindu temple, Ho Chi Minh City

(3.7/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • The current Hindu temple near Ben Tan. When visiting you should pay attention to the time and availability of the break.

  • I loved the carvings and the strong colours on the facad above the entrance. This kind of temples you don't often see outside India. If you are staying nearby it's worth walking passed. You can pop in...  more »
  • 這座美麗的印度廟位於濱城市場下方不遠處。 可以給遊客進去參觀, 不過要脫鞋子, 入去挺漂亮的, 有時間可以一去。  more »

  • 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.
