4.5
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Tien Giang Province
See the mix of Vietnamese, Chinese, European and Cambodian architectural styles all in one by visiting Vinh Trang Temple. The 19th century pagoda is on the banks of a canal, and has five buildings and two beautiful gardens. Marvel at the statues of various Buddhas, such as Gautanama and Amitabha, as well as the representations of some boddhisattvas and arahants. Take a walk in the gardens, among many pots with plants, flowers, and decorative and fruit trees, and relax in the serenity of the nature.

  • A memorable place to visit. The place is tidy and well kept. Parking slots are available on the site. The place was not very crowded. You can attend to religious activities without any disturbances from the surroundings.
  • Happy budha is great. Bring your hat. It is usually sunny day.. And this place is like 'Via Mekong Delta tour' If you had a one day tour for mekong river, Maybe you have 30min to take a photo here.
  • Vinh Trang pagoda is a beautiful pagoda in My Tho province. There are three big Buddha statues and lots of history for this old Pagoda. Its nice to explore and learn about Buddhism. Its a must see pagoda if you are visting the Mekong delta.
  • Beautiful historic temple. Has huge statues of sleeping Buddha and happy Buddha. The architectural structure of the pagoda is amazing
  • The statues are enormous. Nice gardens. The inside of the temple was the clear highlight for me. Recomended if you are around!
