Located near Ben Thanh Market. It's a very small Hindu temple. Can make a circle within 1 minute. Entrance was impressive but that's about it. I wasn't sure if I was allowed to take pictures inside the temple or not. There were many small sculptures on the wall, different Hindu gods, but few English translation. A bit disappointed. Not worth... More

Excellent Hindu temple with the peace and decorum of a temple which is popular with the local devotees. The priests are friendly and caring for foreign visitors

The temple is small. You won't recon that you have passed by for view times. It is located near the market. The front of the temple is full with people selling some stuffs for praying.

There's no problem walking in and looking round this temple located just round the corner from the Ben Thanh covered market. A small slice of India in the centre of Saigon!

We were very surprised to find Hindu Temples in the busy city center. The stereo type is how Hindu temples are being workshiped in a country where Confucianism, Buddhism, Toaism, Catholic are practiced. Officially more than 1/3 of the population does not practice any of the major religions. We are delighted to see the hindu temples in HCMC are so... More

Quiet and ornate is how I would describe this temple. There were very few people using it for prayer. It seems to be well maintained and it is ornate with many decorative figures for Vishnu and Shiva.

While beautiful and very different from its surroundings, I only stayed a few minutes. All signs are in Vietnamese, and since I'm terrible at understanding the language, I wasn't sure where I was allowed to go and when I should or shouldn't remove my shoes. I didn't not want to be disrespectful, so rather than take a chance wandering around,... More
