A temple for a worrier.

From outside one does not realise what lies within. It looks like an old place. But one is fascinated having seen the altar and the artifects all around. The miniatures really... read more

Very small place with a small entry fee. 50k vnd. Not sure it's worth it unless you are extremely interested in the temples. Down the street is a bigger one with no entrance fee.

On your way to the Presidential Palace or another part of the city, stop by and relax here. It's well shaded and beautiful. It's also very inexpensive. Only 10,000 vnd to go in. Basically .90 cents USD

Quiet temple near the West Lake. Beautiful architecture. Wonderful place to explore. Respect what you see, you will walk away feeling like you had just been blessed.

With no one -- and little literature -- to really explain what's going on inside, this was a vague visit that left little impression. Some of the artefacts within are interesting. More ambience is available at 87 Ma May.

With its value, if you are near West Lake, you should have a look, pray for peace in your heart. Also, after that, you can buy a tour ticket around West Lake or continue to walk and visit Tran Quoc Pagoda near Quan Thanh temple
