Paying homage to this brave monk who made the ultimate sacrifice by setting himself afire to protest the persecution of Buddhists in Vietnam. I remember reading about this when it happened those many years ago.

This monument represents one of the most historical moments in Vietnamese history. From my childhood, I remember the iconic photo of a burning monk, but it was only when I visited the monument last month that I truly understood the background of the event.

I could feel the emotion of the event from the way the tour guide explained every detail. We’re glad to have taken a tour of the city including the Thich Quang Duc monument, with an official guide to give us a better perspective of Vietnam history.

This tour was planned to cover all landmarks in Ho Chi Minh City. The guide was well aware about the history and facts about the city. He made us walk through all points. He also recommend places of interest that can be covered depending on interest.

The monument is a work of art, highly stylized but still somber. I found the actual sculptures quite impressive and evocative. Absolutely felt like an important place to visit.

The 1963 Burning Monk Memorial
Nov 2019
The 1963 Burning Monk Memorial is a very important time in Vietnam history. I walked to the memorial and it was worth it took me and hour from hotel. The memorial is on a corner and it is really beautiful and maintained well with offerings.

As soon as i discovered that there was a monument to this monk i had to go and see it for myself as i grew up during the Vietnam War and remember the famous photo of the monk burning in the street. The monument is really well sculptured showing the flames of the fire as he was burning. There is lots of information about this monk in the compound.
