Small, but nice

Small temple, close to the backpacker district. Very interesting to see the way the local Vietnamese pray to these Hindu deities.

I was amazed; there is a furniture shop that hide inside this temple. You have to walk along the alley toward SaiGon Center, look for an old blue door, u will find the shop. They sell great furnitures of 40s tp 70s era. I love to collect vintage items and in my opinion this shop does sell legit stuffs, unlike... More

I personally make it a point of visiting and seeking blessings at a Hindu Temple if there is one in the city I am visiting. Though had a awesome feeling at Temple but must say temple isn't being managed properly

Not a style of architecture that you would expect to see in Sai Gon. Worth a visit. Take the time to talk to the caretakers for some interesting history of the building.

This lovely Hindu Temple is not far from the backpackers area, very ornate and is free entry. Has English signs so you can read the history of the origins. Great to see the locals worshipping in the temple, I can highly recommend this to visit.

As a Hindu it was nice to see a Hindu temples in the middle of Vietnam. Not exactly the most grand temple. Something to note is that the locals have adapted the praying methods of other East Asian religions to pray at the temple. It was interesting to see such a blending of culture with religion. Not necessarily a must... More

It's kind of surprise to see a 200 years old Hindu Temple in the middle of Saigon town center. The Lady was very helpful to explain to us about the temple.
