All you need is 10 minutes and you've seen all there is to see. Pop in if you're in the neighborhood.

If you are near would recommend stopping by, but would not go out of the way unless you really need a couple of minutes of silence. Whatever you do, do not take anything from anyone outside (Lavender Joss/Incense Sticks etc.), I did and had to pay 100 Dong for the pleasure. There are plenty of Incense sticks inside and can...

It was by chance we landed at this temple. We had gone to the Tau Dan Park for a stroll and on our way back to the hotel on Pham Hong Thai Rd. took a detour. We had an argument as to which road to follow and after backtracking one, came in front of this temple. Looking at the Gopuram... More

We were amazed and surprised to see the dedication, cleanliness of this temple. You will find Vietnamese people praying with the same dedication as Indians do!

This classic 19th C temple was built by the Chettiars, a rich trading community from South India. It is dedicated to the Goddess Mariamman. Like most temples it is rich in detailing and colour. Sculptures of various goddesses adorn its walls and lintels besides the main deity in the centre. Though just by a busy street it's an oasis of... More

This is just on the side of a street in the main part of the city and is always a bit hectic outside. Nice to go into though, and very welcoming. Lovely smell of incense. Great Japanese eatery over the road too!

Being from India, the notion of temples is very different. The architecture of this temple is nice and very indian, but the insides are reflection of how cultures get amalgamated. Hindu deities are not recognisable from the chines traditional God and Goddesses and the place is melting pot of Indian and Chinese heritages. I loved this aspect , rest the... More

I visited this on 28 March, very close to Ben Thanh Market, would recommend everyone to visit. The main deity of this temple is Goddess Mariamman, another aspect of Parvathy. As the mother of universe, Parvathy is amma and prayed as Amman. Flanked by her guardians - Maduraiveeran to her left and Pechiamman to her right. The wooden stairs, on... More

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
