“One of several temples in town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

This is one of the four temples we visited and worth the effort, a guide is helpful but also easy to do by yourself. Not a big area so easy to get around lovely smells as you pass through and not very busy most of the time.

“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.
