It is situated in the heart of the city and very close to Ben Thanh Market and Ha Hien Hotel ( strongly recommended). The temple is open to devotees and tourists from 7.30am. It is managed by a family ( Father & son) and it is a good place to seek some peace and meditate if you have the time.... More

Not far from the centre of town. Fairly interesting, quiet, peaceful, but by no means the best temple you will go to. BEWARE JOSTICK RIPOFF ! You will be given these as you enter - light one up / have a think etc. When you leave they will jump on you demanding payment and were quite aggressive. Ruined the peaceful,... More

Busy temple in a busy street leading to the market. Fascinating to see the people practicing their fate in everyday life in hustling and bustling Saigon. Not a serene atmosphere, the temple is also busy on the inside with worshippers and tourists alike.

The guide thought we should stop by and check out this temple. It was okay but nothing special. It was very busy. As it was Chinese New year time here.

Caution while walking under the hung burning coils - the ashes can fall or you, potentially getting debri in your eyes and or burning your clothes. It is apparently very... More

I just accidentally passed by this temple while walking around. Nothing really special. But worth a loom if you are already around the area.

Our guide felt this is a temple we should see, so we agreed and it certainly was half an hour of tranquility in the centre of Saigon

Very calm temple with few Indian gods . Mariamman looking great. Fully managed by Vietnamese. It was built by Tamil people from Pondicherry. If you visit on Friday you can see lots of Indians visiting here. Must visit for Tamils and Hindus

Very famous Hindu temple near Ben Thanh market, known as the "Chua Ba or Lady Temple" by vietnamese, with a lot of Non Hindu believers. As is the case for a number of prosperous temples, it is now managed by the People's Committees.
