Arrived at this temple on a Tuesday, 11:30am, to find out that it was closed. Not sure why and there wasn't any reason stated on the closed gates. So my partner and I just admired the view from outside.

This temple is a pretty easy walk from the backpacker district- I went in feeling a little awkward and out of place as the locals were saying their prayers and I felt intrusive- didn't want to take my camera out, but a nice guy walked up to me and my boyfriend and told us we could take as many photos...

This is the only Hindu temple in Ho Chi Minh City, so if you've never seen such thing before just give it a go.

This is a lovely temple with a history of miracles and well worth the visit. Know going in that scammers are at the door pretending to be part of the temple, the are not! If you take anything from them they will demand huge amounts of money from you not when you enter but when you try to leave! After... More

The Hindu temple is small, visitors are asked to remove their shoes before they enter the inner part of the temple. A flower garland to be offered to the gods are provided. the... More

The oldest & famous hindu temple in Saigon, District 1. A very colorful place to visit. Offerings to deities are being sold outside the temple for VND 100,000. Pious vietnamese can be seen inside the temple. Can be found easily too. But take good care of your belongings. Lots of eateries nearby.

Situated near the ben thanh market, the temple exudes peace when u enter. While right outside is teeming busy with cars on the road, peddlers and shops, the minute u step inside, it is calm and peaceful.
