The magic of Cholon, still intact compared to Saigon where the magic has gone. you will find in Cholon great temples and this is one of them. Probably the most important one. You really need to go there!

I really liked it here. So yes, you can see it all within 10 minutes but it's a nice snippet of Chinese culture and their beliefs. It's best to be respectful when visiting this building as there was worshipping taking place when we were there. Learn something new everyday!

This is a lovely example of a very old chinese temple and is well worth the visit. However, the crowds of both tourists and locals coming to pray was almost too much.

A real cultural trip for us! I didn't expect to see any remains of historical and Chinese temple in the city. A rare find! It was close to a busy main road which was packed with motorcyclists on the move. I could hear the noises from their running motors... However when I was inside I could experience peace and quiet....

We liked the altar verymuch. The sound of school children next door added a different atmosphere to the solemnity within. Our guide Ms Trinh requested the attendant to light an insence coil. The insence coils when hung from the top enchors comes down like a cone and is supposed to keep burning for more then a week. I was attracted... More
