Touristy, not of much interest. Overall underwhelming. The best thing I can say about the One Pillar Pagoda is that it was near the HCM Mausoleum so it was not far out of our way.

A small but the oldest pagoda in VN. The architect of this pagoda is unique. It's worth visiting when you are on the way to visit Ho Chi Minh Museum

A rather small and unattractive pagoda. The only thing special about it is may be it was erected on a large pillar.

Very crowded, lots of vendors getting on your back, bus load of kids who just visited the mausoleum.
I was very disappointed as I was looking forward to see it, quite small. Not worth visiting.

Wasn't much to see, just making sure I covered my places of interest count for the day. Its an Altar in the midst of the pond where people come to pray and do their offerings.
