This is one of the biggest and famous temple within Saigon city before 1975. This is a temple you should go within Saigon City if you just want to visit one temple only

It is working Buddhist temple. It is very interesting to come and sit, then feel the atmosphere when local Buddhist are praying.

The tallest pagoda in Ho Chi Minh City is pretty impressive. he inside is beautiful. This is not an old temple - it was built in 1971 but it has a timeless quality to it.

This temple locates by the road , Nam Ky Khoi Nghia St., from the airport to the district 1. Bus No is 7, 152, 4 and 3. The temple was opened by Vietnamese monk who learned in Japan, opened around 1870. It is worth to see.

This temple, despite being reputedly the largest temple in HCM City, was pretty average to me as there weren't many statues and ornate decorations and such to see inside. There's really just the main building of the temple that people can go in by going up the steps from the ground. Inside, at the front are three big Buddha statues,... More
