“Another special gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely beautiful! Although busy, you must spend some time here, and you will feel the energy. To zone out from the hustle and bustle, you can find some inner peace. A very special and significant temple. Respect what you see and sense....you will walk away feeling like you had just been blessed.

“Small temple”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Was immediately disappointed after paying the entrance fee and entering the grounds - it was so small!
We took a few picture of the place and disappeared - all in less than 10 minutes.
Saw quite a number of locals pay to enter for prayers, it's probably very symbolic or lucky for the locals.
Guess if you should go, bring a local guide with you.

“Impressive perlmut work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Well, yes it is one of many temples but I was impressed by the work done using perlmut to write Chinese characters into carved wood. The temple itself is very nicely kept. The garden around it is a shame.
Entrance fee: 10.000 Dong
Quan Thanh Temple is just about a 10 min. walk from Tran Quoc Pagoda.

“Money better spent elsewhere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

10,000 dong entrance fee to walk around the little temple. I didn't find it that interesting . There is a big black bronze Buddha that is kind of cool. The most interesting part was the entrance gate which you can see from the outside without paying.
