  • Temple that honors option. The legs are kept in drawers behind o you call to prayer and light the incense. There are temples in two buildings.

  • The small temple is rather unimpressive. On one of our last days in Vung Tau we pass it! the construction of the temple began in 1820. In the year of the Dragon. Then continued in the next few years. In the first, you can find a whale, made up! Somewhat hidden, you can find the skeleton of a whale. You have only an idea of the size. In three cases, you will find the remains! On the walls paintings with whales! Something mystical! Hidden on the site we found connected with a large hall with original parts a more worship. Probably for religious events. We saw young people who sampled the dragon dance, just as their costumes here! You can visit more places of worship. These are very well maintained! A small donation is recommended. There are closed containers! in 1991, the Minister of culture and information was: he paid tribute to this small ensemble as national cultural historical monument!
