Never really heard of this interesting religion before so find this place fascinating! Its very very colourful. The ceremony itself is completely mesmerising. I think to say they are not set up for tourists is unfair. Its their religion and they are worshipping, they're not...More

This temple is a must see, especially if your perception of temples has become monotonous due to visiting so many in the Far East. It's a good hour and a half drive from Saigon, but we combined this trip with a tour of the Cu...More

The location is a long drive from HCMC but worth it for the photo opportunity. There are ceremonies at midday and 6 pm inside the temple although to be honest they are not geared for tourists as inside the temple can be cramped

This combination of 6 religions seems weird to me, but has many adherents. The temple building is wonderfully garish. However, it’s a long way from anywhere…

This is a must see temple with amazing colours, shapes, sculptures, etc. Yes, it is over the top and eclectic, and nothing like you would ever expect to see as a religious building, but who cares... it is an amazing temple to see.

We plan to visit the temple independently. A few questions.. What time should we arrive for the noon ceremony? How long should we plan on spending at the temple? We plan to continue on to the Chu Chi Tunnels. Thanks, Sandra
