Simple yet elegant temple.

Lovely Hindu temple ,similar to those in Malaysia and Singapore. If you're there early you can join the Pooja and have some of the offerings .

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.

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.

Though there are very few Indians living in Saigon this Hindu Temple is a landmark. During an evening Aarti(Prayer) I did see mostly Vietnamese attending. Many natives of Vietnamese do follow Hinduism and visit this temple regularly

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