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

i went to pray there and stayed for the pooja and the people in the temple were so helpful and kept making sure that I was comfortable. A lot of locals come here to pray. I was given offerings after the pooja and there was coconut water and apples and bananas given to me. Very friendly and accommodating.

Narrow walkway cluttered by street vendors. Nice sculptures and quiet temple. Some Japanese noodle shops in surrounding streets.

I am a temple lover so this little gem is the kind of place that I love to explore... That said, it is a VERY little gem, and there isn't much to explore. It's very tranquil and pretty, but don't expect to be there for very long.

Lovely to look at . But didn't go in as other reviews didn't recommend it. It is easily missed as we walked that street for 2 days and didn't notice it.

It took me two attempts to find this place, but it really wasn't worth the effort. The outside is quite nice, but the inside is nothing special at all. Far better is the nearby Sri Thendayyutthapani temple. I found this by accident and don't know the address, but it isn't far. It's nothing much to look at on the outside,... More

Worth a visit if you're that end of town. The temple is not large, but the style is interesting as it is different to most of the other temples in Saigon.
