Khmer Pagoda
Sep 2019
Many of the Hotels and tourist attractions in Can Tho City, are in the Hai Ba Trung road area, and its surroundings. A good planning before visiting this site, helps to maximise the available time at hand and avoids unnecessary traveling up and down searching for a missed attraction.

We were staying at Kim Too hotel which is also located on Hai Ba Trung road. We planned and followed a circuit on foot as follows.
Kim Too Hotel→ 150 meters→ Ong Temple → 20 meters across the road → Ho Chi Minh Memorial → 90meters → Niem Kiew Wharf → 300meters → Can Tho Night market road → 500 meters→ Phat Hoc Temple→ 90 meters across the road → Munirang say temple → 250 meters→ Tarot Museum → 500meters→ Bao Tang Quan Khu 9 (War Museum) → 260meters→ Can Tho Museum→ 230meters→ Kham Lon Can Tho ( Prison Provinciale-Colonial Prison)→ 500meters → Ninh Kieu Pedestrian bridge ( Cau di bo Ben Ninh Kieu) → 400 meters →Kim Too Hotel.

It was following this scheme that we reached Munirang say Temple.
This is a golden coloured Buddhist temple just across the road from Phat Hoc Buddhist temple and decided to check it out. It is built in the Khmer Angkor architecture style and is very impressive.
We explored the ground floor and then walked up the stairs to the area of worship. You need to remove your shoes to enter the area of worship where the buddha is sited on a golden throne on an altar.
The monks were welcoming and helpful. We spent about 30 minits here.

Lucky to have a monk who spoke English
Nov 2019
Our city guide took us to this extremely interesting pagoda. The 25 monks that work and live here are Mahayana Buddhists. In addition 50 students live here from around the Mekong Valley who come to study in the colleges, universities but cannot afford to live without the dorms provided by the pagoda. The pagoda is multi levels, along with dining area, dorms, prayer spaces, study spaces. etc.

map location corrected

First I thought (and wrote) that there is no entry on Tripadvisor for this site, because I did not find it on the map. however, it is just placed on the wrong location and I now sent a correction. this pagoda is definitely worth the visit, when in Can Tho. with its rich decoration, it is easy to spot it from the main road. worth the stop and to walk in.

A small Khmer pagoda
Oct 2019
I accidentally stumbled upon this temple after lunch one day. It's a nice little place to spend a few minutes in contemplation. The monks at the temple are very friendly. The head monk invited me to his office, offered tea and chatted with me for a while. One of the most uplifting, off-the-beaten-track, comforting experiences I've had during my travels.

Beautiful gold temple

The building is in gold colour so you can easily see it from afar. It is very beautiful and stunning! It is located near to the jetty of floating market.

Quiet and Interesting

We enjoy visiting pagodas. The architecture of each one offers something unique; almost like snowflakes, no two are alike. They are doing some renovation, but the pagoda is still open and we took the stairs to the second floor and walked around, looking at everything.

On the way back down, we saw some young students studying in one of the buildings, and they smiled and waved at us. We didn't come across any monks to talk to, but enjoyed looking at the design of the buildings, the artwork and the colors.

It was a brief visit, but an enjoyable one.

Hidden gem that stood out from m
Aug 2018 • Family
Hidden gem that stood out among typical buildings from the gold and white paint and beautiful roofs, a little peace can be felt upon entrance especially from the on going traffic two meters away. A truly harmonious place as we learnt a lot of animals were being cared for and many students in training. The monk we met there spoke fluent Khmer, Vietnamese and English unfortunately we lacked time and could not scratch more than just the surface and admire the beauty. A donation was given by me and the family, I wish for the very best of the Khmer community now on the land of Vietnamese people who occupied it three hundred years; not very long. If you can visit, I would do so! There are a few more marvelous temples along the same street, one Chinese and the other Vietnamese.

A Can Tho highlight
Sep 2017 • Family
My husband is Buddhist so he spotted the pagoda spires and wanted to visit. We were lucky enough to meet an English speaking monk Who told us about the local area, and explained the history of this Khmer Pagoda.

He also gave us a great explanation of the building process as they they are currently building a residence for disadvantaged Young people from the regional areas to stay while attending university.

My youngest daughter, who is also nominally a Buddhist, was delighted to meet her first mark! Both girls noted how smiling and laughing and Mike was at a characteristic of all Buddhist monks I have met so far
