Just walking in gave a sense of peace and wonderment with the beautiful, detailed carvings and statues, with the added bonus of incense. We bought 4 cones for the family, which will, apparently, burn for a month. A must see in Saigon.

Although this place is very popular with tourists, it's a calm oasis in the ever busy Ho Chi Minh city. Don't forget to get your own smoking spiral with your wish and hang it under the ceiling!
