Well worth visiting, make sure you go with a tour or guide, rather than wander on your own, so much interesting history in and about this place. Don't forget to light some incense and make a wish for someone important to you.

Offered wishes and prayers by lighting an incense cone. Just think of it as lighting a birthday candle. May my birthday wish come true... Got one wish answered: lost my iPad ( with all my mementos in it), got a new & free upgraded iPad replacement with iCloud back up. Many more wishes to go...lol!

At here, most of the Vietnam-Chinese people stay around Quan Nam (District 5) will come to this temple to pray! They have been practice this culture since their great grand father came to Vietnam and build their home here.

I especially liked the ponds with the turtles and the fish in front of the temple. Inside you nearly get dizzy with all the smoke of the candles put up for prayers. A very local place.

There are tons of incense burning, the beauty of this temple is in the details all around. Look up at the roof lines, lots of characters and beauty.

Took a long taxi ride to China Town to check this out. It's a nice tempel, however (unfortunately) for me it's nothing special as an attraction.
