Nice, but nothing special. The day that we went here, there was so much smoke from the incense and also the worshippers were also burning some paper things in the centre of the temple. This temple is not the place to be if you have breathing problems! It was a stop on our HCM City Tour.

Its size isn't big but I loved every inch of the temple. The spiral inscent's ashes may be a bit annoying if you're not wearing sunglasses though.

Must see in Ho Chi Minh ! Good point is that the building has just been renovated in January 2015. Furthermore, quite central if you want to walk around there

If your touring around HCMC this is worth a stop. In here you can feel your blood pressure dropping. A peaceful spot in the middle of a very busy city.

A beautiful temple in the middle of Chinatown, dedicated to the Chinese Ocean Goddess who saved her family members from drowning. The temple is an oasis of calm in an otherwise frenetic city. Unlike a lot of temples in Vietnam, there were a lot of people worshipping, praying and burning incense. The incense ranged from single sticks in vases to... More

We saw this attraction only because we booked a one-day tour with Tiger Tours, and this was one area we visited while enjoying HCM City riding on the back of motorbikes. Since we had seen many temples already, we did not spend a lot of time here, but that was not needed. Because it is not a crowded tourist attraction,... More

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.
