Visit at the Ba Thien Hau Temple

I was impressed with the building which is a very old age Chinese pagoda. The structure is impressive and sometimes surprising, It is a very holy place.

The first thing that struck me here is the amount of incense around and there were parts where I found it breathing difficult. That said it is an really nice little temple with a lot of interesting features and history. The carved statues are really intricate as well as the ornate roof. The temple itself is not very big but... More

My wife and I attended the Lady of the Sea Temple with a tour guide, which was a bonus. The history of the temple was just amazing. It was the best temple we visited while in Ho Chi Minh City.

This distinct Chinese temple is situated in the old Chinatown area of Ho Chi Minh City. It is not a huge complex. It is nestled in between shops and businesses. This temple is dedicated to the Chinese deity Thien Hau who protects seafaring communities in most of Southeast Asia. One of the attraction in this complex is the porcelain tiles... More

My daughter and I went here with a trusted guide. This is in Cho Lon, right near the famous Cho Lon market. The temple is dedicated to the lady of the sea. We lit candles and prayed for the dead. The space is small, but had a spiritual sense about it. It is very smokey. There were many active worshippers... More
