Halal muslim places in Saigon Ho Chi Min City
Dec 2019 • Couples
Visited Saigon for the day during our cruise trip across south East Asia

Did my research before we got to Saigon and found this mosque - central and near Sheraton hotel and the high end shops.

Lovely little place. Was quite and serene the day we visited and a hot hot day
Myself and hubby prayed our zuhr prayers with ease.
Wudu provision for both men and women

Nice courtyard where we rested under a tree shade.
There was a Muslim women selling fresh squeezed orange juices and some small snacks. Was nice and friendly. Had no trouble from anyone.

We didn’t eat outside the mosque even though there was 2 halal restaurants close by

We also found other halal places other side - close to the main outside market. See photos for the street where these shops were. Had a good choice of Muslim apparel shops and halal food places. Friendly people.

Bought some head scarfs and tried halal pho (noodles)

MASJID / Mosque Ho Chi Min Saigon
Dong Du street
Jan 2020 • Business
My favorite place in Ho Chi minh is Dong Du street that has this mosque and 2 halal resto nearby. This is very Asia typical mosque. With the big pool for ablution/ wudhu for men.
The wudhu place for women however copy more to the arabic / Turkish style. With the sittings. The wudhu place for women is just build new i think around 2015 maybe. Because I'm very often visit Vietnam from around 2012. First there was no separate wudhu for women. But after that they build it. It's in the left side of the stairs, on ground floor.
I think the keeper of this mosque should be highly appreciated. As they keep this mosque running well.
Before, everytime visit Saigon i was staying in Sheraton mostly, this mosque is just right next to Sheraton. But now i used staying in small hotel in front of this mosque. The window has direct view to this mosque that bring peace.
As i see this mosque actually have 2 floor. But bottom floor i dont know from where to access it and it's so sad that bottom floor seems not maintained? because it's quite big and beautiful place .
If anyone visit,please kindly donate generously for this mosque. There is box for donation on the women area. I dont know on the men area, i guess there should be too.

Good Mosque in the city center (District 1)
Dec 2019
I was staying at Sheraton Saigon which almost next door to this beautiful Mosque. I happen to walk on the street right outside of the hotel when I saw this beautiful Mosque. If you are Muslim then this would be a great place to Pray when in HCMC or if you are not Muslim at least you should visit this beautiful Mosque.

Beautiful Mosque in the Subcontinental Style
Aug 2019
A very pretty mosque in the middle of the bustling city, unfortunately there were restrictions on women seeing anything beyond the small women's section, and then when we sat outside in the courtyard, were harassed by some fellow trying to sell us herbal hair rejuvenating product and who was extolling the evils of pork (we weren't eating pork or hadn't said anything).

Friday Prayers
Aug 2019 • Friends
Dropped a Friend here for Friday prayers.. there’s a couple of street stalls outside the mosque selling halal food but be wary if ur not sure if truly halal.. some stalls just have the word ‘halal’ but are handled by non- Muslim ladies..

A Little Interesting
Aug 2019 • Family
A nice Mosque in a quiet spot however we were not really encouraged to enter possibly due to the time, 12 noon on a Friday. In fact one individual was quite bluntly suggesting that we should grab some "Halal" lunch and leave him to his prayers.

Since the Muslim population is very small here. This is one of the few mosque in the city. I visited this place in July 2019.

Tamil Muslim Mosque - Masjid in Saigon
Nov 2018 • Friends
This place is peaceful.. Nice location. Next to Sheraton Saigon Hotel. Behind the Mosque got Muslim school. In 1963 Tamil Muslims from India running this religious school inside the mosque compound.
Ground floor got many rooms to staying purpose. Now few people occupied. They running business.
Tourist attractive place... 1960s Indian Muslims from Tamil Nadu, built this mosque. Good architecture and design. Its look like a Indian Muslim Masjid in south India.
Beautiful place... must maintain...
If possible Indian High commission take necessary action. Its totally Indian Muslims property...
