Being indians, we were mesmerized with most of the hindu idols and protraits inside the temple. I wish there is an idol or portrait of Lod Ganesha the elephant god who removes all obstacles. We usually pray to him before moving on to other idols of protraits.

A beautiful temple which was very colourfully painted. It reminded me of temples I had been to in India and so was nice to wander around although there is not much to see here and a short visit is plenty. Worth going to if you are in the area.

Built by Tamils from Pondicherry, India (brought to Vietnam by French colonialists) - this is about 100 years old. Small but well maintained is mostly patronized by local Vietnamese than Tamils. In fact the priest himself is a Hindu Khmer (appointed by the government). If you are from India or Hindu, don't miss this.

Tucked in the midst of a busy street. If you notice candles & flower vendors then you are there. Even I f you are not spiritual person, enter and enjoy the historical landmark/ architecture.... Just Be respectful of people in the temple.

The temple when in full roar at around 19:00 is a sight to behold with lots of faithfull running around with their offerings. Very worth your time if you are interested in different religions.

After multiple Buddhist temples around China and Vietnam, it was a refreshing change of pace to experience Saigon's small Hindu temple. Like in many of Southeast Asia's temples, one must remove shoes before entering - but otherwise tourists are welcome as long as you are not disruptive. The atmosphere inside is rather peaceful and relaxing, and it made a nice... More

The outside looked great, love all the colours! The inside was small and not that spectacular. I was expecting more.
