This is the oldest Pagoda in Ho Chi Minh city, I think so. Really busy in the first day and 15st day of Lunar Calendar (all Vietnamese use Lunar Calendar). We visited it in another day, so not busy. The architecture was wonderful and traditional! Love it!

Amazing Pagoda
Jul 2019 • Couples
My wife and I happened to visit this Pagoda during a service which made our experience very memorable. We were brought here by a friend of ours who is a local. After she gave us a short history lesson, she showed us the proper etiquette to give thanks and enter the Pagoda. We purchased flowers and incense as our offerings. We proceeded to each statue/ god, gave a small offering, bowed three times and then prayed for what we wished upon in the world. We continued up the stairs and entered this awe inspiring Pagoda where there was a service in progress. We were able to sense the energy of the monks and the Pagoda itself. The ringing of the bells and the pounding of the drums was incredible. An amazing experience and we are very grateful to our friend Uyen who was thoughtful to bring us to this Pagoda.

One of the largest, genuine pagoda in HCMC
Feb 2018 • Friends
Quick uber trip to D3 to visit the Vinh Nghiem pagoda. And we weren't disappointed.

(There's a few other things to visit close by like the War Remnants museum, pink cathedral and Women museum etc and Mam Vietnamese restaurant).

Very spiritual, take your shoes off and you can wander all around it. You are able to taller photos - but don't be obvious in front of everyone.

If you got a good spiritual thought, like we all did, make a small donation (from 5,000VND TO 50,000 VND). Even light your own incense.

When leaving (or to get there) you can follow the river across the road...

Wonderful, and Spiritual Temple.
Jan 2018 • Solo
one of the best temples to visit in Ho Chi Minh City, as you walk through the framed gateway ,take a little glance to the left , and you will see a cage of birds ,you can buy one to let it free ,a small token of Budaism belief . In front of you is a large standing monument of Buddha and you take the stairs to the large pagoda ,beautifully decorated, i also like the large thunder pots,Ding vessels as you walk to the temple entrance , Take your shoes off and step into ,a wonderful and spiritual temple , so ornate and amazingly decorate , iam not kidding this temple is one of the best you will come across. Huge statues of Buddha and reliefs dominate the inner shrine, with its offerings laid out in front, carry on walking around the back and there are more statues and paintings,offerings some very old indeed , The whole temple is so beautifully laid out and adorned with spiritual relief ,such a calming and peaceful place ,it would be a shame to miss it ,

Beautiful and spiritual pagode
Dec 2017
Firstly, if you are a tourist - Vinh Nghiem Pagoda is better than Jade Emperor Pagoda. I have no idea why the other one is so popular with tourists, it's quite dirty & has many pigeons.

Vinh Nghiem is very beautiful and spiritual. You can take off your shoes and explore inside. You will see monks praying to a gold statue of the Buddha.

Take a walk along the river and discover this small magical place.
