This is beside an area where a lot sales happen and meeting point- its attractive enough, but just part of overall visit to the Palace.

We found this when we were trying to get to the mausoleum.Very impressive and peaceful - however there was not too many good easy directions to get about the area after visiting the musuem. We also found the mausoleum shuts about 11.30am!

A small pagoda near the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, may not be a place to catch your attraction but since it is so near with the rest, you may opt to have few minutes there to find any interesting stuff.

It is a really small pagoda! You visit it once! And then you have seen it! The history of the pagoda is more interesting than The pagoda!

Just a small Pagoda behind the Mausoleum. OK for a quick visit when visiting the Mausoleum. Can sit around the small lake.

This forms part of the Ho Chi Minh complex. It's not spectacular, but it's nice to see as you're wading through the crowds.

This pagoda deserves a quick look because of its originality. It's on your way when visiting Ho Chi Minh museum or Ho Chi Minh's house. Or just behind the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum. After seeing so many temples, I didn't bother going up to see the inside. I should have because I now read that the godess inside is a... More

We went to see the residence and museum of Ho Chi Minh and along the way we also saw this pagoda when passing by. It's not the best attraction that keeps you up for an hour but it's quite nice to see for a few minutes.
