Ba thien hau pagoda is a Chinese style temple located in the Cho Lon district of Ho Chi Minh City. Although the pagoda is small but it has a unique architecture of chinese style. On the fifteenth day of each month (lunar calendar), people come here to pray for their families.

It's very small, but beautiful, not only a touristic attraction, the locals visit the place regularly.

Nestled in amongst tiny back streets, is the Thien Hau Pagoda, which is dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea. Exquisite carvings adorn the roofline, and there is some lovely artwork on the walls. Prayer incense in huge coils hang from the roof, and drop ash everwhere. Quite a lovely building, with a rich history.

A temple with very unusual ceramic figurines surrounding it. As with all temples, plenty of burning incense sticks. Lots of wooden caving inside. Takes about 30 mins to do it justice. Well worth a stop.

The temple is located near Binh Tay market. So, if you are in the area, you can visit. This is an old Chinese temple with very interesting wood carvings. If you are into ancient / old architecture or history, this would be a good place to visit.

This temple has very cool ceramic friezes all over. Like nothing else we saw is SE Asia. Not a long stop but definitely worth a look. Dedicated to the Woman of the Sea.

We were taken to The Chua Ba Thien Hau Pagoda (The Pagoda of the Lady Thien Hau) by our guide. I found it very very interesting. To be honest because of our limited time in there I preferred to walk around on my own taking photos. In hindsight when doing tours like this it would have been better to read... More

We enjoyed this smaller ornately decorated temple. Our guide explained about the lady of the temple, and good luck for sailors. If you are in the area, give it a look.
