This is a lovely quiet place to reflect on past and present Vietnam. A cooler setting from the outside heat and as other temples and pagodas are, peaceful and well cared for.

Great temple, totally feels like youre in a temple when youre inside. If youre in asia you basically have to go to every temple and not be bored. They are all completely unique and fun places to be for hours on end.

This is a really beautiful and old temple, located on a busy road next to Westlake. The main feature of the temple is the giant statue within, which locals tend to pet for a long time, hoping to gain good fortune. Ticket is 10000 VND (roughlt half a USD).

We went there with a tour guide and enjoyed quite a lot. I recommend going earlier before the other tour buses, this way you can get good photos

This temple seemed very old and it was very beautiful. There were a lot of visitors enjoying the place, but it was still peaceful and there were benches to sit on and relax and observe the area. Very beautiful temple and great for taking photos!
