Small but beautiful Vietnamese Pagoda
Jan 2019 • Couples
Wednesday afternoon on the 9th January and we visited this Vietnamese Pagoda, which is situated near the centre of Can Tho. Our visit was scheduled as part of our Tour, and our Guide, Ha, was most knowledgeable and informative.

In the grounds in front of the Pagoda is a large statue of a smiling Buddha and nearby a statue of Guanyin, Godess of Mercy. The presence of male and female Dieties symbolises that all are welcome, both male and females. That is one of the major difference between a Vietnamese Pagoda and other Temples, which are exclusively for males.

At the front of the Pagoda are 3 gates, 2 smaller ones on either side of a larger one, the large gate is so that the Gods can pass through and the 2 smaller ones for guests and worshippers to pass through.

This 2 storey Pagoda, is a striking building with its red pillars, roof tiles and ornate roof. On the ground floor is the main Shrine is located along with other religious items. We also climbed the small staircase to the first floor where the old bell is housed along with more religious items and images.

To the side of the Pagoda is a tall ornate tower, which is the tomb of a Monk.

On entering the Pagoda, visitors are asked to remove their shoes and to wear appropriate clothing.

A beautiful Pagoda well worth a visit.

I and my friends are in general very interested in Buddhism and we happened to find this pagoda on our way to another pagoda. Its pretty nice and interesting to see especially, if you want to dig deeper into Buddhism in Vietnam.

Interesting stop and it takes about 15 minutes to see it all. Did not see many Monks but enjoyed looking around. Was not hassled in anyway.

Not a significant place to visit unless you're the area

The best thing I can say about Quang Duc Pagoda is that it's been recently renovated so it's in pretty shape. Otherwise, it's no different from thousands of pagoda in Vietnam...and definitely doesn't belong in the top tier by any means.

Well maintained, very small. If i didnt stay nearby, i'd have given it a miss to be honest. Few doors away from Hotel Xoai.

Small, but nice

My best memory from this place is the fold out hat I bought for 1 USD.

It is nice enough, not that special.

Traditional pagoda

Quang Duc pagoda seemed to me an interesting place. In the main room there are decorations made out of beads. On the top floor there is an embroidered picture of the Budda what seemed to me quite unusual.

You can take a leisurely walk around Can Tho to visit its many Pagodas. Quang Duc has an interesting gold wall, and only takes 5-10 minutes to walk around.
