Phuoc Hai Temple Jade Emperor Pagoda, Ho Chi Minh City

(3.4/5 based on 750 reviews on the web)
Stop by Phuoc Hai Temple Jade Emperor Pagoda, a colorful temple honoring the supreme Taoist god. Built by the Chinese community in 1909, the temple features a large statue of the God of Heavens, with two assistants seated in the central hall taking numerous offerings. Light a candle or burn incense, and observe worshippers reading sutras and socializing in the tropical garden outside the pagoda. Visit the central pond to see the many resident tortoises, which you can feed. Famous for its intensely colored life-size figurines--considered among the finest in the city--the temple serves as a vital and popular religious center.
