Monastry building is very impressive, decorated with lots of gold. Spent a bit of time there chatting with a friendly monk from Cambodia who has lived a very interesting life.

Take note that the map location provided is incorrect. It should be 10.0336216,105.7825643. Which is shown on google maps correctly as Chua Munirensay.

I was attracted in from the street by the sight of this impressive building complex. A monk waved me up to the main building’s platform. Our chat proved the most interesting part of the visit. His English was good and he explained that, after a few years in banking, he was now a monk since 3 years. The community of Khmer Buddhists is well represented in the Delta and up to HCMC. The main hall of prayer is basic and without artistic pretense – a place of worship at a time when the community is raising money for larger buildings (dormitory and study hall). Thanks to him I got interested in the network of Khmer religious places the areas and visited one of the many beautiful pagodas of Tra Vinh (the one called ‘Chua Hang’ in Vietnamese).

Of all the pagodas in Can Tho, this is definitely the most ornate. It's on one of the main streets and definitely worth the 5-10 minutes it takes to walk around and snap some photos.

This pagoda off a main street is one of the most eye catching spots in Can Tho. It is not overly large, but emerges from its surroundings like a jewel. Extensively painted in a gold colour, it has a rich patina. I was toured by the head monk, who was gracious and generous in explaining something of his beliefs.

this Khmer pagoda is a haven in a busy city. There is a very interesting purpose for this pagoda. Well worth seeking it out.
