For a temple this one was very pretty with several large Buddha statues in various positions and gorgeous gardens. If you're in the area it is worth a visit.

I really dont like to see this temple nowaday. It's so strange and crowded. I think that, in the near future, this place will be "replaced "...Tien Giang has alot of places to visit...why till keep this place as the "must visit"?
