Beautiful Hindu Temple!

The temple was so close to our hotel. As hindu we visited and prayed at the temple. The culture of praying was different. We adopt to their way. Happy!

We saw this Hindu temple from our hotel. We were glad to have the opportunity to visit a Hindu temple considering they are fairly rare in such an overwhelmingly Buddhist country. The colors are very bright and the statues and altars seem to be more irreverent than sacred or holy in contrast to Christian churches or Buddhist temples. Quite interesting.... More

If youre close bye, go there, but I wouldnt walk more than 20 minutes to see this place. Its a typical hindu temple but in Vietnam, apart from that the temple itself is very small.

One good thing with Trip advisor is, it appears in the list of first few places. Being a Hindu, obviously this came on my top list. We were very happy to have one Temple at distant place of our visit. It was 5 minutes walk from my Hotel. Therefore, we decided to visit first and then second time before we... More

This temple is within walking distance from where we stayed. We went to visit the temple in the morning. Love the colours of the temple and is beautiful. The temple was not busy and is very calm.

Did my homework on the Net. There are two Hindu temples in Ho Chi Minh. This Mariamman Temple attracts a number of people, Vietnamese. Amazed by their religious convictions. All run by Vietnamese and there were thousands visiting this temple during Chinese New Year 2017. Very near to Ben Thanh market . There is one more temple ,Sri Thanduyuthapaany Temple.... More

Close to the Bahn Tan market the temple is small, but interesting. The walls around the temple have descriptions in Vietnamese and English about the deities and believe of Hindu religion.

This temple was fantastic. The architecture was amazing but inside was also impressive as they have English descriptions of the gods. Make sure to take your shoes off before entering though.

This is an interesting building still very much in use as a temple. There is some marvellous decorative work inside with a fine array of various gods. We were made very welcome there. The peace of the place was somewhat disturbed as there is a programme of works underway and the contractors were cutting tiles with a machine!
