This Buddhist monk made the ultimate sacrifice for his beliefs and persecution of his people. This memorial is a fitting tribute in the memory of this monk. The garden setting is just stunning. A must see when visiting Saigon.

This is the site of the famous burning monk from 1963 that was almost not captured by the Western press. Whereas Gandhi practiced nonviolent civil disobedience, the Vietnamese's buddists were too frustrated with the minority Catholic president and felt the need to resort to more...More

There's not too much to see here, but it's worth the trip. An interesting and yet sad part of Vietnamese history. It's also a good opportunity to get a little bit out of the downtown area and see more of the outskirts of HCMC.

The actual place he did it is marked by a small stupa and is not very remarkable at all. On the opposite corner there's a monument, but it's a bit neglected and there's not really much to see. Not sure what I expected, but this...More

I was only 7 when the incident took place but I remember from early childhood the horrible imagery on TV of the self-immolation of the monk. That imagery along with the imagery of the napalm girl and the execution of the Viet Cong during the...More
