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.

Interesting temple as this is the only Hindu temple of all Saigon. You will probably pass by, so if you see it around you stop and have a look!

I am a Hindu and come from the land of temples, gods and goddesses, that is India. I was quite delighted to find the temple, just a doorstep away from our hotel. The temple is built in a classic south Indian style, with a gopuram (temple tower) at the entrance. The temple has a large inner sanctum, which houses the... More

We were badgered to go in by a guy outside who gave the impression he was somehow involved with the temple. He gave us some incense sticks as we went in. As we left he told us we owed 100k dong for the sticks. Then he said "each". I handed the money over without thinking about it. It's only about... More

Nothing really worth seeing of any significance unless you are a Hindu. Interesting building, some carvings and statuary, a lot of bright colours and not much else. I didn't find it a haven of tranquility either. 10 minutes tops is all it needs and only if you are passing this way.

Whenever I am in its neighborhood, I linger some moments inside this place. It's small, looks better from the outside.

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
