It was interesting

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.

We made a brief stop at this temple - a little dirty and dated, but an active place of worship for locals. There wer many burning incense sticks and coils. 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.

This was the closest temple to my hotel (on Bui Vien) so I decided to walk there and take a look. It's free and no one hassled me for money or asked for a donation. It's quite a small place and not really that impressive but it's worth a look if you're nearby. You could combine it with a walk... More

A pleasant surprise to find a Hindu temple in the bustling heart of HCMC. Good to see Vietnamese maintain the temple well and pray with devotion, using rituals one would see commonly in India. Also the temple has been completely localized, with everything written in Vietnamese. Amazing.

It was about 5 in the afternoon and when we got there, the place looks like I can't explain it but there is something or a feeling/ force that doesn't want us to go inside. The street and the people seem different. I just took a picture.

It is refreshing to see an active Hindu culture in HCMC. The temple is in fantastic condition and in a very central location. Be aware of the scammers outside, who have no affiliation with the temple whatsoever. Once you are inside, they are incredibly hospitable and do not push you for money. If you want a prayer performed for you,... More
