My cousin and I accidentally stumbled upon this during our drive around the city. It is a very nice temple with a great atmosphere and beautiful decorations, but there isn't much to do besides have a quick look. If you are in the area, stop by and have a look, but don't make an effort to see it.

Perhaps not worth a visit on its own, but in combination with the nearby Binh Tay Market and historically important Cha Tham Church it's worth a stop. Also a short walk from here is the Quan Am Pagoda (Chùa Ôn Lăng), which for me was the most interesting place of worship in Chinatown.

I came to this temple on a motor bike city tour. it was somewhere I probably wouldn't have gone to on my own, it's the second oldest temple and is a beautiful magical place to visit. Travelling through Asia you can get sick of looking at temples but this one is worth a stop and is quite unique.

It's old and good handcrafts skills, but very small so only half an hour will be done unless you want to do prayer.

This temple offers a great opportunity to observe a functioning Buddhist temple, where practitioners come to burn incense, bow in front of the Buddha statute and pray, as well as many visitors who take pictures....

A spiritual place in major cities. In the crowded place to have a place like this, make me feel very sacred. I feel safe with my family and my friends here. We love this place

This appears to be the largest and oldest in Ho Chi Minh City. It contains many statues and there is a whole lot of incense being burnt (adds to the atmosphere). Despite our having visited many temples during our tour of Indo China, we felt that this was well worth the visit. It is some way outside the centre of... More

Chua Ba Thien Hau temple is one of the oldest history of the Chinese in Ho Chi Minh City. Besides the value of the art of architecture, sculpture, ancient artifacts, it also has a different value, which is not only a place to meet religious needs but also a place to gather and mutual for Vietnamese people
