Be informed of the religious history at Temple of the Buddha's Relic (Xa Loi pagoda). Built back in 1956, the area has an interesting history as a previous headquarters for Buddhism in South Vietnam. Notice the architecture has distinct Chinese influences such as the statue of Quan Âm holding a vial of elixir on one hand and gesturing removing obstacles on the other. Inside is a shrine dedicated to the Gautama Buddha with various other illustrations of Buddhist history. Be sure to visit the 32 meter pagoda which is the highest tower in Vietnam.

  • A decent Buddhist temple with a large Buddha and a 7 tier pagoda...well maintaimed garden and close enough to the center. Becomes a worthy place to visit with some digging into its history 
  • On the way back to Nha Trang-Bangkok, for one night we stopped again, Ho Chi Minh City. Well, not to be bored, decided to make a long walk around the city. Came to the pagoda by chance, because it is hidden and the houses and trees. You can make several photo and observe people, well, everything.
