“Gorgeous Outside; Giant Horses Inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This Temple is small, but surprisingly serene.The inside boasts some neat art and 2 giant horse sculptures. There is also a large replica of a Junk boat and some sweet lanterns! This Temple is also free if you go as the sun is setting (it was when we went anyway)

“Beautiful temple worth a visit, a sanctuary in the Old Town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

This temple is in one of the main streets, very pretty. You need to have purchased tickets to get in worth buying a set of tickets which get you into the main bits in town. In this temple be aware you quickly go through to museum so will cost second ticket. Very tranquil. Pretty flowers and caged birds. Some of the planter areas quite interesting. Worth a visit

“A lively and Colourful Temple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This place struck me as very Chinese in style. As the festival of Tet was fast approaching, there were plenty of flowers and lanterns decorating the place. Tet is the Vietnamese word for Chinese New Year.The temple is over 200 years old and has been well preserved.

Full of beautiful things from furniture to the hundred birds in the pylons. Very informative introduction to the heritage of the house and also the confusious cup

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Fascinating, and loved the gorgeous mosaic floors. Nice place, and a pleasant interlude. Dress appropriately (i.e. no shorts, halter tops or bare arms).
