“Touristy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Touristy, not of much interest. Overall underwhelming. The best thing I can say about the One Pillar Pagoda is that it was near the HCM Mausoleum so it was not far out of our way.

“One-pillar Pagoda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

A small but the oldest pagoda in VN. The architect of this pagoda is unique. It's worth visiting when you are on the way to visit Ho Chi Minh Museum

“Not very impressive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

A rather small and unattractive pagoda. The only thing special about it is may be it was erected on a large pillar.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Very crowded, lots of vendors getting on your back, bus load of kids who just visited the mausoleum.
I was very disappointed as I was looking forward to see it, quite small. Not worth visiting.

“Just an altar...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Wasn't much to see, just making sure I covered my places of interest count for the day. Its an Altar in the midst of the pond where people come to pray and do their offerings.
