Finding this temple was a delight. I first went the wrong way on an alley and the friendly people I met were ever so kind as to show me the way. It cost me 20 cents to park my bike at the temple. It was after lunch and there were quite a few worshipers. The beautiful temple was thick with... More

I went here after finding this gem on Tripadvisor. When I reached it was early morning and I spent almost two hours inside this beautiful temple without seeing any other tourist. The temple is located in a small side street and has several different levels with a lot to see on each - until you reach the main room on... More

There are so many temples throughout Asia and it's hard to decide which one should you visit. This one is certainly very unique because, it's very unique as it's down a side street and then down an alleyway in the middle of district 5 in Chinatown. What is so unique about this temple is that it doubles as a mausoleum... More

Wonderful visit to this out of the way temple. Worth climbing the stairs to view the fourth floor alone. But do not neglect the lower floors.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. Free entry. Fourth floor is amazing, with one central Buddha over 20ft.

Getting to walk through this temple at a leisurely pace was quite interesting. Much more complex and ornate than the other temples I visited. Felt welcomed by worshippers.

This was actually not that far from anything, and my friend had requested this stop to our tour guide beforehand so it was easy to find. You wouldn't have been able to tell from the street there is anything here, but once you go inside, and climb up a few stories, the room with the ten thousand Buddhas is gorgeous... More

An absolute, 100% MUST when visiting Saigon! Having lived here for the past 7 months, I've seen a lot of temples and pagodas, and this one is lovely! Once you get to the very top, prepare to be totally surprised!! Very highly recommended!
